Is this a "yes" or a "no"? (or a "mu"?) I don't see how this answers
the question. My question again, in new words. Is a "Church" (and the
orginization that goes with it) part of what God would have wanted us to
do? I'm not asking about the propagation of His word, because He
obviously wants that. I'm asking about the way it is done now. Jesus
himself travelled from town to town, and so did his disciples. Should
we not model the system after Him?
