Getting the body of Christ out of the church system ... and the church system out of the body of Christ.

It's about two thousand years since the disciples were first called "Christians" at Antioch and a lot has happened since then. Up to this point in time, God has allowed us to look at the body of Christ for the perspective of the church system. Now, we must look at the body of Christ and the church system from God's perspective. When we do this, we see that the church system is no different than any other organization; it bears all the hallmarks of human endeavour. We also see that the church system is not the body of Christ; they are two completely different spiritual entities. Therefore, the body Christ must be separate from the church system, this is a Biblical principle.

I once heard it said that, "God brought His people out of Egypt, but Egypt did not come out of His people". Physical separation is not sufficient, there must also be an inner working of the spirit in our hearts and minds. This is the kind of transformation that many are talking about today. Without this kind of "metamorphosis" then we just take our old ways with us into the future so that apart from a few external modifications, nothing really changes. In time, "the new" takes on the exact same characteristics as "the old".

So the purpose of the freeradical newsletter is to help the body of Christ in several ways. Firstly, to see more clearly the structure and purpose of the church system and the plans that God has for it (her). Today, huge amounts of time, effort and money are being put into trying to change and "transform" the church system. This is futile. The body of Christ must not fight with the church system; God will deal with the church system when the right time comes.

Secondly, to impart a vision of how the body of Christ can function outside of the church system, free from the constraints of hierarchy, human control, and the system's routine and mechanistic ways of communicating and working.

Thirdly, to encourage the body of Christ to put the "theory" of our new found freedom in Christ into "practice", that is, to live out what God has done for us in Christ ... so that all the members of the body of Christ can experience "a new and living way" of relating to God and each other.
