“Being well-taught is not the same thing as being transformed.” ~ Ruth Haley Barton
When the world looks at the Church, and maybe particularly at the leaders of the Church, you know what they’re asking themselves?
Certainly they’re asking about what we believe or who is Jesus and all that. But what they’re really asking underneath it all is this:
Do I want to be like you? Do I want the life you have?
And frankly for most of the Church there isn’t much about who they are or the life they have that’s very appealing to people.
That’s the elephant in the room for Christianity today.
