It’s time for the church to face facts. The fact that many people’s perception of the church is that it's too sheltered, boring, unintelligent and out of touch with reality.
This perception has come because of an unnecessary and unbiblical separation of the church from the world. The perception is that the church is like a club that only certain people – good people – can join. How wrong this is.
Christians are accused of being too focused on getting converts and likened to telemarketers according to research conducted by David Kinnaman for the Barna Foundation.
While it horrifies me to think that Christians are seen to pester, in response to this criticism I would say, “Yes, I am out to convert people to Jesus because I believe He is the way and the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him” (See John 14:6).
