This week (March 14-20, 2010), I’m taking part in a blog tour of John H. Armstrong’s new book Your Church is Too Small. Armstrong begins each chapter with quotes from various writers throughout church history. Each day this week, I’m going to highlight one of those quotes.
One reason the church is failing today is that it has so many members who are not kingdom-of-God men and women! They may be active in the church program – regular at worship, involved in the administration of the religious establishment – but they lack kingdom-of-God qualities. -Richard Halverson
