What is the difference between the church Jesus builds and the Christian Industry? The former is the new covenant manifestation of Jesus in people via the Holy Spirit. It is the life of Jesus in individuals, families and as His Church.
‘He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire’ Luke 3.16 NLT.
His Church is the incarnate fire of God that burns away the flesh and fills us with Jesus. Then there is the manifestation of the letter as the church. The Christian Industry is the reduction of a life in Jesus to profession, a career, an organization and a burocracy – a burocracy that is itself an adjunct of the world system. As such the Christian Industry will represent itself, but unfortunately not the Kingdom of God’s Son.
