Sometimes you hear a grain of truth–even a remarkable grain of truth–from the most unlikely sources. Of course, those unlikely sources seldom intend to speak the real truth that they speak. Like when Paul Krugman said on This Week: “If Obama called for endorsing motherhood, Republicans in the House would oppose it.” You know, he’s probably right…but not correct for the reasons he thinks.

As Americans, we enter the church with nearly overpowering individualistic inclinations. We come with and cling to expectations and demands that are centered on ourselves. We want people to talk to us but we are unwilling to talk to strangers. We have a myriad of personal preferences that we impose on the church about worship styles, music, and the like. We grade the pastor on whether or not he has met our needs through his sermon. And we certainly aren’t interested in anyone getting in our business! We don’t humbly submit to one another. We argue and divide over inconsequential issues.
