Ironic Blame

From a casual reading of my blog one might conclude that I believe that Sunday services, especially the weakly sermon, paid pastors and church buildings are a significant hindrance to people growing in their faith. If I refer to people at all, hopefully it’s in the context of illustrating the seductive power of the institution.

Some people think I’m crazy, bitter, uninformed, angry, wasting my time, and I’m just plain old fashioned mean.

It’s fascinating when things aren’t working in a church people never consider that it’s the stuff I’m writing about that might be the problem. Instead they blame the pastor or the people for not working hard enough or giving enough or caring enough.

And yet I’m the mean one.
