I started reading Christless Christianity: The Alternative Gospel of the American Church by Dr. Michael Horton. On page 16-17 he makes a statement which the underlying thesis statement I would assume of this book. It reads…
I think that the church in America today is so obsessed with being practical, relevant, helpful, successful, and perhaps even well-liked that it nearly mirrors the world itself. Aside from the packaging, there is nothing that cannot be found in most churches today that could not be satisfied by any number of secular programs and self-help groups.
Basically a Christianity without Christ. So what do you think… harsh? Right on? Not my church or oh yeah that fits my church to a T. I’d love to read your thoughts.
I think this is going to be a very challenging book.
