“Recovering” Part 5 – More of the Same

The old saying is that men never learn from history, with the addition that those that do learn from history are doomed to stand by and watch it repeat itself.  Mark Twain said that history doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.  Regardless of your opinion on the repeatability of history, as we already saw in […]

“Recovering” Part 4 – Whose Fault Is It?

In our first post we talked about why an entire generation of young people (or at least a representative majority) just isn’t interested in playing ball with the status quo.  Then we talked about the fundamental problems with “fundamental” churches – it’s not simply that they’re swapping their hymnals for bouncing balls on the projector […]
