Feeling convicted about my "Dear 21st Century Church" post. Seems like I either didn't explain myself very well or there was something bitter running through the entire thing experience that leached through. In spite of three edits, I didn't see it. Still not sure what it is.
I don't want to offend or be a stumbling block. I took the post down.
And then I read this today, from Perry Noble's blog, which is far more powerful than anything I could ever dream up to say about any other church experience.
"One of the things that I always teach here at NewSpring Church is that we do not have the corner on the market when it comes to a movement of God. We aren’t doing church “the right way.” We aren’t doing church a better way. We are doing church the way God called us to do it…and if another church is doing what God has called them to do and people are being reached, lives are being changed, sin is being repented of, the excluded are being included, teenagers are discovering their potential in Christ, marriages are being restored and children are learning about Jesus and so on…who in the world would want to criticize that? (Answer - satan…just in case you were curious!)" - Perry Noble
Let's just leave it at that, shall we?
