Since my series of articles on the pros and cons of the family integrated church continue to be read and linked to on a daily basis, I thought it would be a great idea to share some good links I have found recently that address this topic. These articles consider the theological perspective, especially as they relate to the NCFIC notion of the church being a “family of families.”
My Introduction to the Family Integrated Church Movement by Jason Webb is the first in a series of articles that are gracious in tone and give a great overview of the movement, offering good insights into the theological problems with the teachings of various leaders within the FIC.
The Relation of Church and Family by Sam Waldron outlines some of the key concerns with the FIC movement and his Biblical response is well presented and sound.
Andy Dunkerton’s article entitled What Should We Think of the Family-Integrated Church Movement? presents a brief outline of the concerns and hits the nail on the head on each point he makes.
