In spite of church growth-ism in America ... in spite of the greatest number of megachurches in our history ... in spite of many seemingly successful Christian enterprises...in spite of pastors boasting of their supposed impact ... we are experiencing the most rapid moral decline in America's history.
Atheism and heathenism have accelerated. Our public school system and universities are mass producing socialists, communists and those with an aggressive anti-Christ agenda. Nearly half of all Millennial Christians now believe evangelism is wrong.
Lust - Popularity - Position - Power - Church
Driven by a lust for popularity, position and power, many church pastors and leaders have wantonly turned a deaf ear to this national disaster that has dismantled faith and morality in America. It is a terrible thing to think that much of what we call "Christianity" in our land has become a system void of the reality and power that marked its earliest beginnings. In a majority of our churches, tradition, formality, entertainment and social justice have actually made this thing called "Christianity" perhaps the greatest enemy of the cause of Christ—a bastion of order, technique, form and philosophy that has ironically served to immunize us against the real Christ and the real gospel. Probably the worst of it is that we've become a consumer-driven enterprise that has left off the real demands of Christ and the call to genuine discipleship that makes us all fishers of men.
