We’re hard on the Church in general. We’re hard on the American Church in specific. We can take turns on the reasons each of us are hard on the Church.
I am hard on the American conservative Church because of its spiritual blindness. Yet… I stay with it. Why?
We just need boredom. Our enemy is not interested in our utter rejection of the gospel if we are simply bored with our Christianity.
I ran across this great C.S. Lewis quote from The Screwtape Letters:
If you can once get him to the point of thinking that “all religion is all very well up to a point,” you can feel quite happy about his soul. A moderated religion is as good for us as no religion at all — and more amusing.
In our entertainment-driven church model (and I think again of that insane use of MMA for “evangelism”) it is a good reminder that Satan will use ANYTHING to take us out. If need be, he will simply make you BORED with Christianity. We will end up looking for the adrenaline rush instead of Christ.
