The Seeker Sensitive Movement

Interesting article looking at the church growth seeker-sensitive models by Clay Miller, Associate Pastor at Grace Community Church (John McArthur's church). The focus is on Bill Hybels and Rick Warren. Read the article here. More articles and information on the seeker sensitive model here and here.

What happened to good old biblical exegesis? Isn't the word of God living and powerful enough? I think we're going the wrong direction when we have the culture determining how we "do" church instead of the church defining the culture. It's not surprising though...we are afterall fallen men and women who have itching ears and a bent towards anything but complete 100% submission to God and His will for our lives.
