Don’t Bite the Shepherd

On one side you have the pastors and church leaders (the shepherds), and on the other you have the church body (the sheep). For decades (if not centuries) there has always been a tension between these 2 sides of the coin, which results in church splits, hurt relationships, broken testimonies, people being turned away from and turned off of the church, and a whole lot more. Each side of the coin seems to think they ARE the coin not realizing that they are but one side of the same coin....that there is another side.

Angry Christian: So Much for that Whole “Truth in Love” Thing

I've always struggled a bit with my temper. OK...scratch that...I have always struggled with getting angry ENTIRELY too quickly.
