    There were a few questions that emerged in online conversation because of this article:

    1. How am I defining disciple/discipleship?
    2. Am I separating mission from discipleship? Aren’t they part and parcel the same thing?
    3. Why am I making this complicated? Can’t we just do what Jesus says and stop talking about this stuff?
    4. What should we do about it?

    The first and foremost reason is that most who claim to become saved do not get saved. Second I would discipleship fails because of trying to disciple with the teachings of men instead of the teachings of the bible. It just is not popular today to teach to live a Christ like life (a holy life). We love grace but we shun self denial and living above sin. We have a form of godliness but deny the power there of. 2Tim 3:2.
