This is a discernment exercise for people who read this blog. Your homework assignment is to study Restoration Church’s website and analyze it. Would you go to this church? Or would you stay away? Please discuss below.
“Finding good players is easy. Getting them to play as a team is another story.”
“I can’t afford to be a member of a golf course.”
Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
Acts 17:11 NIV
I do want to encourage people to think for themselves, ask questions and learn how to practice discernment. At this blog I have written two posts about looking for a church and membership covenant issues. I would encourage you to read those as you analyze Restoration Church in northwest Washington, D.C. This church I believe is non-denominational but I will let you decide. Restoration Church is led by Joey Craft. There are a couple of reasons why I like to do this exercise. One is that as this blog grows more people get involved and it challenges and gets them to think. Second a post is created that will tag the church name and be a resource for people considering this church. There is a lot of bad stuff out there on all sides of the theological spectrum. This allows those of us who are Bereans to shine and ask questions.
Here is your homework. Analyze this website and look at this church. Would you attend here? What red flags or aspects do you find encouraging about Restoration Church? Would you recommend this to a family member? Or a friend? Would you invite someone to attend this church? After a few days I will start to weigh in on the comments below. Thanks guys and know that I love you! 🙂
