WoW10: Things only start to change when you own the problem

I just read something about the politics of Mexico in the 80s. Here is some background.

Since PRI has been the ruling party for decades, PAN the main opposition blamed the poor economy on PRI. PRI being the government for so long, blamed the economy on the people, and mainly the Indian south. But whatever it is, nobody felt responsible to do something about the economy itself.

That is a terrifying thought for the church. If the opposition blame the church leadership, and the church leadership blame the congregation, and nobody own the problems, real transformation will never take place. Time to stop pushing blame, and take the difficult part of changing yourself.
