The following article is an excellent example why consuerism is a bankrupt philosophy of ministry in the local church. It will not reproduce disciplemaking disciples, but tends to encourage nominal Christianity.
I have not read this book, but the article has many good biblical presuppositions about building a Biblical Philosophy of Ministry.
What do you think? Is Consumerism a good model for a ministry philosophy or not? How should a church or pastor get the gospel out into the community? Will people listen without a consumeristic approach? How does God build the church and bring forth growth? Isn't the proclamation of the Word of God enough to build a church?
