Just look around at what sells today: ‘Real coffee, real food, real clothes, real cars, real furniture.’ – And of course, churches jump on the bandwagon: We offer you ‘real church with real people’. – ‘Not like all those fake churches out there with fake people’?
This quest for authenticity is understandable to a point. – Many secular and government leaders prove to be corrupt liars. – Even worse, church leaders are exposed to be phoneys and pretenders.
People are tired of hypocrisy…
