10 Reasons Most Churches are Living in the Past

The temptation to compare leaves any and all churches vulnerable to living in the past. Relevancy is a hot topic in modern churches, and the lack of it is to blame for the closing of older church doors. The trick is finding the balance between living in the world we’ve been put in to reach, without sacrificing the truth of God’s Word.

Love is the key to relevancy. God will place people in the doorways of our churches, and leave the responsibility of loving on them to us. Jesus comes into broken hearts in a flurry of love, healing the hurting. We, God’s church, are an extension of that love. Here are ten ways we are hindering the ones we need to be helping, thus failing to move forward equipped to help those who have the most dire need for Christ’s saving love.
