“we are just looking for community”

Read entire post HERE.

The “we/they are just looking for community” mantra is flattery of the first order. For what it’s worth my experience is that those who drone on most about “community” either live it out as if the concept flows heavily in one direction (toward them) or it’s used as a pretext to see their own subgroup (who – now here’s a shock – share the same life stage and preferences) as being the only ones who are worth having community with. The boring, the prosaic, the unlovely and the uncool (read that: most of the church) are to be endured and not taken seriously. This culture is to be ruthlessly challenged, not pandered to.
