Hi Pancho,

It doesn't make sense because if religionists believe Jesus is the Word because that is their hold on power, then they don't understand the teachings of Christ because Christ taught having temporal power, and control over other people, in this world was a delusion, a vain imagining. That's why he exhorted his disciples not to call any man father or master, for example.

The "Church" is a product of man and has no basis in the teachings of Christ. The word isn't even mentioned in the Bible. The concept of a church or a temple is a Pagan phenomenon, and those that create these buildings made of stone, to house God's presence, are doing so to because they are not what they claim to be. In the truest sense of the word, they claim to be Christian but are not. They are wolves in sheep's clothing who Christ gave warnings about.
