Another thought about Authority

In the 1960’s welfare was introduced.  This paid people to have children out of wedlock.  Anytime you pay people to do something, they will do more of it.  Out of wedlock births exploded.  In many inner city neighborhoods, husbands are considered a luxury for the wealthy.

Many churches are small and struggling.  The solution?  All too often it is not to sacrifice and make sure you have a pastor, but to become a perpetually vacant congregation.  Where is this most prevalent?  Once again, in the cities.  Small urban congregations have now gone decades without a permanent pastor.

Coincidence?   Or culture influencing the church in ways that few have even considered?  We report, you decide.
