What’s wrong with the church?

Too many Christians today find themselves asking questions like, “where is the church”, “what’s wrong with the church”, or “I don’t see the church”. During this year of absence from the defined gathering of the church in buildings, we should have had time to take a close look at who we are versus who we should be.

The underlined issue with the church, or the organized body of believers of Jesus Christ is simple. We have spent the last decades trying to lead the church from a standpoint of 2000 years ago as opposed to the real issues of today. Where are we in relations to gun violence, voter suppression, economic inequality, racism, poverty, etc.? We spend too much time looking and sounding like the church.

Jesus on the other hand was more concerned about the needs of the people and less about looking the part of Messiah.

Matthew 9:35-36. And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

Jesus was moved with compassion and he tried to help as many as he could. We cannot help everybody but we can enhance the lives of many.
