Organism, to Organization, to Institution Series – Part 3
(A single cell organism is a building block of life. When multiplying, how can you prevent it from becoming an institution where the organism can easily die or become lost in its structure? The following blogs in this series will examine the Church as an organized institution or an organism built on relationships.)
In Katrina Scherben’s video Organism Organization found on YouTube, Katrina attempted to explain her theory of The Organization of Human Organisms. She claims…
Atoms make up
Molecules which can make
Organelles that are inside cells that make up
Cells that are the smallest structural and functional units of life that make up
Tissues that are made up of cells that are similar in structure
and function, which work together to form a special activity.
Organs that are made up of tissues that are similar in structure and
function, which work together to form a special activity.
Organ Systems that are made up of organs that work together to
form a special function for the organism.
(There are 11organ systems in the human body.)
Organism, the total body
Over the centuries, the church created a hierarchal, institutional, leadership pyramid led by Popes, the Bishop of Canterbury, Apostles, etc. who headed Bishops, Cardinals, and Senior Pastors who ruled over boards, presbyteries, and committees who instructed their pastors and priests to organize programs and services staffed and financed by volunteers who were parishioners. This produced a system that has brought division, bickering and disunity.
Local churches, cells, are to support one another (the body) through service through a linear relationship, for no cell, tissue, organ, or organ system is more important than the other. Each is to support the other. It leadership and followers should literally be walking beside one another as Jesus did with his disciples. Each body part is diversely different but must support the other differing body parts in order for the body to function as a whole. How this functions will directly influence the spiritual growth of every believer while bringing unity to the Body of Christ.
