Rick Warren tweeted this in response to Rob Bell leaving his church:
Speaking tours feed the ego=All applause&no responsibility.It’s an unreal world. A church gives accountability& validity
Someone then asked him, “Do u think well-known pastors who leave their churches have more or less impact?” His response:
Always less.No base 4credibility
I think there is some good truth to this. I am not opposed to itinerant ministries or anything of the sort, but there is no “institution” on earth promised God’s blessings other than the church and the accountability factor cannot truly be replicated anywhere else.
What say you?
