"I can admit of no independent free-lances in Christianity. Christians are soldiers who belong to an army. They have commanders, and must obey them. Christ himself, 'gave some to be apostles... some to be pastors and teachers.' Nobody can be a Christian and declare Jesus as his only pastor, just as nobody can obey a general while refusing obedience to the captain, or even the sergeant, though these may be less competent than the commander in chief.
We used to live under a free enterprise system, and we have applied to our churches principles and ideas taken from this system. But Christianity is not of this world. There is no such thing as free enterprise in Christianity. There is organization, hierarchy and, I repeat, obedience."
-Richard Wurmbrand, Romanian pastor who spent fourteen years being tortured in communist prisons
