8 Clues You Are in a Controlling Church

"Ministry of Control" by nakedpastor David Hayward 8 Clues You are in a Controlling Church
  1. Power is not shared.
  2. Your needs and desires are denied.
  3. If you don't comply you will be ignored or worse.
  4. Your discontent with the church is your fault.
  5. Little encouragement but lots of put downs (called constructive criticism).
  6. Doubts and questions are interpreted as betrayal.
  7. Shame is used to keep you in line.
  8. Your life feels micromanaged by the church.
Is this your experience? I know I've experienced it. I also know that as a pastor I was guilty of inflicting some of these. I've learned a lot! This is something we talk a lot about at The Lasting Supper! Help yourself! My art is 35% OFF with code 'nakedpastordeal'. SHOP NOW!
