Here’s what I’ve learned. You cast vision for your mission and if people don’t sign up you move on. You move on. There are people that are going to die in the wilderness and there are people that are going to take the hill. That’s just how it is. Um. Too many guys waste too much time trying to move stiff-necked, stubborn, obstinate people. Um. I am all about blessed subtraction. There is a pile of dead bodies behind the Mars Hill bus (chuckle) and by God’s grace it’ll be a mountain by the time we’re done. You either get on the bus or you get run over by the bus. Those are the options, but the bus ain’t gonna’ stop. And, uh, I’m just a, I’m just a guy who is like, look, we love you, but this is what we’re doing. There’s a few kinda’ people. There’s people who get in the way of the bus. They gotta get run over. There are people who wanna’ take turns driving the bus. They gotta’ get thrown off (chuckle). ‘Cause they wanna’ go somewhere else. (Source)
It is frightening to think that these audio clips reflect the thoughts and hearts of trusted pastors. Submit quietly, for if you oppose the vision you will be violently removed.
