Why It’s Time to Leave the Corporate Christian Church from Health Impact News
GNN Note – Not for everyone is an understatement. Take with a grain of salt.
Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.
But when the Jews opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads! I am clear of my responsibility. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.”
Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of God. (Acts 18:4-7)

I am going to state right up front here that this article is not for everyone.
My target audience are those of you who no longer feel comfortable or welcome in your Christian Church due to all the things that have happened during the past 2 plus years since the Plandemic was unleashed, or to those of you who see the insanity around you and are searching for answers to understand everything, but know all too well that you will not find those answers in organized religion, including the Christian religion.
This article is addressing the true disciples of Jesus Christ, or those who want to be his disciples. So if you want to know if you are a disciple of Jesus or not, please first read the article I published a couple of weeks ago:

The English Word “Church” is the Wrong Translation for the Meeting of Believers in the New Testament
Before I get into the reasons why the true disciples of Jesus Christ need to leave the Christian Churches, it is first important to understand that the English word “church” is the wrong word to translate the original word in the Greek text of the New Testament, which is ekklesia. The Greek word ekklesia means “assembly,” or “congregation.”
The English word “church,” if you study its etymology (history of use) comes originally from the Greek word “kurios” which means “Lord.”
It is an improper word to use in translation of “ekklesia.” In the Roman world of New Testament times, ekklesia was used for general assemblies, including secular or legal assemblies, and not necessarily just religious assemblies.
Ekklesia is the same word used in Acts 19:32, 39, 41 where it is translated “assembly” in most English Bibles, and not “church”:
