5 seductive churches you need to watch out for… they'll steal your soul.

seductive churchesYou don’t often think about churches as being seductive, but Scott Cochrane thinks that there are actually five types of churches that  steal a pastor’s heart if you’re not careful…

Seductive churches include:

1.  The church you WANT to lead

Don’t get caught up in your fantasy church.

2. Your former church

Don’t constantly thrive to make your current church your old church.

3.  Someone else’s church

Don’t covet your friend’s church (I think this might be the 11th commandment)

4.  The ‘good ole days’ church

Don’t wallow in memories of the church era you most enjoyed.

5.  A sub-set of your own church

Don’t dream about the church you lead without certain people.

Any (or all) of these ‘seductive churches’ will lead you down the wrong path and stifle what God wants to do in your current church.

Which of these five seductions causes you the most temptation?

And how do you deal with it?

Do you need to realign today?
