In this post, I’m using the term “normal” with the following definition: “Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.”
So, thinking about that definition, look at the church in your area. What is “normal” among the church?
Here are a few of his “convictions”:
I am convinced that the house church rather than the sanctuary church was the New Testament norm.
I am convinced of the normacy of tentmaking leadership.
I am convinced that the church exists in part to equip all of its members for ministry.
I am convinced that the leadership of the church should be shared for the health of the congregation.
There are many more, so please read his post.
But, my concern is that even if someone might agree with one or two of these “norms,” it is clear that the church today rarely resembles the church as described in the NT. That’s a problem.
