I have been on a roll with my last few commentaries. If my inbox is any indication then there are a lot of folks who have had it up to their ears with “church.”
It has been invigorating, and humbling, to know that I have been able to articulate what so many others are feeling.
Writing a weekly commentary makes one feel very vulnerable. The number of folks who “lie in the weeds” ready to pounce on any miss-application of Scripture could cause one to be a bit apprehensive in expressing one’s views.
But I just write what I feel…not sure if it is the Holy Spirit or my gut…but I do the best to write it straight-forward, despite the assault that usually follows.
They accuse me of “church bashing,” of “sowing discord” in the body, and of criticizing “God’s anointed.” (I love to ask them if it is possible to be anointed to irritate the anointed. It stumps them every time.)
Leadership is most demonstrated by moving forward in the face of adversity. It is compromise and retreat that has put the American Church in the position it is in. Our tepid-leadership has not been up to the task. We have many “managers,” but not many “leaders.” Most pastors are more perplexed with “wild-fire” Christians than they are with the destructive exploits of the Evil One.
I wish you could read my emails. You wouldn’t believe some of the antics pastors have pulled on out-spoken Christians. They love to run off the non-compliant, calling them “goats,” while doing all they can to domesticate their compliant sheep.
Your affirmation of my diagnosis of the cause and effect of spiritual-lethargy has encouraged me to move forward.
I won’t sit silently and wait for others. It is time to get your butt into the game.
Over a decade ago I started Pass The Salt Ministries. A quick check of my website would show that “PASS THE SALT is committed to bringing together the body of Christ across denominational, racial, and economical borders to demonstrate to America the power of Biblical unity. Our vision is to unite, organize, and mobilize the Army of God to be SALT and Light as stated in MATTHEW 5:13.” That mission statement is over a decade old. I have never wavered in my hunt for Godly Men.
When I first started I was long on zeal and short on wisdom. I am a lot wiser today, and I have the battle scars to prove it. But it is funny, you know. Most of my wounding has come from “friendly-fire.” It is not the god-haters that have crippled my efforts, but the “wounds of a friend.” Jesus warned us, “Your enemies shall be those of your own household.” Amen to that……
