Messy Christianity – Amazing Love Invites an Accountable Community (2)

Gal. 6:1                                                                                                    September 24, 2017

Pastor Todd Harker

Scripture Emphasis:

Eccl. 4:9, 10 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”

Defined:  Celebrates our successes; Encourages through our defeats; Prays for our weaknesses; Restores through our fallings



  • When it is easier to leave a church than to deal with my sin, the church is in TROUBLE.
  • When the church refuses to restore an erring brother, the church is in ERROR.
  • When the church finds it easier to condemn than set a cast, the church is UNHEALTHY
  • When the church finds itself destroying the defeated instead of restoring the fallen, the church is _WORTHLESS.
