For centuries, the northern kingdom of Israel claimed that they were worshipping Jehovah even though most of their religion centered around things which were not in the law which God had given through Moses.
It was primarily because of their religion and other aspects of their lives that God sent the Assyrian Empire against them.
Counterfeit "Christianity" might as well fade away because those who follow after it are wasting their time anyway.
There were no supra-congregational organizations in the first century because God did not authorize them.
You are so right..
I hate it when people act like in order to be part of a certain faith you have to vote a certain way. Too often in Mormonism, there's pressure to vote Republican. I don't know if you caught Dallin H. Oaks' talk from this past conference, but he aggressively went after that very notion. That the church has no political affiliation and that members shouldn't be pressured to vote a certain way. We need to hear more of that.
