This…makes me ill

‘Secret worshippers’ critique churches

This just makes me ill… if you read this article, you will see that evidently church is becoming more commercial than faith-based.

Since when did one pick a church based on whether or not there were faded lines in the parking spots or there was a bucket under the sink? Seriously! If you are looking for a church based on trivial things such as if there is a little dirt on the carpet… YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE WRONG REASON! Now, I can understand the friendliness issue, I certainly find it hard to enjoy a church if I feel unwelcome when I visit but if the greeter doesn’t smile a certain way, it isn’t going to make me think the church is a failure.

The fact that this man is an Oklahoman and former pastor who is selling his services to churches shows that he is more interested in profit of the world rather than profit of heaven. If you need focus groups to determine why a church is losing members, it is becoming too commercialized. You need to pray and seek God A LOT more than you are currently. If the doors are open, let God send the people to the church instead of marketing it.
