That the 21st century church is being rocked is evident. Who among us does not know of a once strong church on the brink of nonexistence. Fingers of blame can be pointed in various directions.
Most certainly we have done injury to ourselves. We have continued steadfast in presenting a message in terms no longer understood by the masses around us. We have turned inward and failed to acknowledge must less anticipate the cultural shift represented by post-modernism. We have gone to war with each other over often insignificant issues. We have witnessed the rise and success of other churches with bewilderment.
So what’s next? Our past methods currently don’t deliver. Gospel Meetings have long since stopped being an evangelistic tool. The days of the door-to-door campaign being effective are behind us. Just what can we do to reconnect to our culture with the good news of Christ?
Someone said it is all about being relevant. I agree.
