This is another thread really only for Christians, but since I have opened it here I look forward to reading posts from anyone else. In that way I learn more, and it makes the conversation more lively. I picked up the phrase " the universal church of Christ" from a Seventh Day Adventist Quarterly where they clearly declared that they were not the universal church of Christ. I therefore thought why should we join any established and institutional Church? One Adventist who came to my bedside in hospital said it was for fellowship, and I answered that I was getting more fellowship on the ward and on the Internet than I ever did by attending Church. I am interested in Christian Anarchy but would never claim to be one. Attach a label and we could easily become institutionalised.
