We really want to tell you the good story! But first, we really have to tell you the bad story about the broken system that many know as church. A typical churchgoer reports, "They pretend to preach the truth and we pretend to listen. It's a shallow charade."
People fled to America for freedom of religion – freedom from man-made religion. They were fleeing from oppressive denominations in Europe, but the denominations all followed.
After hundreds of years and as many new sects, people are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the bureaucratic religious establishment. Today's denominations don't act like Jesus. They often act with excessive contempt and unloving attitudes toward those outside their clique. Others are just big businesses turning a profit on people’s emotions.
A growing movement of people who are:
Man-made religion is consuming people's focus, efforts, and resources with the traditions of men. Organized religion is out of touch with reality and out of line with the Bible. It fails to help people develop their gifts and become godly leaders, leaving them biblically illiterate and in a state of perpetual spiritual immaturity. Who wants to depend on hypocrites to tell them what to think?
There's a spiritual revolution afoot. Many people want to make a difference, but are ill-prepared because of the pervasive leave-it-to-the-experts propaganda. This mentality has impacted society in a lot of negative ways, with families probably hurt the most.
The priesthood of all believers is a biblical concept that is rarely emphasized by those whose paycheck or social status depends on unbiblical perceptions, who are most aggressively opposed to the spiritual revolution.
