From Kingdom Come:
Missional leaders are driven by theology rather than pragmatism. There is an idea that pastors don't have the luxury of doing serious study. That is to be left for those living in ivory towers. In the real world we just need to get busy and find out what works. But pragmatism leads to theological error. Pragmatism leads to moral failure. Pragmatism leads to a human agenda.
More than ever, pastors need to be theologians.
