Christianity’s Gross Conformity

Every society in the world, including Israel, had its specialized holy seasons, holy places, and holy people. In Christianity, all three were abolished … They had no holy buildings, but met in private houses – the incarnation of God had made the secular sacred. As for holy people, why, all believers were called to be that holy people … There is no priestly body within Christianity. It is a one-class society – though you would never guess as much, so grossly has conformity to pagan and Old-Testament models distorted this unique facet of Christ’s community.
