Finally, one will have to decide with what one should stay. With Jesus or with Church is the inquiry. If you are with Church, you cannot be simultaneously with Jesus and if you are with Jesus, you cannot be with Church also. Lord Jesus has rightly said,
Mathew: 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Hypocrisy (Church).
Jesus says, in Eye for Eye (Mathew 5:38-42)
5:39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him or her other cheek also.
5:42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
In Love for Enemies,
5:45 you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous as well.
5:46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?
5:47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing other than what others are doing? Do not even pagans do that? That means, greet all equally.
5:48 Be perfect, therefore, as our heavenly Father is perfect.
Above quotes could be misinterpreted, as concession to evil and that will lead to wrong behavior of the faithful by encouraging evil doer instead of stopping. If you are with Church and not with Jesus you cannot consider you as a true Christian, you are a Popian since Church is a Popian activity.
