Voices: Thoman on institutionalism

Please read this blogpost from Roger Thoman.  It is brief and meaningful.

Someone said: It’s one thing to get the person out of the institution, it’s another thing to get the institution out of the person.  It is difficult to get religious thinking out of our inner system.   – R. Thoman

I gather that Thoman spends more time being church than writing about it or playing it, and that is good.

    Thoman’s comments may awaken some who “sleep.” Being church is much more freeing than trying to fit into a box. But to “be church,” one has to know what Jesus says…and intentionally follow Jesus…Jesus…not opinion makers.

    “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31,32 (NIV)
