Naivety in the IC

Generally, the Institutional Church does not teach people Biblical discernment (with the rare exception). The atmosphere is not one of testing, weighing or validating things with scripture. The ethos is one where people can’t begin to consider that anything could possibly be wrong, or that their leaders could ever be wrong: a blind, passive, naive acceptance of anything which comes from those deemed as spiritual authority figures. True “critical thinking” doesn’t even enter the equation. This is a fair assessment of Institutional Christianity.
