“Worship services in many churches today are like a merry-go-round. You drop a token in the collection box; it’s good for a ride. There’s music and lots of motion up and down. The ride is carefully timed and seldom varies in length. Lots of good feelings are generated, and it’s the one ride you can be sure will never be the least bit threatening or challenging. But though you spend the whole time moving forward, you get off exactly where you got on.”
The most interesting thing to me is this was written in 1998! Just think how well this applies ten years later.
