  • Paralysis By Analysis

    Contributed by Jack Warford on Apr 13, 2001
    based on 104 ratings

    Many churches today have a paralysis brought on by analysis; they are so busy gathering and reporting numbers that their lambs and sheep are not being fed, and their flock is not being cared for. Resulting in spiritual paralysis.

    Why are we so fixated on counting numbers? Why do most pastors think of success as it relates to numbers? Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus tell us to count the sheep. He tells Peter if you love Me then you will feed my lambs, care for my sheep, and feed my sheep. Many churches today have a more

    Contributed by Randy Stephenson on Jul 8, 2012

    The people of Nazareth attended church that day when Jesus taught. But their focus and heart was not God like.

    Gospel Mark 6:1–13 What do you think a person mean when they say; "attending church is not meaningful to their lives today"? Obliviously there can be more than one meaning. But in today's reading that is one take on what happened. Mark 6:1 He went away from there and came to more

    based on 2 ratings

    You may be retired from secular work, but your work for God has just been enlarged!
