From RelevantMagazine.com, Leonard Sweet on the church:
We’re fighting over the five points of Calvinism or something. But the big Achilles heel of the church is the practice of attractional Christianity, which is how you get people to come to church. It’s all “come and see,” it’s not “go and be.” The whole Great Commission is not about “come and see,” it’s “go and be.” We’re all trying to figure out how to bring more people into the church and it shouldn’t be about coming to church. It should be about coming to Christ. And then when those people come to Christ, the church’s job is to send them out.
