Upping the Ante with Rob Bell

Here are some sobering comments on the role of the church in North American culture:

If Jesus comes to town and things don’t get better, then we have to ask some hard questions.

I think the problem is that when people say ‘church’ many mean religious goods ad services where you come and there’s a nice inspiring talk, good coffee in the back, snappy music and everything ends up fine. Jesus speaks of His people who are willing to suffer and die so that the world can be healed – that’s an entirely different proposition.
