I always wonder what the church is suppose to do when you have a wolf or bully?
The Bible actually has very clear instruction but most people don’t like to follow them. In reality, most people, even leaders and especially at Asian churches, people keep quiet and hope the guy would leave or die naturally.
I have heard from different people that that’s what a lot of Chinese church would do. They might have a powerful person, a powerful bully, someone who likes to be the boss. Most people don’t like the person but they would not say anything or object the person. People of the congregation might talk about him in small group setting but nobody would confront the person with his problem. They would just wait for that guy to go away.
I find that to be a great waste of time. Bad leaders can do very harmful things at the church yet people just tolerate it with no opposition. I find it very ridiculous and selfish behaviour. Nobody want to speak up because nobody want to take risk. If you really care about that person you would talk to him about the problem, but no, everybody just keep quiet, including the head deacon, all the leaders and deacons who should. That’s just irresponsibility. That’s cowardliness.
