But The Church is Full of Hypocrites

This is my response for professed “mature Christians” who say they aren’t part of a local church because churches are full of hypocrites. Consequently they justify their three buddies at Starbucks every other Thursday as their “church.” Listen, don’t let your illusion of ideal Christian community keep you from experiencing actual Christian community within the local church. Are churches full of hypocrites? Yup. Join us. We have a seat for you. If you love Jesus, you have to love what Jesus loved. And, despite her foibles and faults, Jesus loves the local church.
