The Children’s Ministry Doesn’t Replace Ministry to Children

Churches see youth who enter the building as their responsibility, but pay little attention to neglected children in the community.  Scriptures are clear that “religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress” (James 1:27).  Jesus healed kids, fed kids, raised kids from the dead, blessed them, prayed for them, welcomed them and repeatedly emphasized that adults should be more like them (Mark 10:15).

Why U.S. Churches Turn a Blind Eye to Persecuted Christians

Today we begin examining blind spots obstructing the view of churches to responsibilities clearly spelled out in scriptures.  Pastors and members alike gloss over selected verses, not seeing problems outside the church as their responsibility.  Instead, a topic Jesus and Paul considered among the foremost indicators of our faith and salvation – our love for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ – is almost completely ignored by nearly all churches in America.

Why Christianity Has Lost Its Appeal

A 4th sign your church is coming down with a cold is Compromise. When we talk about treating members as “customers”, people naturally think of prosperity churches or megachurches.  However in many ways the temptations to treat members as “customers” are even greater within a small or young church.

In other words, defining the wrong “customer” is less about relying on “attractional” models and more about succumbing to pastoral pressures.

Nearly All Organizations Partner – Why Don’t Churches?

Is your church decentralized, empowering disciples?  Or is it depersonalized, entrusting responsibility for being “church” to the few rather than to many?  A third way to know if your church is healthy or coming down with a cold is the degree to which it has internalized.  In other words, has it become an entity unto itself, operating independently, or is it still engaged with other organizations?
