THE DARK SIDE OF THE CHUCH

Despite what the title of this page implies, I love the church and I believe that she is the hope of the world. God, for what ever reason, has chosen to operate though the community of believers. He loves the church and died for her, as she is made up of communities of Christ-followers. But I am concerned. I am not a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but the western church is making a series of decisions that will be quite self destructive if it continues on the path that it does. On this page i will devote to the concerns i see. On the BRIGHT SIDE OF CHRUCH, I will focus on the hope that we have.

Below are some conerns I have. I will be adding to the list as time allows.

HAS CONSUMERISM OVERTAKEN THE CHURCH?

If the rapture were to happen today, would our country notice we were gone? Would they miss us?

"At the other end of the continuum are those churches too comfortable in the world. They are like the proverbial frog in the pan on the stove unaware that it needs to get out while it is still alive!
The church needs to find Christ in the world before it suffocates from the lack of spiritual oxygen behind walls with windows that were not made to open."

(Anderson 2006 p. 191)
