“Our ministry reached X number of people for Christ this year!” That’s wonderful. Really! And, say, if we find out your ministry wasted $10 million, didn’t follow through on agreements, manipulated people to get donations, featured abusive, ego-driven leadership, reached settlements in multiple harassment lawsuits, and ramrodded its agenda over other ministries, we might guess what you’ll say: “But our ministry reached X number of people for Christ this year!” Some people will buy this.…comments

I think about tucking them in…comments

Quit signing them up for a bunch of garbage and racing them around everywhere, and then griping about how you “just don’t have any time anymore to eat…comments
