Why Churches are Losing their Most Faithful Christ-Followers

Mark is seriously considering joining the “Dones”.  He’s not quite ready to call it quits, but like a growing number of Americans who’ve been active in church for decades, Mark isn’t happy with what church has become.  Scandals rocked the first church he attended, the next church closed largely because it was run by a “genius with 1,000 helpers”, and the last church abandoned discipleship and local missions after hiring consultants from a megachurch.

Why Youth Don’t Return to Church After College

As much as Mark and Jessica would like their kids to cling to the Christian values and faith they were taught, it’s an uphill battle.  Social media, television, teachers and friends compete for their hearts and minds.  They considered sending Emily and Ethan to a Christian school, but it wasn’t affordable.  They try to monitor the kids’ intake of sexual and violent content, but it’s coming from all directions.  Eventually all children must confront the realities of a society bent on eliminating Jesus from His own equation.

The Last Person You’d Ever Suspect…

Jessica rarely misses a church service.  With Bible in hand, she smiles at the greeters and enters the foyer excitedly, saying hello to a few familiar faces as she makes her way toward the sanctuary doors.  She sees that her favorite pew is unoccupied and puts her bulletin in the seat next to her, reserving it for her husband.  As usual, Mark barely made it past the front entrance before stopping to chat with friends and staff members – and if history is any guide,

The Unconventional Church Shopper

In our last post, we considered which should come first, church engagement or discipleship?  In other words, is routing believers and non-believers alike through church events, activities and membership an impediment or gateway to discipleship?  If church engagement was strategically leveraged as a gateway then opportunities for discipleship should be readily available after jumping through the requisite church “hoops”.  However, few churches offer clear paths and adequate opportunities for growth and ministry in the community and world.

Ulterior Motives in the Fight against Church Consumerism

There are two routes pastors can go down when urging congregants not to be church consumers:

1.  “Ask not what your church can do for you; ask what you can do for your church”

Phrases you’re likely to hear from church leaders making this argument against consumerism:

  • “Church is not here to serve you…be a servant”
  • “Don’t just show up and slip out the back door on Sundays…get involved”
  • “If you’ve been attending for a while,

Yes, it’s ok to talk about sin

In the name of tolerance, today’s intolerant culture has convinced those they don’t tolerate (Christians and churches) that bringing up sin is hypocritical at best and hateful at worst.  In fact, the nerve of Christians to have an opinion about sin in an age of moral relativism is the reason for the world’s intolerance toward believers.

On the one hand, they do have a point.  How could we expect those who don’t know the Lord to adopt His standard for their behavior?
