Subtle Soul Killer

Barna's latest headline reads ... "House Churches Are More Satisfying to Attenders Than Are Conventional Churches". The abstract they sent to my email says, "House churches are more likely than conventional churches to satisfy the needs and expectations of their participants."

The Revolution / Reformation we're engaging in will all-too-easily become tied & gagged if we give into the consumeristic selfishness that is so default to our human nature & worldly culture. While we discover the beauty of decentralizing & reconnecting, let's be careful not to do any of it for self-centered reasons. Remember, the methodology is for the mission; & the mission is outwardly focused.

This is never about our own consumeristic "satisfaction". That comfortable little blanket is the same subtle soul killer that lamed the church of the previous generation.
