Our models of God can get in the way. I suggest that no church is perfect — and I read enough Orthodox laymen to know that none of them have that delusion. The question now is not what the formal theology of the church says, but what the informal theology does. The error is not that no churches have the full truth: the error is that many churches now preach frank error, for they are bowing to the spirit of this age...
This is why I quote from any man or woman who seeks God and blogs and speaks wisdom. We need to back each other. The spirit of the world hates us all. A fair amount of our denominational disputation is because we are not mature and we are picking fights.
I would rather pray for revival, and rejoice if it comes through a group who make me extremely uncomfortable, rather than there be no revival at all. For it is not Paul or Apollos who bring the growth, but God.
