Church Becomes a Glorified Costume Party

Instead of a hospital for sufferers, church becomes a glorified costume party, where lonely men and women tirelessly police each other’s facade of holiness.  The higher up in the pecking order, the less room for weakness.  Perhaps it should come as no surprise when we read headlines of pastors of legalistic churches acting out in self-destructive ways (Romans 5:20).
