The wonderful world of Disn … oops, uh … church …
Why is it that one of the most profound absences in many churches is the great scarcity of disciple-making disciples?
Why is it that more church congregations are biblically illiterate than spiritually mature?
Why is it that the church continues to decline?
There are multiple reasons, but I’ll suggest one: too many have gone Walt Disney.
Disney once said, “I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.”
Walt’s statement is a remarkably accurate description of what comes from too many pulpits (or stage chairs) today, in spite of the Apostle Paul’s admonition to “Preach the word of God. Be
prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct,
rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching,” 2 Timothy 4:2.
To lead the people of God, you must preach the Word of God. What are you doing?
