Hypocrisy at it's finest. While the precepts of this book are morally and biblically great, the author's own church did not get behind him on this project. They saw parts of the text as conflicts with the way he was leading them. Stating from the pulpit, "Follow me or Fire me." I'm sorry, I follow Christ and not a church, pastor, or author, no matter how you live your life. PG 33 of the book reads, "A power group tends to see itself as a collection of the ones in charge, those who are responsible for maintain the vision, order, and most of all, peace... So the ultimatum is given: "Either drop it or leave." In his own church this is even evident, by his refusal to acknowledge he has his own agenda, hence the reason there over half of the paid staff members are his immediate family. Following this example is difficult when there is an I am always right attitude.

Great concepts for the believer. Needs tips on how to recognize it in your own life. Brutally honest friends are rare because so many have built up walls, especially those who've been hurt and see it as an attack on them personally. This is especially true of those without accountability.

Confrontation goes both ways. Everyone must be willing to acknowledge their own failures. Everyone stumbles and falls, what matters is how you handle the situation. Everyone makes mistakes, but when it comes at the cost of another, we must remember THINK, is it truth, is it helpful or hurtful, is it inspiring or insulting, is it necessary, truly necessary, and is it kind? If not, then what, or rather who does it benefit. Confrontation is tricky, an avoidance of recognizing it in your own life is harmful to everyone. Avoidance is never acceptable. Always take a look at self before trying to confront.
