Christains Are Called To Be Salt, Not Sugar

America is in trouble, because most churches are serving syrup. The largest church in America takes no position on the great moral issues of the day. Men marry men, 10 commandments ripped off of buildings, evolution trumps creation, abortion is a choice. That’s okay, come to our church, who are we to judge?
It takes courage to confront sin, to be the corrosive eating away at the framework of the world. Sad to say, but the world has become the salt of the church.

Corrosive Christianity

You might lose some friends, you might lose some church members, and you might make some enemies. But it is time you ask yourself if you intend to build a church, or be the church.

This is an OUTSTANDING article! It defines, with ruthless accuracy, the state of too many "churches" in the United States today.
Coach Daubenmire is absolutely correct... the world has indeed become the salt of the church. With your blessing, I'm going to post this article on my blog as well.

Peace, love and prayers...
