It [church] has become a social institution, based upon racism, classism, sexism, denominationalism, and egotism, and has lost its direction and identity.
HOUSTON (PRWEB) April 23, 2018
Even in places like Texas, where there seems to be a church on every corner, church leadership is reporting a steady decline in attendance. According to ChurchLeaders.com, only about 18% of Americans actually attend a weekly worship service.
Pastor Dana Carson, D.Min., Ph.D., believes that the key to bringing believers back is teaching the fundamentals in a practical way, using contemporary terms.
In “Welcome to the Kingdom: How to Live a 21st Century Kingdom Life,” Dr. Carson offers a guidebook for understanding the teachings of Jesus and the fundamentals of the “Kingdom of God,” in its Jewish context.
“Our young people are exiting the church in great numbers,” Dr. Carson said. “It has become a social institution, based upon racism, classism, sexism, denominationalism, and egotism, and has lost its direction and identity.”
Dr. Carson is the founder and senior pastor of Reflections of Christ Kingdom World Outreach International and has written over 200 books, guides and educational materials to train leaders and laypeople in the Kingdom Bible University: a distance-learning program that offers “Kingdom-based” courses in biblical education.
“The church was created to usher people into the kingdom and serve as an embassy of God’s kingdom on earth,” Dr. Carson said. “This book is designed to help provide some insight and assistance to 21st century believers, who desire to live wholly and completely for Christ the King.”
