then the church is ineffective

When faith is privatized
and leadership is professionalized
and ministry is institutionalized
then the church becomes innefective

My friend Ruben Duran said this. I’m not sure if he heard it from someone else.

  • maybe “less effective”?

    There’s that thing Paul said about even if the gospel is preached for monetary gain, at least it is being preached (or something like that) which seems to say to me “Where there is proclamation, good or bad, the Word does it’s thing”

  • I didn’t say that the gospel becomes innefective.
