Why the Church is messed up

“The Church is a society of sinners – the only society in the
world in which membership is based upon the single qualification
that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership.”
– Charles C. Morrison

This explains a lot about why the church is screwed up.

I want to be careful about how I talk about it cause Christ loves the Church so much, but seriously–doesn’t this help  you understand?/

For those wise enough to not throw the baby out with the bathwater–it’s good to remember that the problem of sinners getting together and messing up has little to do with the fact that there is a God who loves you and wants you to find Him.  Don’t let yourself put him in a box and keep yourself from Him because of a problem with the Church.

Speaking of Church, most American friends go on Easter.  Any takers in Boston or Chili, NY?  We can sit together (Chili-ians).

“The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.”  Tim Keller

(also, we do good things too sometimes).

also also, i adore my church in Boston (www.fenwaychurch.org and http://www.parkstreet.org) and i love my church at home too: http://www.tfhny.org .  I am talking about Christians/the Church as a whole (myself included).
