The time of the protestant denomination is over. The church cannot thrive with that anchor strapped to our backsides.
In LotR it always makes me sad seeing the elves get in the ships and leave because their time is over. It also makes me sad to see the system I\’ve been part of my whole life end.
But it doesn\’t work anymore. We can\’t afford it. Let us detach ourselves lest we go down the tubes with our denominations.
