As I observe the various church fights, either locally or nationally I notice that few people claim to be part of the problem and admit their need to be transformed.
The simple fact is that we are all part of the problem and need to be transformed. It is so easy to project on others the rightness we think that they need to have. The may need to hear the truth but we should hear the truth about ourselves before we starting throwing out accusations.
On most issues both sides are filled with fear, anger, bitterness and self-righteousness. Neither side admits they could be wrong. They might be right but energy brought from anger and fear is still not the right energy.
When we finally admit we might be wrong and that we are in need of transformation then we are not driven by the ego, at this point and only at this point do we begin to get a voice of critique because we realize that we are part of the problem and part of the solution and that only the power of God will transform us and this world.
Having enough votes never transformed anybody.
I could be wrong. I need to be transformed.
