Quick Thought: The Church of Today

After reading through a few church and ministry visions and goals...

I fear the day when our goals as the body of Christ is merely to be a 'positive influence' and to make people 'feel valued'.

Does that not undervalue the gospel of the Cross of Christ?

He came, He died, He rose, to be much more than merely a 'positive influence' and to make people 'feel valued'.

Did you see the story about Kirkplace Pressy last weekend?

Typical trashy brekky show took the meaning of Christmas away from the birth of Jesus Christ, the gospel message and having prayer groups in the CBD, to helping those that are disadvantaged and in need. (not that we shouldn't help those in need, but again it shows that they are more focused on community service and philanthropy).

What would you suggest instead? A Theocracy?

I don't feel like most churches today even make it that far. But you're right. This is not the time for the Church to continue to die slowly. There is a call much higher than "do good and wait for heaven."
We need to be good stewards of the world we live in by taking up our role as sons of God and coheirs with Christ and show the world that the Kingdom of God is more real than they think.

This is an important post! The church has been steadily "under valueing" the work Christ did at the cross for some time now. A prime example of what the church is becoming in some places is Joel Osteen, who in my opinion is nothing more than a motivational speaker touting all the things we find on the primrose path instead of the truth of what's to come. Let us lift our voices in unison against the "feel good church," which speaks comfortable words and under value Christ and His great sacrifice!!
