Tozer on the church vs other institutions.

According to the Scriptures the church is the habitation of God through the Spirit, and as such is the most important organism beneath the sun. She is not one more good institution along with home, the state, and the school; she is the most vital of all institutions- the only one that can claim a heavenly origin.
