The “Re-Think Church” movement is just another attempt by charlatans to re-package the Church into something more appealing to the masses. The re-thinking may include: Coffee Shops, Hip-Hop Music, Less Preaching and More Drama, Psychological Counseling, Contemporary Christian Music, and a no-commitment membership. Everything has been modified so that nothing is ever negative, no one asks anything of you, you are not stressed in any way, and you can choose your own way to serve God. The “Re-Think” Church is a “User-Friendly” Church. It is not a “God-Friendly” Church.
Jesus said these great words concerning discipleship in Matthew 16:24: “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” These words make it clear that following Jesus is not about our comfort but about our willingness to serve Him at any cost.
Instead of Churches “Re-Thinking” maybe they would be better off doing a little “Re-Penting”!
