In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centering on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe , where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America where... it became an enterprise."

---Richard Halverson


"An enterprise. That's a business." "A business? But isn't it supposed to be a body?" "Yes." "But when a body becomes a business, isn't that a prostitute?"
