Why is the church declining? Sometimes the answer is easy.

Here is the preaching schedule I saw in a local church newsletter.

Sept 2-Planet Earth Sunday

Sept 9-Mountains and Valley Sunday

Sept 16-Sky Sunday

Sept 23-Humanity Sunday

Is it just me or will people actually roll out of bed early on Sundays, get the kids ready, packed into the car and rush to get a pew in anticipation of these topics?

In significant measure this is mainline denominational Christianity. I picked a mainline denomination off the web to attend the Sunday after Easter. The Pastor’s message was on why Jesus was not God and why Jesus’ mother used cuss words at the foot of the cross, like any disappointed mother would do. Of course, they did the obligatory confession of the Apostles Creed.

Oh my!!!
