I agree with the concept that being a Christian is a relationship rather than a religion. I do not agree when this concept is targeting the local church.
God is a God of order. Paul told the church at Corinth, “Let all things be done decently and in order.” (1 Corinthians 14:40) The local church is organized in it’s services and mission/evangelism outreach.
To say, “I do not like organized religion”; is saying, “I like disorganized religion.” It is analogist to a person claiming to love swimming, but not a swimming pool; or that they love football, but not a football field.
Does a person really like education, but not schools? Does a person really like medical care, but not hospitals?
At Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus, Jesus asked, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?” (Acts 9:4) How was Saul (Paul) persecuting Jesus; He was in heaven. Saul was persecuting the church. Christ is so connected to the church, when you persecute it you are persecuting the Lord.
God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
