“…many in this generation attend church to find peace and happiness, not pardon and holiness. They want to be fulfilled, not discover how Christ is the fulfillment of earlier revelation. They prefer entertainment to worship, oratory to truth, and programs to piety.” D. A. Carson in A Call to Spiritual Reformation
Have you stopped to listen to yourself when you invite a friend to church? What do you verbally offer? Great people, good music? Support groups for whatever? A well-spoken pastor?
Or an opportunity to truly worship the triune God in Spirit and in truth.
