Over the years I have often run into arguments over the "institutionalized church," or the "institutional church." There are those who argue that the church shouldn't be institutionalized at all, and should follow a pattern shown in the New Testament - a more simple approach without all the buildings and programs and hierarchical authority and what have you of contemporary church. Then there are those within the "institutional" church who like to point out that the people who argue against it don't have an argument, because, after all, the church itself is an institution, established by Christ.
Well, of course the church is an institution, and it is established by Christ. But from what I read (from the most articulate of the anti-institutionalists), they aren't actually arguing against the idea that the church is an institution. They are arguing that there are churches (even the majority) that have been institutionalized by man to such a degree that they don't resemble the simple institution established by Christ.
