One thing the institutional Church must do, if it wants to be a Church that is an extension of Christ Jesus in time and space, is to rid itself of the illogical, groundless and erroneous idea that it can be the Church that Jesus desires it to be and continue to be a Church that acquiesces to and participate in the system, principles, practices and spirit that slew Jesus, which to this day dominate the state and secular society. If those who control the institutional Church cannot see with absolute moral clarity that the words, deeds and spirits of those on Golgotha killing Jesus—which are the same words, deeds and spirits of all who kill for a government, religion, ethic group or ideology—are diametrically the logical opposite of the words, deeds and spirit of the Man on the Cross being killed, and could never be what the Crucified One morally endorses—then such Church leaders must be converted or be replaced.
If the minimal spiritual clarity of perception needed to enable a bishop, priest or minister to see the infernal abyss between the words, deeds and spirits of Jesus’ killers and the words, deeds and spirit of the One being slaughtered, he or she should be dismissed from office for the temporal and eternal good of that particular Christian community and of all humanity—for he or she is self-evidently a blind guide blinding others to God’s Plan for the salvation of all through Jesus.
