Political Correctness vs. Participatory Church (2 PCs)

Political correctness tries to intimidate and to coerce people to accept its views on social issues.  Participatory church encourages people to follow their conscience and to obey the voice of God.

Political correctness tries to make people say things that they don’t sincerely believe.  Participatory church releases people to hear directly from God and to share what God has put on their heart.

Political correctness marginalizes and/or rejects people who don’t agree with its positions.  Participatory church reaches out to and loves people whether they agree with them or not.

There are 50-something “one another” commandments in the New Testament. Participatory church provides an open, loving, interactive environment were Christ-followers are free to obey those commandments and to openly minister to one another as led by the Spirit.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
