Civilize the Satanists

This post by @rmcrob bemoans the current state of churches focused more on therapeutic purposes than biblical teaching.

A year ago we focused, ostensibly, on the Bible and what God wanted to tell us. Now we are concerned with the financial health and wealth of young families, how to raise children, how to keep a marriage vital, how to be good friends, and stuff like that. Sort of like classes you might take at a community center.

I’ve heard similar comments from others who have attended newer churches. They feel like the churches are advertising for addiction recovery programs or spiritual wellness or simply bringing people together in community. While all of those ministries are important, churches that are lacking in strong Christian theology might as well serve as alternate community centers.
