“Much of the modern church is ashamed to mention such countercultural topics as the differing roles of the sexes, disciplining wayward believers for disobedience, and extramarital sex or homosexuality being sins. Yet the Scripture unequivocally teaches these doctrines, and our shame of God’s Word effectively neuters our ministry from the world.” from “The Discipline of Delusion: How Secular Ideas Became the New Idolatry” by Jerry Bangert

Thoughts from the Diary of a Desperate Man by Walter A Henrichsen (“Walt”)
“The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:8
How do you control the wind? Jesus says that the work of the Holy Spirit is analogous to the wind; you hear and see its effects, but cannot tell its origin or destination.
How often you would like to reach inside another and alter their perception of reality. You say to yourself, ‘Why can they not understand this simple message of redemption?” But they cannot, and you cannot force it. Unless the ‘Wind” has His way, they remain blind and dead in their sin.
Man is never more insecure than when he cannot create, measure, and control. The work of man can be created, measured, and controlled, but the work of God cannot. If you try you will inevitably become abusive in your interpersonal relationships, trying to force people into meeting your expectations so that you can accomplish your objectives. The work of God requires a walk of faith. When you apply the template of your business on your church, calling your pastor to the same business techniques you use in the marketplace, you pressure him into trying to do the impossible. The cause of Christ is best served when you allow God to create, measure, and control, and you give yourself, by faith, to the task of investing in the lives of others. Let God do with your investment what He wants.
