    I voted for the church as the one at fault, which of course is "we", all denominations and I include "me" in that guilt.

    "‘You are salt to the world. And if salt becomes tasteless, how is its saltness to be restored? It is good for nothing but to be thrown away and trodden underfoot.‘ You are light for all the world. A town that stands on a hill cannot be hidden. When a lamp is lit, it is not put under the meal-tub, but on the lampstand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. Like the lamp, you must shed light among your fellows, so that, when they see the good you do, they may give praise to your Father in heaven." (Matt 5:13-16, REB)

    The churches look like the world, sound like world, act like the world, so what is the difference in this day. Even the good news is peddled like an Amway product with churches being the Amway pep talk sales conventions.

    We told Jesus he had to take a back seat to the IRS . . . for tax purposes.
