“No church can truly be the church if its pastor or congregation are unwilling to speak hard truths to each other and to themselves.

To think of the pastorate as primarily a helping profession, and the church as only a therapeutic community whose main goal is to make us feel better about ourselves…

…instead of giving people what they actually need to be healthy…

…is a betrayal of the gospel and the church’s mission.”
