Question: What Kind Of Grade Would You Receive If Your Current Church Evaluate You Based On Their Records?
Evaluations are not evil things in themselves, shoot, a good evaluation process can help a person grow and develop. But, when the church world does it, it can take on a whole different meaning. The above pic and the below comment was posted in one of my Facebook groups:
Here is a letter of transfer of membership of an individual (someone I know) of a particular congregation. Here you will see directly how people are valued by what they give and also look at the inconsistency with (attendance and participation) and giving and (leadership and participation). Certain parts are hidden for identification sake. Thoughts. Lol! He started to question the system and how it treated people and for his last three months gave the money he called 'tithe' to the needy in the church. He has never missed tithing for the 12 years he's been there and look at evaluation. He now with a different group of believers who worship together and has stopped tithing etc. He is now more liberated to work for God.
What are your thoughts about church report cards? What do you think about this member evaluation score, considering this person has been a member of this church since 2004?
