The times they are a changing.

From time to time have read your posts. From time to time have disagreed with your posts. This is not one of those times. Guess the times are truly changing.

In the absences of real churchmanship, it looks like everyone will have to deal with this denominational balkanization by thoughtful support of various competing interests.

May God bless you and anyone else of whatever politic who share a heart for evangelism and a desire to meet human needs with the unsearchable riches of the gospel of Christ. May all who follow Christ join in supporting the work that you lead as well as that of others who God is using to win lost men and women to Christ and to shape our hearts, our homes, our nation according to His love, mercy and grace.

Time for the people in the pews to act

Time has run out for administers, bishops and all the over-governing boards to have any meaningful input. They have clearly shown that they are way out of touch with the regular church members, who actually fund them. Time to cut them off, and as the writer of this article stated, "be intentional with where you want your $ to go and fund where the Lord is leading you." Anything other than splitting will run off the masses, we no longer have ANY confidence with those who believe they are in charge or those numerous boards that are virtually useless except to their own minds.

I agree, but

You diminished your argument when you touted the makeup of your ministry. Why must you divide your students into categories? Aren't we all followers of Christ, and isn't that the only descriptor we need? Why must we be divided like that?

I agree

The time to split amicably as possible is long overdue. The institutionalists, including Bishops, general agency bureaucrats and “approved” seminary administrators and professors, will fight an amicable division tooth and nail because of their fears. They fear the loss of money and power. Put your faith in God. All things are possible through Him.
