It Happened to Me
If you’ve been around the church world very long, you probably can empathize with the guy who created a bumper sticker for his car:
Sometimes we’re helpless bystanders when a church split happens, but at other times we shoulder some of the blame. Either way…
Church Splits HURT!
Countless millions of believers around the world have had their faith tested, or even shattered, by conflicts within the church. Relationships often are torn, even between family members and best friends. When simplistic answers are proven inadequate, it’s tempting for unforgiveness, bitterness and disillusionment to set in.
Sadly, I consider myself one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject of church splits. While that’s not really something to boast about, I just wanted you know I’ve experienced what I’m describing—and I’ve lived to tell about it!
Yes, in case you were wondering, there IS life after a church split. The good news is that instead of remaining permanently crippled by a split…
You not only can survive, but you can THRIVE!
Let me be clear: Just as God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16), He also hates discord among His people (Proverbs 6:16-19). He delights when His people “live together in unity,” for that’s where He can pour out His grace and blessings (Psalm 133:1-3 NIV).
Stay with me in the following pages, and we’ll journey together to a place of hope and restoration. Whether you fear a coming church split…are in the middle of one…or are trying to regain your spiritual equilibrium after a split has left you devastated…
This book is for you!
