This is an idea that you may think about before we all jump into the quick conclusion.
It is real that we face enormous challenges as to how to deal with immoral and unethical behaviors of the church ministers and their followers.
It is true that the popularity of the Protestant churches in Korea and USA has been significantly declined lately.
There may be many ideas and ways to deal with the confronting issues and problems and there may be no quick solution in sight.
However, we have to start from some point to get to the point where we all feel good about it and it may give a way to please our righteous and merciful God who is holy and faithful.
We all agree that we have to do something about the issues of Christian leaders in Korea and Korean community in USA.
We may think that there are a few of bad apples, but I hear that there are more than just few bad apples, unfortunately. It seems that there are everywhere, you hear about the issues related to money, sex, false documents for degrees, illegal actions by the ministers in violation of church and denominational bylaws, and so forth, which gives rise to various kinds of conflicts and disputes among church members.
I know that there are a handful of organizations, associations and groups to fight against these bad apples and it appears to hit the rocks with eggs.
Just look around! how many bad apples are fallen down from their thrones.
We may have to use weapons that would work to shot them down once and for all.
I am sure that there are various weapons to use and some of them are in use like publishing newspapers, broadcasting, investigating incidences, writing books, having meetings in various locations with experts in the fields, through reform forums, websites, and blogs to inform the audiences who can be aware of the facts resulting in ultimate supporters in the end.
However, I am about to introduce a new weapon that is to have an organization to coordinate all existing groups and organizations and to cooperate with one another and to unite together to voice loudly and clearly what we need to do in order to achieve our goal that is to meet enormous challenges like the biblical episode to demolish the Jerico's walls with God's help.
I hereby challenge to establish one organization to house various departments and committees to work together and analyze the situations and issues to solve the problems.
We don't have to dissolve the existing groups and organizations, but to cooperate with one another while we are doing what is the best for our existing groups and organizations.
In order to do this we need to have meetings among representatives from various existing organizations either in Korea or in USA.
We may also need legal advice from good Christian lawyers and we may also need to have legal advisers in this new organization to conduct business in this litigation society.
It is also very important to have a fund to raise from supporters to use for the new organization as soon as it is established by fundraising department and need to be managed and published to be transparent to the supporters on a regular basis.
The headquarter for the organization can be located in Korea and the head of the organization can be a person who has spent many years for the work of church reform and purification, which can be nominated by the people and selected by the majority vote.
It behooves to have many regional headquarters in different countries and many departments to operate the organization such as executive board and advisory board for policy makers and several divisions or committees to take action such as financial, advertisement, information, investigation, meeting arrangement, website operation, fundraising, human resource, recording and archiving, publishing, legal departments, and membership, etc.
We may have to use all the resources that are available to us to achieve our goal that is to reform and purify the Korean language churches in Korea and abroad.
It will be a hard and huge undertaking, but it can be done if we unite and work together for the mission to be accomplished and to bring the glory of God through the reformed and purified churches.
Therefore, I propose to have a powerful organization to meet the enormous challenge ahead of us in order to achieve our goal to see the biblical churches among Korean community in Korea and abroad.
I can call it " World Korean church reform and purification organization" as a tentative name of the united groups.
I see that the big organization is the one way to do something about the current issues in our church community with some powerful teeth to bite. Otherwise all voices from different small groups may not fix anything permanently and effectively.
We all like to see good results, but we have to have right prescription to accomplish it.
It may be the right time to take up our things and go to the place where we all agree to put our effort, energy, and earned money(3-E) to do something about real issues that are awaiting our wisdom to resolve sooner than later.
It will be our precious legacy to give our next generation who can truly enjoy the life of worshiping our holy God in the right way.
We need to have power for the good, not for the evil.
With one harmonious voice we should be able to pressure the church to adopt the bylaws to control bad apples in pulpit and to participate in parliament hearing sessions to press lawmakers to make a law to control bad apples in church community as an important part of the healthy society.
