If being saved simply means waiting for the bus to come with Jesus and all the angels, then church is just another way to make yourself comfortable waiting. Coffee shops and waiting rooms, reading rooms and then some singing and dancing. Maybe Jesus or the angels will come and do a miracle or two, making our stay here more pleasant. The band plays while the ship sinks. The party goes on while the hurricane continues to come, bringing with it the destruction of our world as we know it. Perhaps there is something more… Perhaps we are responsible for our neighbor and the plight of those that are starving. Perhaps over there is not way over there, out of sight and un-rechable. Perhaps we should do more than tell God we love Him and care for God’s children everywhere.
Maybe our comfort and surroundings is not really that important.
