Our modern culture looks at “church” as perfectly painted steeples and pews in perfect order with a band at the altar.
But truly church is a people and this people is broken beyond the all the remedies this world has to offer.
Our modern culture sees “worship” as a concert and short sermon once a week.
But truly worship is what we do and think each and every day, not just a single hour on Sundays.
Our modern culture calls the Bible irrelevant in the modern era; nothing more than stories and some good advice.
But truly the Bible is God’s word and His word does not change.
Our modern culture likes to focus on the “love, peace and acceptance” part of Christianity.
But truly God’s definition of these words is quite different from the world’s.
Our modern culture labels anyone that goes to church and owns a Bible a Christian.
But truly being a Christian is more than going through the motions and is about developing a relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Straw-man argument. By definition, void of truth.
“But truly being a Christian is more than going through the motions and is about developing a relationship with our Heavenly Father.”
As Keith Green used to say, “Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to McDonalds makes you a hamburger.”
True that! 🙂
