In this CPR episode, Pastors Mark Tiefel, Neal Radichel and Nathanael Mayhew all join together to discuss the topic of leaving a church. Why would a person leave a church? 1) They are running from a church because they don't like what it is saying. 2) They don't agree with what a church teaches. 3) They are having a personality conflict with others in the church that they are running from. When it comes to personality conflicts we are to forgive our brother and work toward resolving the issue. When it comes to doctrine we are to avoid the false teaching immediately for the love of the truth. God's Word is the standard, not our personalitites. God doesn't tell us to try and change false teachers, he tells us to avoid false teachers, because false teaching is destructive. We are speak the truth in love, Paul says (Ephesians 4:15). Either way we should carry out what God would have us do in love toward those around us. Join us for this valuable discussion.
