Is this the greatest obstacle/threat to Christianity?

  • One Day a Week discipleship
  • Denominational identities
  • European/Western Jesus
  • Overhead costs
  • Hierarchical organization
  • Nostalgia and sentimentality
  • Focus on buildings and things
  • Self-righteousness
  • Hypocrisy and judgmentalism
  • Cheap Grace
  • Pharisaism and Law Righteousness
  • Entitlement
  • Quenching of the Holy Spirit
  • Me

More later. I'm still thinking.

Do you have any ideas? Let me know what you think.

I think you have hit nail on the head. The question to ask next is how do you fix the problem, now that it has been identified?

You (me) surrender. Totally. You see that Kierkegaard and Bonhoeffer weren't the END of something, but the repeat of the beginning.

None of that fits within my comfort zone.
