You will never experience viable organic, simple, participatory church …

If you fall prey to books, blogs and seminars promoting “how to” by those who “don’t do”.

Seriously, when it comes to “itinerant” authors like Frank Viola, Milt Rodriquez, Jon Zens and their buddies …

You can’t learn to be the church from those who consistently fail to make it work in their own lives, home towns and elsewhere.

Break free of their extraneous existential agendas, distain for the plenary authority of Scripture, cookie-cutter “deeper life” visions, post-modern “beyond” ideologies, and history of abuse, infidelity and cover up.

Because you’ll never learn to authentically be and do what we see in the New Testament …

Until you leave phony behind.
