Flint pebble

Isn’t the great world organization which names itself after Christ serving a god other than the God whom Jesus confessed, the God of a totally different order? Hasn’t the institutional church sided with wealth and protected it, sanctified mammon, christened warships, and blessed soldiers going to war? Isn’t the Christian state the most ungodly institution that ever existed? Aren’t the state and the organized church, which protect privilege and wealth, diametrically opposed to the coming order of God?
