Take it Easy part 4

Hebrews 12:1-3

Much of what makes American Christianity so resistible to those outside those outside the faith are things we should have been resisting all along. While many of us have been working hard to make church more interesting, it turns out that fewer people are actually interested. Here are five reasons people are really leaving the church:

We tell people that the Bible is the basis of Christianity.
They believe suffering disproves the existence of God.
They had a bad church experience.
We're bad at making people feel welcome.
We made ekklesia (the church) a building.
