Let's Be REal

John 8:1-11, Luke 5:27-32

5 stupid things the church needs to stop doing to make progress

  1. Quit being weird online
  2. Quit commenting on politics from the pulpit
  3. Quilt handling conflict so poorly
  4. Quit ranking sin selectively
  5. Quit judging outsiders

When making a difference…

  1. Run towards people, not away from them (v 3-5), Luke 5:27-32
  2. Care more about them than what they are doing (v 9)
  3. Give them what they need (v 11)

  5. Pray with people
