In Search of Organic Church Life

I am aware that the majority of the church world is in La-La Land and that this article is going to be understood by a very small portion of the Christian population. There is still a need to caution God’s people.

Nonetheless, I salute all my brothers...

Gods Redemptive Grace is not His Approval of Spiritual Dysfunction by Steve Crosby

God is magnificently redemptive. None of us would have any hope if that were not the case. Yet we must not confuse His redemption for His approval. Gods redemptive grace is not His approval of spiritual dysfunction.  Many people are abiding in or gather in dysfunction, this is not the kingdom Jesus died for.

Leaving the Pew to Stand upon the Mountain (Prophetic Revelation) by Kriston Couchey

Dangling from the edge of the cliff, I struggled once again to pull myself up unto the level plain before me which capped the top of the mountain. At least one hundred times in the last 10 years I had come to this same place in my climb only to lose my grip and fall back down with bumps and bruises to a ledge far below the cloud line. Many times I had passed above the clouds in my journey into a place of clear vision only to slip and...
