Americans are in a fog. I don’t have any other way of explaining what is going on. For the most part, otherwise sensible thinking people cannot put two and two together and come up with four.
Okay, I have no one to blame but myself. I should have seen it coming.
This is the last time I am going to write about church leadership for a while. At least that is my plan. But I feel an urgency to awaken the shepherds. God will hold them accountable. I’m sorry if my words hurt their feelings.
Allow me to begin by saying, if the shoe fits…wear it.
Now please don’t email me about how wrong I am for pointing out the obvious; the glaringly obvious even. Please don’t tell me how harsh I am, or how your pastor is a great man of God, or how your church is the best thing since sliced bread. If you attend a church with a real pastor, you are truly one of the lucky ones. But the odds are, your pastor isn’t all that great. He has just convinced you that he is.
That may seem like an odd question to ask. After all, everyone knows Jesus. At least that is what they tell me when we’re out on the streets.
Here is a question for you, the reader. Should the focus of our efforts be only on getting the lost “saved”, or should we be as concerned for those being damaged by the sinful behavior of others?
I hope this doesn’t come across as self-serving, although I don’t apologize if it does. I just want to share with you a couple of stories from the past couple of weeks.
