Friendly Fire: Captains Who Shoot at the Crew as they LeaveJune 13, 2008
There is so much I could say about this video. The only thing I will say is this. As you watch what Ed Young says (if you don’t know Ed Young, he is the Pastor of one of the country’s largest churches) notice that his comparisons to the business world reveal how he feels other churches. Other churches are the competition. That is what is hurting so many with Friendly Fire: Pastors who grab hold of their congregation and take shots at them if they want to leave to serve God in a different setting. Instead of seeing a single unified church in Dallas with many flavors, Ed Young sees all other congregations as the competition. So he hoards his people and sees some who would plant churches as pirates.
