John Santic asks four great questions about mega-church ecclesiology, including this one:
How is mission to be understood within your ecclesiology? Is God's mission in this world to entertain the bored? Or is it about learning to act against injustice, feed the poor, care for the brokenhearted, and heal the sick? If church is all about getting people to come, then how does the pattern of being "sent" that we find in the incarnation fit into the picture? If a boring church is a sin, is not an entertaining one a sin also when we consider what the work of Christ was all about? Where does the call of Isaiah 61 fit into the picture?
