What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Granting a Moral Status?
Recently Bethlehem’s leadership team read together (orally) major portions of a document “Leadership and Church Size Dynamics,” by Tim Keller, in which he says, “Every church has a culture that goes with its size and which must be accepted. Most people tend to prefer a certain size culture, and unfortunately, many give their favorite size culture a moral status and treat other size categories as spiritually and morally inferior.”
