All in Church Transition

One of the profound difficulties I have with modern evangelicalism, in which I include most pentecostal and charismatic churches, is its humanistic orientation. There is a subtle shift in the narrative which puts me at the center of the story, at worst relegating God to the periphery and at best giving him a supporting role in the drama that is my life.

At the end of the year, I will allow my credentials with the Assemblies of God to lapse.

The tendency I have as an Enneagram Five is to comprehensively demonstrate the absolute logic and complete coherence in the decisions I make, especially if there’s a chance that decision would be called into question. So when it comes to justifying a big change like a switch from one denomination to another, I’m tempted to do just that.
