The People Formerly Known as “The Pastor” (TPFKATC Part 4)

kinnon —  April 5, 2007 — 3 Comments

Friend and fellow blogger, John Frye has hit the ball out of the park with his post, The People Formerly Known as “The Pastor”. Part Four of the series, The People Formerly Known as The Congregation.

There are thousands of us. You probably know many of us now as insurance sales agents, real estate agents, or doing anything besides “church.” We started with idealism about being voices for the kingdom of God and soon realized we became mutated forms of USAmerican business leaders. Even Jesus became a CEO. We traded immersion in the Bible with hyped-up seminars and books about good management, strong leadership and slick public relations. We learned that the size of our church parking lot mattered more than the size of your hearts for God.

Part one is here, part two here and part three here.

  1. Is there a link to this guy’s blog that I’m missing? Wondering if this is the whole of the entry.

    It rules and stuff, as is, but I’m wondering if there’s more.

  2. Geepers, Brant. I gotta tell you everything. You could’ve googled it, you know.

    Thanks for the catch…it is fixed.

  3. “Fixed”, but too late.

    I’ve moved on. New topics, new horizons.
