Mark, Thanks for the link.

The essay and resulting comments are thought provoking. What can we learn:

1. The Church Universal is more than the sum of the individuals in it.

2. The Church Universal exists because Jesus established it, and the Holy Spirit maintains it.

3. Just as no two individuals are identical, so no two churches are identical.

4. We need to recognize our responsibility to God is to worship Him and care for those around us. However, we also need to recognize that people get in the way of our fulfilling that responsibility: I may be the cause of someone else's failure, and others may hinder me. We need to learn (and be taught???) how to look past others to focus on God.
