It's actually a lack of love that has trapped "Christian" people in such doctrines as the Spirit is not given or does not work miracles today or that the wicked go to eternal torment and such practices as repetitive public ritual or being reduced to other mediators performing for them. People, often so young they cannot be considered accountable, accept religious indoctination because they've been drawn along with the crowds and are subjected to those with titles of honor from other men. Yet, even their more responsible elders, being without knowledge, should be considered worthy of but few stripes for they have been given little. How much more we should care to find and impart what can free them.
When we come to the dealings of God, if not for others, then at least our own self, and are under the conviction of sin, we know we are doomed except we obtain the work of Christ as our own. After initiation into the Spirit, when I found I knew not my day of visitation and I had sinned before His face, I was, "Cut off suddenly, and that without remedy." Now that it was too late I most desperately sought the mercy of God. "Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him..." (Joel 214)
He said, "I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground." (Isaiah 443) The problem is people are not thirsty. Their ground is not dry enough. They feel satisfied in themselves. Their knowledge seems sufficient...until the trial is upon them.
If we actually love those who are suffering, we will seek Him Who, "Was moved with compassion and healed their sick." If we could love enough we would seek in abandoned desperation for some kind of mercy, a little something left over as He passed by for those of our children or brethren that are doomed as we suppose because of what we were taught. He would answer and lead us to those truths so clearly stated in the Scripture, such as, "God is not willing that any should perish..." and that, "...God our Saviour...will have all men to be saved and come unto the knowledge of the truth." (1 Timothy 23-4) In those gatherings they claim to be the body of Christ, where none but the hierarchy on stage are allowed to participate, if we cared enough, we would cry out in birth pangs for the tied together legs of those in labor to give birth to Christ the many-membered.
The Word, Who is the Image and Likeness of God, must be formed again as us in whom He has delighted to dwell. As His Body we are destined to be raised up to inherit all things. "The Perfect Man" (Ephesians 413) must come forth and be raised up, illuminating the world with the multi-tinted fire of the Wisdom of God.
