Moving forward I have to unlearn and stop being lazy to study the bible, test all things like Paul said and love the Lord over a congregation and the human relationship.
It's the culture, the pride and everything else that goes with it that needed to be repented of. Pride alone can separate and divide oneself from fellow members of the Body. So what if there are other Christian meeting with other churches. I learned "don't get caught up in a name". Every church has to take a name if they want their IRS tax benefits. Content of the message is more important than the name on the building. So what if there is a pastor. The local churches had their own pastoral system in paper form. Scripture became a craving no man's ministry could satisfy.
