“The scriptural concept that every believer is a priest before God was gradually lost and a special body of super-Christians emerged who were looked to for practically everything and so came to be termed, ‘the ministry.’ When the ministry was thus left to the professionals there was nothing left for the people to do other than come to church and listen. Soon Christianity became nothing but a spectator sport.”
