Oooh... THAT cuts pretty close to the problem, no? They love Christ instead of "christandthechurch", ministry-style. And then they're wide open to love their neighbors, which might well involve putting the needs of those neighbors before the needs of the Mother Church. And so on, as religious organization takes a back seat to love. Big problem, here - can't have that, not for a minute.

So "spirituality" becomes a big shibboleth. No, we want Organization Men (and Women), though and through. They are here for the Lord's Move. No loving your neighbors, or that spiritual stuff.
