The PhxP and CC…
It has become more difficult for me to write these pieces,as I’ve moved on from the topic personally in more ways than one.
Back in the early days I thought we could change things…that we could help bring transparency and accountability to this group of churches and by doing so, create a template for doing so throughout Christendom.
I too am prone to occasional delusions of grandeur…
We’ve failed on every count and basically serve now as a conduit for information from a closed system and as a threat to those whose corruption may harm the flock.
Nobody wants to be on the front page of the Phoenix Preacher.
When I started this blog it was a scandal…this kind of reporting was considered trash…and so was I.
Today, it’s bloggers and alternative media that wag the tail of traditional media and break important stories in both the Christian and secular media.
Everyone has a voice now, whether they have something of value to say or not.
What we are missing now are voices that proclaim the goodness and majesty of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We ignore those parts of the church that are actually doing all the things that we think it ought.
We are now failing those who faithfully plow the Gospel ground and sow kingdom seeds.
This troubles me as much as all those scandals we’ve covered.
We’ll still do these articles when I feel it good to do so.
My hope is that we spend more time lifting up Jesus in any way we can…as He is the answer to all the issues and the model we need to follow.
We want to help you grow and rejoice in Him and help you navigate in faith through a fallen world.
Let us know what we can do to help you…
