But the church is never wholly free:

 It tolerates injustice, special privilege, and indifference to suffering, as though it were not accountable to a tribunal higher than the world’s . It passes by on the other side, thus breaking the covenant . In the midst of this unfreedom the congregation comes together to adore that which is holy, to confess its own brokenness, and to renew the covenant.
JLA, “Postscript: The Church That Is Free,” The Prophethood of All Believers
