Do you have any voices of truth in your life? Is there someone, anyone who can be brutally honest with you about you? Is the only thing more frightening than listening to a voice of truth, being one? If there is a responsibility of the church, it is to confront, to hold us accountable, to be that voice of truth. But what happens if she doesnt, or worse, her leaders desire popularity more than our purity? Killing the Church is not to be seen as an attack against the Church, no more than discipline is an attack against a child. The reality is that without correction, little can be done to keep child or Church on course. And for correction to be effective, it first requires confrontation.
Killing the church is a must read for all Christians, especially those in leadership roles. Confrontation is extremely important and this book address how to appropriately handle it and the dangers of not handling it correctly. Very good read!
Killing the church
Very helpful with extensive references to shed light on the author's position of the need for greater accountability in the body of Christ.
The point about the role of denominations as a means of clarifying issues of faith needs a greater hearing in today's world.
