I want the reason people leave our church to be: It’s too hard.
The sermons make me think too much.
Those people think that prayer is the answer to everything!
They expect me to actually STUDY the Bible!
They make me think about others too much.
Those people are too interested in me and in my life.
Those people hold me too accountable.
Their standards are too rigid.
These should also be the reasons people join our church.
I am blessed to belong to a little church which meets this description well and I thank God often.
