From the blog this week: What Can Stop the Church?
Some resources from around the web to encourage your growth in grace…click the links below.
“We are not called to change the world on our own. We are called to be faithful.”
“Cultural Christianity cannot withstand scrutiny of faith. Adherents to this false gospel will buckle under their own weight because their faith is insecurely anchored in their inability. This means many people who were forced to vacate a church building during COVID and go online instead will likely not be returning if and when churches are once again open at full capacity.”
“As you and your church move toward greater health, and as meaningful church membership becomes more readily recognizable, then at some point you’ll be ready to take steps toward addressing your non-attending members.”
“Jesus once addressed the ways we relate to our enemies and his teaching is as relevant today as it was 2,000 years ago. It’s as relevant to the people who tweet evil as the ones who speak it to our faces, as relevant to the people who try to shame us virtually as the ones who do so in our presence.”
“It should always concern us when this part of following Jesus is de-emphasized. And yet some will still say, ‘I want a love affair with God, not all this theology. I want a faith that feels and a love that does, so don’t give me doctrine…just give me Jesus.'”
