In chapter 11 of his sermons on the book of Acts, James Montgomery Boice wrote that no church is perfect:

There is no perfect church, not even the Church of the apostles. I read Acts 4:32, “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had,” and I think, ah, there is the perfect church. But even this church had Ananias and Sapphira in it.

Someone once told girls Spurgeon that they were leaving his church because they were going to find the perfect church. Spurgeon, that a great deal of wit and sometimes was more forthright than people there to be today, said, “When you find it, please don’t join it, because you’ll ruin it.”
