from an e-mail someone sent someone about a College Professor.
The Professor read a quote that summed up the progression of Christianity. How it started as an assembly, then moved to Greece and became a philosophy, then to Rome and became an institution, then to America where it became an enterprise. The Professor went on to clarify that an enterprise is a business. One girl in his class raised her hand and asked him “But isn’t the church supposed to be a body?” The Professor told her “Yes.” To which she replied, “When a body becomes a business – isn’t that a prostitute?”
My husband said it’s a hireling. That’s what Jesus called it.
