The Church has messed up in the past, it’s messed up today, and it will be messed up in the future, simply due to the fact that it’s made up by a bunch of imperfect people trying to be used by God to have an impact on the world.
Saying that, there are some things that I firmly believe the Church should never apologize for. Here are four of them.
1) Being “Too Big”
I’m confused by the term “megachurch.” If we’re willing to call a church with 2,000 in attendance “mega” while more than 230 million Americans find more fulfilling things to do on any given Sunday, we’ve set pathetically low goals for ourselves. “But I won’t know everybody,” you say. I doubt you know everybody in your 200 member church either. I’m convinced that a lot of Christians want their churches to stay small for the sake of convenience. Every church should be concerned about reaching more and more people for Jesus, like Matthew 28:19-20 commands us to do.
