    Something EVERY CHRISTIAN MUST READ!!!!

    I happen to think that the only writing that falls into that category is the Bible, but I'll probably take a gander [​IMG]

    Psychobable for the religious. A grain of truth wrapped in a mountain of words in order to sell books. You don't "fall in Love" with God. You learn to love Him or you don't (it's up to you), but it isn't "falling".

    Josh Harris just rode the coat tails of papa into the ministry. Why not make a few bucks in the process.

    I think it is sad.
    we will gobble up "PURPOSE DRIVEN life" because it says something that tickles our ears, but when an author comes out and says something that is soild, then it's "Psychobable for the religious"

    He's a reformed fella.

    The thing that impressed me more was that
    John MacArthur and Mark Denver both gave the book thumbs up!

    C.R I applaude your efforts and think that what you posted is correct.

    But, the thing it most people when they do not agree with a church leave. Depending on the situation, might not come back. I think this is what your discussing here. That people should stick to thier guns and not leave a church simply because of minor disagreements. Realize I said minor. Major ones can not only rock a chuch to it's foundations, it can destroy it.

    God Bless

    The ONLY reason you should EVER leave a church is if it's over doctrine. if my pastor stood up and said "I am going to teach how works save you."
    I'd first pull him aside and have a strong talk with him, and if he still would not move on the topic, then I'd leave.

    But to leave because your toes get stepped on, and there is not enough activies for your kid, and there is not enough of a "social structure" is stupid, and they really need to examine themselves. (READ 2 Cor. 5:13)

    2 Corinthians 13

    5Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?

    CR I really agree with that statement. But, then again some people take that as a scapegoat too.

    They leave when they shouldn't simply cause it fits what they want to do. I'll admit a while back I had the same problem with my church and I was VERY human about it. But, I've lived and learned that if I don't agree with something, I should pray and speak to the pastor that, the person will come to the light and get themselves in order. Now remember i'm talking about the BIG things here not the small ones [​IMG]
