Systems, institutions, and organizations tend to grow and change some along the way, but they rarely reverse course entirely or realize when they have become ineffective or even counterproductive. That’s partly because the participants don’t like to challenge their own system and outsiders criticism is easily dismissed.
We know people outside our churches have criticism, and we are aware of the tendency inside to continually give the benefit of the doubt. Seems like this is a bad recipe and begs the question, “How would we know if any or all particular church expressions were doing more harm than good tot he overall body?”
