The American Christian Asks: What Kind of Church Would People Like?
In 1994, he started a church in California by asking “what kind of church would I go to?” He says the question should have been, “what kind of church would please God?”
He then challenged the APU students to be the generation that refuses to be consumers, loves fellow believers like family, trembles at his word, and are devoted to prayer.
He invited them to get a group of ten Christians together in a house with a piece of bread and a Bible and just hang out with each other, talking about the word and enjoying fellowship with God.
He predicted they would find that all the things we do to make church more exciting are actually killing it.
He says making that break will open our eyes to how weird the church in America has become and how to avoid the dire consequences that Jesus warns us about in Revelation.
