Most “Christians” put Church before Jesus.

Most people who identify as Christians put their Church, Denomination, Priest, Pastor, Televangelist or whatever before Jesus. They will also normally put their Church, etc as a higher authority than the Bible, which they have probably never read even once cover-to-cover. For a genuine Christian their relationship with Jesus and the Authority of Scripture must be absolutely central. Given the vast number of different churches holding to different views, it should be self-evident that attachment to a particular Church is not what Christianity is about. Denomination is also roundly condemned by Paul in Chapter 3 of 1 Corinthians. But how would anyone know that without reading the Bible?

Most “Christians” claim to follow a Church and Jesus. The big question is, which one takes precedence?
