Exclusivity

Mitch just hit on the major weak spot of Cru bible studies. They aren’t approachable. He just mentioned that he was inviting people to the bible study, not understanding that it’s not the same as last year where anyone could come. This is a good thing when you look at the level of study possible with guys who are all committed and somewhat experienced learners, but the weakness shows through when we see how the exclusivity of the study (supposedly necessary to build community and depth) discourages the use of the Body of Christ to minister to those who don’t know Jesus or may be new infants in their faith. whoa. That’s intense. Am I suggesting that all studies are equally accessible to promote the invitation of others to participate in some amazing Christian fellowship? I think I am.
