This feels like propaganda Edward. Almost all the opening phrases are standard clichés regarding the western church which could be said — maybe since the 1990’s.

To quote Almost Famous, “where’s your story in this? This feels like something the band wanted you to write.”

The church has large problems, always will as long as it is filled with broken and selfish people. And they existed long before a one term president with orange hair.

What about your story? Do you have the Holy Spirit? If you do is it through prayer you decided to write this? I don’t disagree with many of your concerns but so what now? Are you a helper or a complainer?What action will you take — or does it just feel virtuous to blame?
