Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. -- Matthew 12: 30 (ESV)

I routinely peruse the church growth guru landscape to see the cutting edge of the next big heresy that the purpose driven church will introduce into the body of Christ. I do this so we are prepared when it comes to our churches and because the bible says to be wary of the schemes of the enemy. Yes beloved, those that have infiltrated the church through Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church are not doing the will of God and in fact are destroying God's church. Realize this encompasses the vast majority of churches today, many of whom have pastors raised and taught under Warrenology. Heretics like Andy Stanley and Mark Driscoll absolutely worship Warren and his teachings on how to become filthy rich as a pastor; I mean how to grow your church for the cause of Christ. One such guru that I regularly check in on is Carey Nieuwhof. Carey is always riding the next big carnal wave of absolute nonsense that the church will embrace. This week he penned an article (linked above) entitled "7 Signs Your Church Is Honestly, Mediocre" and with a title like that I had to see what he had to say. So let us reason together and ask yourself one question as you read along. Where is Jesus and His Gospel? Spoiler alert -- He is not to be found.

"One of the problems many churches face these days is that they're neither great at things or terrible at things. They're honestly just, mediocre. Facebook Live has made watching other churches' services easier than ever, and as I've scrolled through my Sunday morning feed or visited different churches over the years, I've been a little amazed at what I've seen. Unfortunately, there's a lot of mediocrity out there. That probably sounds judgmental, and I'm sorry if that's how it feels. But there's a lot at stake here. When your church is mediocre, it should be no surprise unchurched people aren't lining up to join you and that you're not attracting and keeping the amazing leaders who might attend your church but don't want to get involved because things are so sub-par." -- Carey Nieuwhof
