Love-less, Passion-less Christianity

From Kester Brewin…a friend’s response to something Kester wrote for ThirdWay on Facebook.

I think the Western Church has become something even worse than the “buddy of Christ” I think we’ve become the no-longer-interested-spouse of Christ. The partner who is so disengaged in the relationship that they are dissolved in apathy and not even interested in divorce but have resigned themselves to a love-less, passion-less living out the rest of their days. I don’t mean to be a doomsayer but I must say that is what strikes me when I interact with most people in normal American churches, not to mention the feeling that I get when I have to sit in a service.

One response to Love-less, Passion-less Christianity

  1. Well put!
    This is a leadership conspiracy of collusion between pastors and people. Pastor’s want affirmation for their ministry. People want to live vicariously through their pastor, so that they don’t have to live through Christ. It is a passive church that produces critics not servants. This is why the missional ideal of the individual’s call to service is so revolutionary, and so needed for our time.
