Consumerism is Dangerous

Consumerism is dangerous.  Healthy churches need providers, not consumers.  After all, if consumers fill our pews, who’s going to turn on the lights?  Who’s going to staff children’s ministry?  Who’s going to welcome people at the door?  Advocating for commitment in a local church would seem as controversial as advocating for Jesus.
