Episode 184: Individual Stats Are Killing ChampionshipsIn this M&M episode, we confront the hard truths about disillusionment in the Church, spurred by the sins, flaws and missteps of its leaders. We must determine to hold to the importance of perseverance and commitment, likening the Christian journey to the arduous races, fights, and wars that soldiers and athletes endure for victory. Emphasizing Jesus' steadfast dedication to His church, despite its imperfections, we examine the counterproductive nature of abandoning our local spiritual families in the face of adversity. Our call is clear: to protect, reform, and improve our churches. We also must continue to extend grace to followers and leaders as we strive for reform, rather than walking away. Our individualism can become an idol if we fail to follow Christ in His mission for His bride.
