Supporting Small Churches Does Not Mean Bashing Big Churches
When we bash churches for becoming big, we fail to recognize the power of the gospel to draw people to Jesus, in both large and small crowds.
Bashing a church for its size, big or small, says more about the pettiness of the basher than it says about the church they’re bashing.

Each person’s church experience should stand on its own, without bashing an entire group.

So, from now on, when you read or hear something from me about the value of small churches, don’t read a megachurch bash into the subtext. Because it doesn’t exist.

Bashing a church for its size, big or small, says more about the pettiness of the basher than it says about the church they’re bashing.

The next time anyone wants to bash any church for how many or few attend it, you can count me out. I hope I can count you out, too.
