Remember Newton’s first two laws of motion? Here’s a refresher…
- First law: Every object continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless compelled to change that state by external forces acted upon it.
- Second law: The acceleration a of a body is parallel and directly proportional to the net force F acting on the body, is in the direction of the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass m of the body.
In other words, things that are sitting still don’t move unless something pushes them, pulls them, or otherwise compels them by force… including churches.
I realize this post will most likely get me into a bit of trouble, but I’m going to state what I believe to be in keeping with the way God has designed things to work. Churches often don’t see much movement because they don’t see much movement. Churches who are unwilling to adapt will die. This is simply the law of the universe in which we live.
If that sounds radical, consider that God Himself tends to move and speak in different ways, in different ages, through different means. He has progressively revealed…Continue Reading
