The real problem with Christians of today is that they despise the authority of God and choose the authority of men as a substitute. Jeremiah 5:26-27 KJV  For among my people are found wicked men : they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.  As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. Revelation 18:2 KJV  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. .
