The Reformation has never ended. It is just beginning.
This fact, that the “churches” we see today and the ecclesia’s of the New Testament are not in any way the same thing, is a truth that very few want to consider for fear that it may shout at them still louder.
I seriously doubt if any actual objective study of the Greek word ecclesia has ever been made by them.
If it were, it would be found that the institutions commonly called “churches” cannot be identified with and have no connection with the ecclesia of the New Testament.
