Church — It’s all about…… YOU!!! NO, It is CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED AND RAISED FOR OUR JUSTIFICATION

In our rush for reaching the unchurched and making church “relevant” to the post modern youth, we have a tendency to try to be all things to all people.  Not in the sense Paul refers to.  Or in the sense Christ was and is for us.  Rather, we have a tendency to go out of our way not to offend, to make newcomers feel comfortable, to meet vague and undefined felt needs of the individual.  It is subjectivity at its finest.  The tail wagging the the proverbial dog.  God’s work is always alien,  extra nos, outside of us, working to break us down to the point where faith enters in and new life in Christ begins.  This only comes through the preaching of the Cross and Christ crucified.  It is an offensive, bloody, gory mess.  It is foolishness to our sensibilities.  Yet to those of us who are dying, and that is every one of us, it is the power of God unto eternal life.

Does this video describe your church???
