I was catching up on a friend’s blog and stumbled upon his newest post that mentioned an interesting article about churches as businesses, Jesus, CEO. Is this what we are becoming? I don’t understand where we get the idea that this is what church is. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I have old-fashioned ideas about church. Maybe Christians are supposed to be focused on reaching everyone else and put worshiping God as a low priority. Maybe Christians are supposed to get burnt out and not understand their source. Maybe Christians are supposed to think they have the power and ability to “save” people. Maybe Christians aren’t supposed to grow and become more like Christ.
If this is what Christianity is about, what church is; then I’m out.
