“Church shopping is great and everyone who takes seriously the call to follow Christ should do it. I think critiquing the church you’re in is important and working to improve our community and how we serve one another is important.
But when it comes to church shopping, or analysing our own church and its practices, we ask the wrong questions.
The primary question is not “will this church meet my needs” or “is this church meeting my needs?”
It should be
“am I willing to give myself to the cause for which this church exists?”
