Seriously. How could think for one second that the issue of compromise is an unworthy topic of conversation to discuss in an open format? What are you waiting for: some pastor to screw up so bad it taints the whole of Christendom? For church to get a bad name, or be called irrelevant because they won’t talk about the gritty things in life? Really, what’s the hold up?
You’re scared. So what! We get it; everyone does. No one wants to see the skeletons come out of the closet. Think about it: what if someones garbage is seriously nasty; who wants to deal with that? No one does, but it doesn’t mean it should not be dealt with.
The longer churches sweep the dirt under the rug, the longer culture continues to be turned off to the message of hope we should be offering. Can you honestly say you really want that?
Do you need help figuring all this out and how you can best address this with your congregation? If so, we are here to help. That’s what we’re all about. We don’t want to point fingers at any one specific church, but we do want to bring this out into the open in an uncompromising manner.
