Is everyone else REALLY wrong?

What do you do when you are in the minority of thought? What would you do if ALL your staff members were opposed to the direction you, the leader, was planning to go?

Servant leaders are called to serve the people who work for/with them. My guess would be that if you have made a decision that goes against all your staff members that there is a good potential that you are in the wrong.

What do you do when a leader refuses to hear counsel from the people they hired and trust to help them? In one case, the entire staff resigned and left. At that point I would probably drop to my knees and say something like, "Dear God, where have I gone wrong?"

I would love to hear your ideas. Be polite and respectful please.

Tye out.

Good Friday is good

Good Friday and Easter is this week and here at New Covenant Bible Church we are gearing up for a great service where MANY people will come, many of them who will not attend any other service besides Christmas.

As my regular readers would know (all 3 of you with the same last name as me), I have been "debating" with some "Reason" people (see prior posts) on a YouTube channel. Why do I do this? Why do I take precious time that could be spent in other ways to carry on a conversation with people who have been quite rude and unkind to me?

Simple. I care. In all their science and logic they miss the obvious due to their personal bias that there is not and cannot be an all supreme being. I also understand that I cannot argue with them long enough to make believers out of them. Only God can do that.

It takes faith. The evidence for the Christian faith is overwhelming.

So I say this, and insist in the Lord, that you no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding, being alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their hearts. Ephesians 4:17-18 NET

Tye out.

Be gracious

(This is a follow up to my previous post, I love atheists/evolutionists)

I received the following response to some of my posts on a YouTube video featuring Adam Savage (Mythbusters) at a "Reason Rally." (Click here for the video.)

On another channel, I saw comments you made about a speech by Adam Savage. It is always encouraging to see someone stand up for truth & reason as you did. I have subscribed to your channel. By the way, you really kept your cool and wer
e gracious. Good example!

As I mentioned in my prior post, I am not always "cool and gracious" when talking to people who I disagree with so you can imagine how exciting it was for me to get this email.

Many people think of Christians as "haters," and rightfully so. On the other hand, I am trying to make a difference one person at a time to put this "myth" in the BUSTED category.

I hope you will join me.

I love atheists/evolutionists

Adam Savage (Mythbusters) spoke at a "Reason Rally" last week and the video was posted on YouTube. There is profanity in case you are sensitive about that:

I commented on the video asking questions about the theory of evolution. I also made comments about Adam's assertion that we are love is the answer because I thought some of his comments were condescending and judgmental. Then, people who answered my comments were the same and even called me names.

This made me think of how Christ-followers treat those who we disagree with. Being judgmental, authoritarian, and condescending will never win anyone.

It repelled me.

Adam Savage said it, but God said it first. "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Do it.
