Can someone drop me a KJV passage of Christ asking the people listening to him to lay some concrete down and apply for tax-exempt statuses?

I'm being glib. But seriously though, can someone cite a Christ delivered passage of him asking his people to structure themselves as rigidly as they sometimes do?

Not an organized religious person, huh? Or familiar with ASL*?

Quote:
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." (Matt. 16:18-19)


* At least, that's how I was taught to sign 'Peter' - make a fist, like the rock that Christ formed his church on, and hit that with your other hand making the letter 'P'.

Either your fists are a very peculiar shape, or your 'p's are.

Matthew 28:16-20
King James Version (KJV)

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


He didn't say build a building. But Christianity grew out of Judaism which had in its history the Tabernacle, the Temple and the synagogue. It's practical to have a place if people are going to gather.

edit - It doesn't have to be rigid. Humanity does a good job of screwing most things up.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

The Bible doesn't mention a hierarchy, except that there were Deacons and Elders and the congregation. So 3 levels. The difference in qualifications for Deacons and Elders is that Elders need to be able to teach. That's as organized as it needs to be.
