I read a quote the other day from a book I am reading The Convergent Church by Mark Liederbach and Alvin Reid. The quote said, “too often discipleship models are regulated to classroom teachings in Sunday school settings and seminary classrooms with knowledge based curricula instead of life-on-life, obedience based discipleship.” They go on to say, “The emphasis on orthodoxy (right teaching) has led to the unfortunate neglect of orthopraxy (right living).” Liederbach and Reid are on to something in this book. They are pointing to the lack of discipleship in the American Church. I know that they, nor I am the first to point this out. Many books, blogs, and sermons will be written about how to fix the problem. Yet, one chord they hit on is the fact that for so long we have equated discipleship with classroom learning. We have taught that if a person can acquire more knowledge about God then that makes him a true disciple. This could not be further from the truth.
