It seems to me that in these last few years, we have a lot of professed Christians who are simply dogging the Church. They make claims that the Church has completely lost their way, and many of them are forming their own church in order to do so. We've had two youth ministers of the church where I currently serve who have left to start their own church "the right way" in the last seven years, and it always causes more problems than it fixes. What are your responses to people like that, and what can be done to support the church instead of trying to tear it down? As an aside, one of my friends and I have discussed what God is teaching us in life, and he wrote me this: "I don't know very much. In 2,000 years of church history I created my own little belief system -- sort of like God was telling me that his people somehow got it wrong for the last 2,000 years and now I was going to get it right. There is a reason why they call them the church fathers--Oh well, grace is amazing." I really enjoyed the wisdom from a 23-year-old.
