The Shackled Church

Spiritual Movements usually burst forth at the grass roots level and usually stop within the limitations of the corporate or institutional level. It soon becomes a cage we make for ourselves.

Here are some of the obstacles that limit the average Church from succeeding at the grass roots level.

  • Structural and staff maintenance costs and debt
  • Institutional corporate and legal limitations
  • Higher Fuel and food prices and lower wages
  • Hierarchical Control
  • Loss of Integrity
  • More focus on assimilation (inside the walls) vs transformation (outside the walls)
  • Competition – Did I mention Control?
