The Christian ‘nowhere man’

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.  {Prov 18:1, ESV}

I wonder if this little proverb explains why some professing Christians decide that they don’t need church. Couple the first line with Paul’s claim that God displays His multifaceted wisdom to cosmic powers through the church (Eph 3:10) and the second line is thrown into sharp relief.

Nowhere Man, please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command

He’s as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see . . .
