Re: Social Winnowing
Right! Thank you, you are so right. It usually comes down to abandoning the campaign or finding support within the church by those who are like-minded and feel like there is "something funny going on". Unfortunately, this is an invitation to party spirit and divisiveness in the church; just as destructive, sometimes.
Another subset in Groups 2 & 3:
People who simply cope with the villainy in leadership because participation in the group (church in this example) fulfills needs. These people are sometimes labelled "Fence Sitters" by those rallying support against the leaders, and so the battle begins!
It is better to ask someone to follow their conscience, perhaps. :-P :-P :-P
