The Problem of community implosion

The real problem for the Church goes back to the schism when the gnostics were driven underground and the Church was taken over by a professional clergy that run it as an extension of the Roman Empire.

Thus the resulting organization continues to be more Roman than Catholic. The empire substituted the kissing of Cesar’s ring for the kissing of the Pope’s ring. But the disease is still the same. Hierarchy with no regard for its own community.
