I know a person who decided they wanted a new sign for their church. (not a leader - just a member - a well off member). Got bids, presented a check to the church for the amount (5 digits) but then city counsel voted the sign down. She went on the rampage and spent months in city hall researching EVERY sign ever put up in town - making note of permits, sizes etc. And put it all back in city counsels face - they still haven't voted in her favor. The church said 'forget it we have a sign already, we don't have to have the other one" - but she yelled NO - this is God's plan for us to have this sign and we're gonna have it if I have to fight city counsel for the next 5 years.
I was not under the impression that this is how God works. If something is in His will - then He moves the immovable, makes the insuperable challenge look as easy as the blink of an eye. Minds change and things happen that wouldn't normally happen. And while I believe that sometimes He wants us to fight the battle, I have to wonder if this is HER plan or God's plan. This 'plan' has caused a huge riff in the community, pitted neighbor against neighbor and she's put herself center stage, pounding her fist and proclaiming GOD'S PLAN.
None of this sounds like anything I've ever seen in relation to how God works. They've even had people leave the church citing they didn't want to be any part of her trying to make the church (and city) do things her way.
I say if the church votes to drop it - why not drop it? Why does one person try to prove how big they are by causing strife between neighbors and church members? That just doesn't sound very God-like to me.
