    The world is crazy and stupid! American churches & schools evolved in greed and ungodly ways since the 60s. Certainly not sayin Joepa is the Pope, but even the Pope handled it badly. You KNOW the key players would go back and do it differently…Come on people, it was the “generation” of it all! Acts 28:3…The world is rarely impacted and drawn to Jesus through the sight of Christians ‘prospering.’ DIFFICULTY is the agent that OFTEN allows people an opportunity to see the REALITY of Jesus Christ more CLEARLY. Ethics are to blame for much of this. We’ll ALL do better learning from mistakes…Just sayin….
