I was having a cup of joe this morning on my front porch and I was moved to pray for the hoards of people who are seeking truth outside of organized religion.
I live in a unique community where I share Christ with tons of people, albeit not in an organized manner. The longer I live in Christ away from the religious system the more I see the burden of man on us all.
You can read books and quit church and still be as religious and dead as you were in organized religion. I am just starting to realize the depths of my own in dwelt sin and religious slants and it feels like an eternity since I quit "church" to seek Christ.
I want to personally encourage anyone reading this that a) Christ is large b) we are small c) following Him is at times is hard d) There is true rest and understanding that Christ is Love.
Keep quitting "church" and keep seeking Truth aka Jesus.
