Risk – our way of life

December 13, 2011 — 2 Comments

Risk is our friend. Little happens that is worthwhile that doesn’t involve taking a significant chance – one that might end in failure.

How often do you take a risk? Every time I bring up the topic of risk it seems almost everyone thinks they are big risk takers. Everyone? Really? If that were so the world would be a different place. I’m not talking about an itsy bitsy non-dangerous one that is hardly worth mentioning, but a big and hairy – something that needs to be spelled with a capital “R”?

You say you want to change the world… Maybe you pray that. Maybe you read books that explain how we can change the world. The word “missional” is all the rage these days which is another way to explain how we can change the world, but how many missional people are actually getting dirt under their fingernails in order to change the world versus just reading more books and thinking great thoughts about changing the world. How many actually smell like windshield washing liquid because they have been out squeegeeing cars?

We must work while it is light for darkness is coming when no one can work.

    Clueless brother…get in touch with Gods word stop misleading people with false teachings…such as the hVineyards false teachings and ignorance of Gods word. The tongue holds the power of life and death, stop destroying people and families with your false teachings. I will be on Willie Cunninghams show about the local churches and their misguided and false teaching of Gods word in Cincinnati.

    You know he’s not speaking the truth when his lips are moving!! Dont be mis-led buy this false teacher and propagator of spiritual deception…ie: seeker sensitive dung, servant evangelism dung, ashamed of the Gospel etc etc. The only thing worse than Islam is a stupid and ignorant Christian, among whom he is chief ! He doesn’t believe in the truth of Gods word! I’m speaking the truth in love and not ignoring the obvious. “Narrow is the path”…its much more narrow than you think! Ask my wife, oh wait..you cant..she’s with the Lord…because of your stupidity and false teachings!! I love you brother, sometimes the truth is shocking!! Its only too late to repent, when you cant ! The bible says…”don’t be stupid” !
