[featured_image]It seems like Christians are always wanting to fix the church and make the church better. I’m not convinced that the church is all that God designed her to be yet, however, I’m confident that Jesus is still at work as He said He would – “I will build My church.”

The next time you are tempted to just rip on the church and its problems, consider this wise counsel from Neil Cole (Organic Church):

“Don’t bash the bride no matter how ugly she looks to you. If you start attacking the bride, sooner or later you’re going to have to take on the Groom, and I don’t think you want that!” (p. 139)
