Here’s another little helpful and challenging quote I read in Total Church.
At present the military and economic might of Western nations is struggling to counter the threat of international terrorism. It is proving difficult to defeat an enemy made up of local cells working toward a common vision with high autonomy but shared values (p. 109)
The parallel should be obvious. The problem with the Christian church is that it doesn’t exactly have shared values. May God by His grace and for His great glory change our sad state of affairs!
