Jesus thought of the Church differently.
Jesus identifies Himself with His Church.
"Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?"
Which is why He also said,
"If he won't listen to the church, treat him as a pagan or tax collector."
But if the Church does not heed the Word of God and we know the Truth, why adhere to the word of Man when we know it contradicts the Truth?
