Sadly Spectators Not Disciples

Posted in better disciples at 10:54 AM by alexlozada

The congregation I serve is praying for, giving to, and traveling to Africa more since our Global Impact emphasis in Sp 07. Though our raw numbers are smaller than the American church referenced in this post, we face the same phenomena of people who identify Mountain Christian as their “home church,” but are not connected in weekly worship, small groups, serving, or giving. Mountain needs prayer (from Africa and elsewhere) for members for whom “church membership has become a spectator sport rather than a vital part of daily life.”

    You can also check out a similar critique here. We who are a part of this thing that is the American mega-church need to be very careful. We may find ourselves giving our lives to a lovely and exciting purpose that turns out to be a distraction to the kingdom of God.
