I was listening to Richard Lewis, the spokesman from the Destiny Church, talk on the radio this morning.  He was saying that they have a social arm that rivals Presbyterian Support in scale.  A bit of a misleading comparison, I thought, as very early on in its history Presbyterian Support created itself into an independent organization of the church.  It continues to take personnel from the church and has the right to address the church courts and parishes, but it can also choose its own social policy.  I doubt whether the bishop of the Destiny Church will give it that freedom.

It’s always the controversial leaders and spokesman in any idealogical world-view that the media wants to quote.  I wish that they would take a more sensible approach.  Not going to happen!  If wishes were horses…then hobbits would fall off them more often!
