There is so much to learn from the historical evils of Communism, yet you won’t find it taught in public schools. They are too busy teaching that if we just keep trying then it will work.
But if people would at least watch what is going on in Europe they could see where the U.S. is headed. Their economies are cratering under their socialistic policies, especially in the area of health care.
Britain is waking up to the effects of their complacency as their freedoms erode more and more. When they banned handguns, the government controlled the law-abiding people but not the criminals. Go figure. A crime victim in an isolated location is in jail for using a gun to protect himself while the criminal is already out of jail. This is insane. Will we continue to make the same mistakes?
You believe the bloated wastefulness of companies like AIG should be punished by putting them under the control of the bloated wastefulness of the buffoons in Congress.
You dislike dealing with large, inefficient, uncaring government bureaucracies like the DMV or the IRS, but hope Obama will give you “free” healthcare provided by a large, inefficient, uncaring government bureaucracy.
The first rule of business is “The customer is always right”; the first message of the Gospel is “all have sinned”. In business you tailor your product to meet the customers’ needs; the “product” of the church is God. Or put it this way: Business never asks customers to submit to their product.
What seemed like a good idea may not have been. It just may be that, in our aim to “redeem the culture”, we sold out the Gospel.
I do think many of the things that make one successful in business will help make churches successful: Clear communications, knowing how to manage people, organization skills, efficiency, etc. There is no excuse to run a church in a sloppy manner. We should be good stewards of everything God gives us. But we can’t change the message to win people over.
