First I want to start off by thanking all of you that read yesterday. I found it quite interesting that the number of readers I had yesterday was almost 4 times that of what I normally have. Trying to come up with a reason why, I have decided it means one of two things. First, you are looking for someone who is actually being honest about the way they feel or second, you like conflict. Maybe not necessarily conflict between two people, but conflict as in something that is not resolved. Most movies, books, and stories all have it. It is what makes us read them. It doesn't really have a whole lot to do with what I wanted to post today, but I just thought it was interesting none the less.
What does a Christ centered church look like?
What is the pastor's job?
What is the role of music in the service?
What level of excellence should we expect from our pastors,
musicians, and others in leadership roles?
What should we expect of those who attend a church regularly?
Where did these opinions come from?
Are any of these thoughts biblical?
Most of these questions can easily turn legalistic and I'm sure many discussions have been had over them in the past, but again, I would just like to ask that you look inside yourself and honestly answer the questions based on what you believe in your heart, not what you say you believe. I say that because I know I have said I believed things in the past, but when I dug into my heart I found that my words and actions didn't line up.
Thank you in advance for your responses. I look forward to hearing from you.
