I got an email from an acquaintance this weekend raising many of the questions that have been plaguing me about our church practices. It got me thinking, it just seems that there are more and more people who are looking at Scripture and looking at how we “do church” and sensing a disconnect. It raised a couple of questions:
Is that truly the case?
What is causing it?
Does it just seem that way because we have a social network that extends far beyond people who live around us and family or are the same electronic resources making it easier for people to talk to others with similar feelings and embolden those who sense something amiss? Maybe it is both. Whatever the case, I am glad to see that people are getting as serious about seeing church practice be faithful to Scripture as they are about theology being faithful to Scripture.
