Spiritual Essentials vs. Manmade Elements

Pg 76-Chapter 8- “First, believers need the freedom, courage, and honesty to assess what is spiritually essential and what is not. That means looking squarely at the manmade elements in the church that have divided rather than united us”.

Do we really have the ability to say enough to the extra’s without being ridiculed for our push back? It seems to me most believers would be scared to be that honest in the church. If we can not be honest there, then we have created a system that is destined for failure.
