This past Sunday at our church it was reported that someone got up and left claiming to never be back. The bottom line reason was that “things were just getting out of hand.” Know what tipped her over the proverbial edge? We actually clapped a little louder during the song “Shout Hallelujah.” I’m sorry, but that doesn’t even show up on the radar of importance from the perspective of scripture and especially in light of persecution.
