Someone wrote the following…
You never hear the word “sin” there.
You hear the word “sin,” but only briefly or redefined as “mistakes.”
You can’t remember when you last heard the name of Jesus in a message.
The Easter message isn’t about the resurrection but “new opportunities” in your life or turning over a new leaf.
On patriotic holiday weekends, the message is about how great America is.
On the other weekends, the message is about how great you are.
There are more videos than prayers.
People don’t sing during “worship,” but watch.
The pastors’ chief responsibilities are things foreign to Scripture.
There is more money budgeted for advertising than for mission.
The majority of the small groups are oriented around sports or leisure, not study or service.
You always feel comfortable there.
Church membership just appears to be a recruiting system for volunteers.
You only see other church people on Sunday mornings at church.
If the above is true, chances you, you are a member of a Christian club, or a religious gathering, or a self-esteem rally – but not a Biblically-defined church.
