Problems Connecting

Christian organizations can benefit Christians by connecting on a larger scale, but there will be internal problems to be overcome.


For example, a Christian leader of an organization (today, these can be mainly physical with a building or entirely online) may not like the emphasis of another Christian organization and ignore it somewhat spitefully.

To help Christian organizations prepare for connecting on a larger scale, it is helpful to know in advance that a number of problems that will be encountered will not just come from anti-Christian sources on the outside. There will be internal problems as well. There are a number of reasons why Christian organizations may have trouble connecting, although these reasons come from human error and not Christian principles.


For example, a Christian leader of an organization (today, these can be mainly physical with a building or entirely online) may not like the emphasis of another Christian organization and ignore it somewhat spitefully. Also, a ministry may take pride in their large numbers, either in terms of online followers or parishioners, and look down on a smaller group. Other Christian groups may not want to join anyone because they only want to focus on their own needs.


Of course, there are legitimate reasons why not to join a Christian organization, such as finding out that the organization doesn’t believe in basic Christian beliefs that are shared by both Protestants and Catholics. This could include a purportedly Christian organization that doesn’t believe in an afterlife or that Jesus is God. However, as part of the process for successfully connecting, Christian organizations will need to separate these reasons from others that comes from human error, such as pride and condescension.
