#4 - My Church is My Social Club
Volume 1 - Prayers to Love God
God, I love my church. It's my private club; the exclusive community I am proud to belong to. We allegedly invite people to come to our church but, in truth, we tell people to stay away. Our photos on our church website suggest that only beautiful and influential people - like me - attend our church. We don't share on our website any humble and transparent testimonies of Christ healing our brokenness. We seem like perfect people to outsiders. We don't offer any outreach ministries, welcoming the hurting people in our community to come to us. Therefore, people with messy lives will stay away. We are shocked when an outsider enters through our open door on a Sunday. If they do, we will be cold and distant so they dare not come to visit us again. Life will go on as usual. We will continue to enjoy our worship services and social activities, making sure that we are truly at the center of all things. God, you are merely a purpose for us to gather to celebrate our own greatness. Amen.
