Beyond FARMStrong
I've started posting again on the Asbury Seminary blog site and will try and sustain that over the coming months. It will be a different kind of posting than we see on FARMStrong.

We got started with that yesterday with THIS ONE about how broken people often hide behind successful ministry. It is a fascinating study which I excerpted on the seminary blog with a link to the full story. Would be worth your read.

Oh My! That is some specific research...makes me think of several colleagues who are "successful"....they fit the description to a T. Heads up, personal vulnerability coming....
I don't see my self as "successul" as judged by huge membership, etc, so does that mean I don't have the characteristics or wounding mentioned in the Ashland research.
How would one process this, JD, fount of wisdom? This has my head in a knot.

Interesting insights! In regards to the first type, I have also noticed that their followers are people who often lack a sense of self and are drawn to the appearance of the strong motivated personality. So whatever the pastor says is right, consequentially pastors are not creating healthy followers of Christ.
