At the Religious News Service Scot McKnight writes a post about the issues with the Willow Creek model and why Christians should be concerned about it. This is a brief post to get people to read Scot’s post.
“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
Romans 15:7 NIV
The other day at the Religious News Service Scot McKnight wrote an article that was a response to Willow Creek looking for a new senior pastor. McKnight writes that given the persuasive model that Willow Creek became many Christians should be concerned about this model and its problems. I have been involved in a couple of different churches over the years that employed this model. Scott McKnight writes about how he defended Willow Creek in the past and raises concerns about the model today. This is gong to be a brief post but the goal of it is to get your to read the following article which you can access here. The longer the Willow Creek scandal drags on the more it becomes clear to me that Willow Creek was always about a business model and making money. Because in the end what it taught failed to work and was flawed.
