Eugene Peterson, The Jesus Way
"I love Jesus but I hate the church" is a theme that keeps reappearing with variations in many settings. So it is interesting to note that Jesus, who in abridged form is quite popular with the non-church crowd, was not anti-institutional. Jesus said, "Follow me," and then regularly led his followers into the two primary religious institutional structures of his day: the synagogue and the temple. Neither institution was without its inadequacies, faults, and failures. The temple especially was shot through with corruption, venality, injustice, discrimination . . . All the same, he didn't boycott the place. . . A spirituality that has no institutional structure or support very soon becomes self-indulgent and subjective and one-generational.
