They are not our enemies..........

As I read the Memphis Declaration I was struck by the humility of the document. Wade Burleson was very transparent as he made the Declaration personal. I am concerned that churches have become territorial. I don't care if a church is denominational or non-demination some churches feel they have been given a territory that is theirs only. Some feel it is like the business world. IBM gives it's salespeople protected territories to make sales in. Some churches feel just because they are in a community they have a protected territory for their church. This is a lie from hell! God doesn't give out territories. When we sent out postcards to invite people to our church in Georgia, I had dozens of "CHURCH POLICE" call up to voice their displeasure that we were in their territory. If people aren't going to their church now, then they probably are not ever going to go. Other like minded churches are not our enemies!!!!! In fact, they are our partners to win our communities for Christ. When we get that into our heads, then I think God will bring revival not just in our individual churches but in our nation and the world.

Dear Kevin,

I'm okay with this, just as long as you don't send a card to anyone in MY zip code.

Love in Christ,
