Since I asked Jesus to run my life in the fall of 1961, the lack of integrity within the American church has been a consistent heartache for me. In my process of transformation I have sought a community of believers who would encourage me to walk faithfully with Jesus. But rather than encouraging me to be faithful I have most often found an institution that has been seduced by the values of the prevailing culture. Along the way I have met many fellow seekers with the same dilemma. We are like a sunking ship, each with our own life preserver, drifting in the sea, hoping to either find land. We hunger and thirst for new harbors of safety, stability, meaning, purpose, and hope. In A Biblical Church With a Future I have presented an alternative vision for a paradigm of church, church structure, church leadership, and mission. Beware however, for I am a lame channel for articulating, let along understanding, the revelation of God's extravignat love in Jesus the Christ. My understanding, like everyone's, is dependent upon God's grace. I pray that as we experience God's grace together He will give us eyes to see land on the horizon.
