Do You Go To a “Me Church”?

It’s true, you are unique, and there really is nobody quite like you. Let’s face it, the old way of doing church just didn’t seem very relevant; in fact – you found it boring. But now we live in a time when churches recognize that you are special, and want to meet you right where you are at. Here’s a short video that might help you determine how far your church is willing to go in meeting your felt-needs.


 


How to know if your’s is a “me church”:

  • Are you treated like a “consumer” who needs customer service?
  • Does your pastor preach sermons on topics that
    you want to hear, instead of what you really need to hear?
  • Are his sermons packed with feel-good psychology and philosophy?
  • Does your church try to entertain you with worldly music and drama?
  • Do the sermons minimize or eliminate negative things in the bible?
  • Is your worship music virtually indistinguishable from MTV and radio?
  • What gets boosted more, your self-esteem or your bible knowledge?

Maybe it’s time to find a church that closer fits the bible’s plan:

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved”. –Acts 2:42-47

If there is anything in the church to which you belong
which is contrary to the inspired Word, leave that church
.”
–CH Spurgeon
