There are churches out there that dodge controversial issues, dodge all of Mac's controversial books (Gospel According to Jesus, Hard to Believe, Strange Fire, etc..) but will teach his biblical exposition books and commentaries. Also these churches will focus much on discipleship (a good thing) but be very seeker-friendly in their evangelism and church philosophy. Not saying these churches are doing it wrong in every area, but I just do not believe its biblical to dodge controversial subjects and theology. The Bible and studying it is our main focus, but studying it in depth will detail controversial issues in the church. A church can spend all its time studying the book of Acts, but hardly touch on the book of Romans.
