Where am I to go?

Where am I to go

This quote by Robert Webber has me stirring in side.

“Pragmatics, being fixed, have little room for those who are shaped by the postmodern revolution. A clash is emerging. The younger evangelicals will not have a voice in the pragmatic, fixed mentality. Stay there and your spirit will die (there are some exceptions, pray for discernment).”

You can read the rest of the interview this before.

This morning I went to my car planning to attend a Sunday morning service but I couldn’t think of anywhere I would want to go.

Later on in the article Webber suggests the following. “Leave. Do a start up church. Be a tentmaker. Build communities. Small groups. Neighborhood churches. Be willing to let your life die for Jesus as you break with the market driven, culture shaped, numbers oriented, Wall-Mart-something-for-everyone church. Be an Abraham and take a risk. God will show up and lead the way.”

I think he’s right.

    How about church in the Walmart Supercenter parking lot? In an effort to reach out to the community and bring Christ to the lost, my church actually pondered the idea of Walmart on a Sunday morning. Coffee, donuts, the gospel? We church goers need to think about how to show Christ to the world. There are many who need the Lord and the church isn’t for those in it, it is for those not in it! When we start thinking about what to do for ourselves within the church, it’s wrong thinking. We need to be biblical, educated and spiritually healthy, this is true, AND we need to reach out to the lost. If the church would focus on God and not the “church”, amazing things will happen. Amazing things DO happen. If God isn’t at church, why should I be?
