On the national political landscape everyone is making up new rules as they go along to control Donald Trump and keep him out of the White House. Local politics are no different. After a recent election the old guard, in an attempt to control a controversial newly elected representative, made up a few new rules for him to abide by. Even in the church, leaders find it easier to write new rules and set policy, than to help believers mature. The Pharisees were insulted when Jesus exposed a similar practice. Jesus replied, “And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them” (Luke 11:46 NIV).
