G.K. Chesterton once said: “Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.” Unfortunately, there are many Christians who think that going to church makes them believers. Truth be told, if you don’t live in accordance to God’s word and mission, spending your Sunday mornings in the church doesn’t make you much different than the unbelievers.
We live in times when the church is not the biggest social authority that shapes people’s life like it was several centuries ago. Today, we are free to think and question things in respect of our Christian religion. This is the reason why many critique the church, especially the North American church. “Crazy Love by Francis Chan” is a New York Times best seller book that deals with the topic of church criticism.
If you are not familiar with this topic, you might think that people who criticize the church hate it. It is true that in most cases the non-believers criticize the church, but what many don’t know is that the church if often criticized by those who respect the word of God as well. We are all aware that there is something wrong in the way many Christians choose to live their life with a good amount of attention being put on religion; but what is that?
