Points of revolution

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

From AlanCreech.com (September 8 post, found through Waving or Drowning?):

These "others" are a matter of Revolution to me and I will NOT shut up about them. And on these matters, which I view as very important, I tend to shed care of what others think. I do not feel I can afford to be quiet in these areas – the Church cannot afford for many of us to be quiet in these areas. Maybe I should try to bullet point a few of them – if I go off on all of them, this will be the never-ending blog post, so just bullets… Points of Revolution > hierarchical leadership > pulpit/pew Sunday only large meetings > cold-call revivalist evangelism > quick-fix altar ministry > full-time professional pastorate > programmed, departmentalized "ministry" > tight, dogmatic faith statements > extra-biblical life rules > local ecclesiastical isolationism > "the church" programmatically trying to spiritually form children
