When I was growing up we pronounced it “MILK toast.” It was a funny-sounding expression that referred to someone who could stand up to nothing. Whenever things got a little tough, they wilted, melting into a sea of nothingness. If there was one description you did not want to apply to you it was milque-toast.

Sadly, any number of church members and, yes, even churches fall into this bucket. Do we crumble when we encounter resistance? Are we known for our soggy response to difficulty?

I’d like to be known as a stand-up guy rather than a melt-down one, wouldn’t you?

Unfortunately, I think the church caused much of its own difficulties.
