The Danger of “If Just One Person…”
We’ve all been in a church business meeting when someone has said it. It’s the goto line to justify ministry expenditures, and according to Scott Cochrane, it is a dangerous lie. The line? “If just one person…” You may have heard it used like this: If just one person takes a big step towards God… If just one person starts reading the Bible regularly… If just one person invites someone far from God into their home… Scott pushes back saying that if just one person is doing this… it’s probably a waste of resources. In this edition of Ministry Briefing we discuss Scott’s thoughts, and whether there is a better way to use those funds. How do YOU approach “just one” thinking?
