Church Hopping

The Truth carried on its opinion page today "From the Hart" by Betsy Hart an article titled 'Church hopping' shows how selfish we've become. You can read the whole article on her blog for July 8.

In part she suggests that we treat our church membership a lot like we treat our marriages. Hey, if I'm not "happy" in the moment, just move on, right? The impact on others or a pledge to something bigger than ourselves doesn't matter because "it's all about me."

I would have to say that she has hit the nail on the head. I observe and hear too much of this "it's all about me" style of religiosity that today passes as Christianity. What about the covenant we have made with Christ and the Church?

The article is worth your reading.
