9 changes we must make or die

…of another quote by Deming; “Survival is not mandatory.” God promised that the gates of Hell would not stand against the Church; this implies that the Church is on the offensive. If we simply recover what the Scripture actually says, and do what it says, there is a tremendous amount of upside.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

”_______…or die” doesn’t scare me any more. Some churches need to die, and Christ is the life of every other church that’s not dead. He will determine when they die, not us. I attempted to make all the right changes where I used to be a pastor in the church still died. Jesus is Lord over his church not the pastors or their methods.

We had a business meeting at my church last week, and the only point I made was that the only thing we can do - and are told to do - is remain faithful. The rest of it is up to God.

Appreciated your post, WilliamD. Good to see you around here again.
