quote on the church

“There seems to be many churches that could be compared to a rocking chair. From a distance they look to be doing a lot of work, but in reality they are not getting anywhere. Yes, there is the appearance of a movement, but it’s not a movement that attracts others. In fact the rocking motion is putting many of their members to sleep. Rocking chairs and crying babies are a familiar combination. I don’t think Jesus intended for the church to be in the business of pacifying its members, but getting them off the bottle and on to real spiritual food that will help them grow in their faith. As they grow there will be real transformation taking place within the community.”
