The 7 Deadly Words of the Church

The late Dallas Willard, prominent Christian philosopher and author, wrote that the seven deadly words of The Church are “We’ve never done it that way before.” As I continue to teach through the Book of Acts I’m reminded of this quote. At the end of chapter 9 and beyond, God expands the ministry of the early Church in ways that shakes up the status quo. The expansion caused great controversy and debate among many. God is still doing that today and yes, it still causes controversy and debate today. Imagine if we threw off that constricting mindset in how we approach the concept of Church and ministry today.  How might the church be different without those seven words? Join me each Sunday at Hus Church 9:30 am to 10:45 am as we learn how God expanded the ministry of early Church and how God might expand the ministry of the Church today, our Church, Hus Church.
