"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

Grace under Fire 55: The Cost

UPDATE: This man has been reinstated as a leader of the life group book study, Crazy Love.

     A little over one week ago Watchmen of Grace released to everyone in our church the list of those who have signed to retain the current Statement of Faith. The proposed changes will not even be voted on until February 5 and the current Statement of Faith is still in effect, but the leadership is already punishing those who do not support them.
     The first casualty so far is a young husbamd and father who was scheduled to lead a Life Group. He was told he won't be allowed to lead the group after all because his name is on "that list."
     If any of you are members of Grace Brethren Church and are considering adding your name(s) to the statement supporting our current Statement of Faith, you may want to count the cost for doing so. The leadership will not like you and will not take kindly to your thwarting their agenda.
