The church is not the large corporation

The church is not the large corporation. I sometimes hear people confusing the two. They start thinking the church is a bureaucracy and then want things like eternal truth to somehow be bureaucratic. They want the church to have a corporate ladder. They want all truth to be filed somewhere in the bureau of quotations. They care a lot about who they rub elbows with, forgetting that God who seeth in secret rewards openly.
Instead the corporation exists to support the church. The church is a prophet and twelve apostles under the direction of Jesus Christ. If the corporation vanishes tomorrow, the church still exists in its perfect fullness.
