The problem with the institutional church of the 1960's

It was institutional--it was never about God alive and well in the lives of the individuals 24/7. I agree with this assessment of Christianity that I found in the forward of "Mere Christianity": The major battlefront of Christianity is individuals who wake up each morning and decide that they want to be God's immortal. And as I full well know, that is impossible without a full understanding of who God is, who I am in relation to him as well as what God has done for me and is currently doing for me through the love he expressed in Jesus Christ! Something American UMC lost the ability to do a long time ago when it decided to embrace theological plurality because theology was not as important as "what we did". And we are currently witnessing the failure of that experiment in Big Tent Christianity.
