Interesting article on how people hold back the church. Below is a great paragraph.
"Nowhere in the New Testament do we find any teaching or indication that the body of Christ is to center only on those who make up its membership. That is not to say members are not important; they are! But to focus only on members will eventually lead to death: members die, move away, and drop out. Then what? By that time, it may very well be too late to change course."
