The American Church

I recently read a blog that said “regular” church attendance in today’s culture might be twice a month. My experience tells me that statement is true. What an indictment against Christianity in America. Nowhere is the consumeristic attitudes amongst American Christians seen more than in their casual attitude toward church attendance.

Of course it’s not just the people who are to blame. Church leaders are equally culpable. We have created churches that cater to and are made for consumers. The better the product (i.e., programs and services) the more people who are willing to consume it. The time has come to revive the notion that church is a people and not a place.
