The Real Object?
"There are doubtless many reasons for the degeneration of Christianity into churchiness, and the narrowing of the Gospel for all mankind into a set of approved beliefs; but the chief cause must be the worship of an inadequate god, a cramped and regulated god who is 'a good churchman' according to the formulas of the worshipper. For actual behavior infallibly betrays the real object of a man's worship."
