Pastor/author Mark Atteberry does a fine job of tackling the dumbest things Christians do. His book is humorous as well as hard-hitting, and completely practical.
The chapter titles are as follows:
Slinging Mud on the Bride of Christ
Winning People to the Church Rather Than to the Lord
Living Below the Level of Our Beliefs
Speaking Above the Level of Our Knowledge
Hopping From Church to Church
Fighting Among Ourselves
Missing Golden Opportunities
Settling for Mediocrity
Allowing Wolves to Live Among the Sheep
Accepting the Unacceptable
One of my favorite quotes is the following:
Have we become so obsessed with being seeker-friendly that we're reluctant to offer the whole counsel of God? (55)
I'm afraid that's dangerously true in many churches today. I recommend The 10 Dumbest Things Christians Do
(the book, not the things themselves), especially for anyone involved in church leadership.
