Trouble in Megachurch Paradise

Posted by

John Seel brought my attention to this article in today's USA Today.

Here are a couple of quotes.

"You can create a church that's big, but is still not transforming people. Without transformation, the Christian message is not advanced." -- Ed Stetzer, Lifeway Research

"The megachurch story is not really about growth. It's about shifting allegiances. People want to feel good about who they already are. If church is too challenging or not entertaining, they'll move on." -- Philip Goff, Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture at Indiana University
