The body is an organism; not an organization.
The church is a body.
An organism is complex; but it functions. And it functions in a common sense kind of way. It doesn’t function “by the book.” It functions innately. It has an autonomous—an involuntary—system that cooperates, supports; but is not under the totalitarian rule of consciousness. It is a relationship.
An organization is like a business. It is Legal. It has Rules. It has spreadsheets. It is Dry. Arid. Dead.
But where is the Water in the desert? “Don’t ask, ‘who will tell us what to do?” (Like manuals or bylaws do). It is already in you! What to do comes from inside you—in your heart! It is John’s final word: “No more books! No more words! Not one more jot! You have the spirit! Enough! Now live! Create!”
