The Coercive and Non-Coercive Churches
Concerning what the “Church” is or should be and what it is not.
After 2000 years of confusion and misrepresentation by religious leaders, the answer to the question of Pilate “What is truth?” is as difficult to settle among the modern church denominations as it was amongst the Pharisees, Sadducees and Zealots of that day. Pilate found no fault in the statement of Jesus, “Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”
The early Church was composed of men who were the benefactors who did not exercise authority but provided all the social welfare of the people through the perfect law of liberty by faith, hope and charity. That took real faith and doing, forgiveness and giving, sacrifice and love. Being a Christian was not as easy as modern Christians would like to believe.
Instead the modern church sends people to eat at the tables of those socialist benefactors who exercise authority one over the other which makes the word of God to none effect. They were warned that those tables served deceitful meats34, that they were a snare and a trap.
Since religion is how you take care of the needy of society….
The religion practiced today is done at the government temples which provide for the needy of modern society. Those administrators are the priests of the people’s true religion and their government is the new Pharisees of the Coercive Church established by men. Their schemes of social security are formed like those of Herod and the Pharisees and again make the word of God to none effect. What they do on Sunday is just to ease their own conscience or tickle their ears with false hopes so they may give heed to fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
