Five Reasons NOT to Leave a Church
While there are (rare) times to move from one church to another, I want to share five reasons NOT to leave: 1. When you don't fit in. 2. When it's easier for you to connect with God elsewhere. 3. The leaders aren't doing things the way most people think they should. 4. When another church has better programs for you and your family. 5. When God tells you to.
From Series: "Five Reasons NOT to Leave a Church"
Unity around the mission of the church is something Satan cannot risk. The moment people lock arms, take their positions and unify with the Great Commission in front of them, it's over. He's done. A spirit of independence is convincing Christians that it's time to take control of their lives and forsake the call to gather under leaders within the structure of the church. We must repent, and we must return to position and get ready to move as the alarm sounds. This teaching is definitely a hot topic and sure to result in a variety of reactions. It is based on a Charisma Magazine article by John that was released today.
