Today's Scripture: "Two tenons shall be in each board for binding one to another. Thus you shall make for all the boards of the tabernacle." Ex 26:17
5732. Agreement is fine—if you agree. JG
This past week saw the ruling American political party fail to agree on a matter of national importance. This gave the political party on the other side of the aisle reason to be celebrate. The losers, however, were the American people. But from this point I wouldn't expect it to be much better. As for the other side, it's been proven that they will agree to whatever is proposed by one of their own. So it seems one party can't run the country and the other side shouldn't rule the country. Some call this a balance of power, but I call it a black hole. This is where citizens are sucked into insignificance by representatives unwilling to compromise for the good.
It's impossible to be part of a group and be expected to agree with everything said. That is true of church even more than the government. The government tries to apply a balance of power to protect wrong actions, but in a church the voice of one man often speaks for the group and sometimes without competent elder accountability. For those disagreeing with a one person mandate, anyone can leave if they don't endorse and approve questionable action from the leadership. How many tee-shirts of mine would you like to see?
If I'm blindly obedient, God, it's to You.
