Wow. We, my husband and I and our three kids, were just talking about this. In fact we are beginning a family study of the New Testament church compared to church today and what “church” really means.
When we attend a physical church we go to a very large CMA churchand have been feeling exactly the problem he is talking about. Last year the Lord laid on my heart the need for revival within our particular church which would then spread through the area we live in. I prayed and prayed over it and finally, at His command, communicated this need to our head pastor. For a while all of the pastors began to focus on this need for revival and refocus and then suddenly switched gears back to building bigger and better buildings and having better “programs” (right after having a church “survey” pointing out all the flaws in the church.) My heart aches.
