We have tried to win the world by holding meetings within our church buildings.There is one tragic flaw in this approach- the world does not attend the meetings. The "world"knows little and cares less about what takes place in the meetings we are so careful to hold in our church buildings. Thus in all these meetings we are simply talking to each other.Whether it's a mens meeting or a bible study class or a meeting of the women, we are talking about "loving the world" and 'transforming the world",but basically all we do is talk to each other. If it's a baptist meeting,,all the Baptists, invite their Methodist,and Presbyterian friends so the visiting speaker will not be enbarrassed by the small attendance. All the vaunted activity we put into preparation for the special services,the prayer. the visits,the effort to be present every night-the results are the same- we simply talk to each other. The world remains untouched.
