Why the Church Is Losing the Next Generation

"I started to wonder whether religion itself—or at least the kind of Christianity that showed up in the slogans all around me—might really be about something else: southern culture or politics. If so, I thought, that would mean that Jesus is not the Way, the Truth, and the Life, but a means to an end. And that would mean that the gospel is not 'You must be born again,' but 'You must be one of us.'" - Russel Moore

I'm not at the point where Moore found himself, but there are times when I wonder what's more important to many churches, politics/culture or Christ.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

From my vantage point, I see a lot of "freedom-loving Americanism" being promoted over Christ-like humility and service.
