My Pastor's daughter (30 years old) asked me a pointed question. "Why do the good people leave?" Background: I have been placed in a bad situation in our church and my hand is forced. To avoid splitting a church, my family is opting to leave our ministry on correct terms and seek fellowship somewhere else. I know that I am not alone to know churches that have had fights over biblical issues where the people on the side of scripture are the ones that leave? Is this really biblical? Should Christians stand up for the fight or should we avoid divisive situations and leave the others to follow? So ... What is a pastor's perspective? "Why do the good people leave?"
