What a negative way to describe the attitude with which some people come to church.
God did not create anyone without some kind of talent or gift. He gave them to us to be used to serve one another. So...there is no room for consumerism at church!
Unfortunately and quite shamefully, we have lost dear brothers and sisters along the way because we didn't provide what they 'wanted' from their church.
This is perhaps the saddest way to loose someone because you realize their entire journey here on earth may be full of the constant attempt to find the perfect church, where all their needs are met. How sad. They truly are church consumers. I pray for the opportunity to show them what a joy serving in the body can truly be!
