For many, “church” has become a circus – a staged show where they go to be entertained, amazed, awed and sent home feeling good.
This perversion is sustained by convincing folks that the more they are entertained, amazed, awed and feel good …
The more “God moved” and the service was “anointed” and “inspired”.
It is collective narcissism at its worst.
To question what “church” has become, among those who thrive on the show, initially invokes blank stares …
Then an incredulous disconnect as the direction of the conversation is quickly changed.
They will avoid at all cost having to consider the very idea that the Body of Christ is supposed to be something very different – and so much more significant.
