Sacred-Secular Divide

From Brian McLaren’s foreword to Steve Chalke and Anthony Watkis’ book Intelligent Church:

… too often our churches have become human
warehouses, where people are gathered and stored so that they can be delivered
after death to heaven with minimum loss, spoilage, rust, rot or breakage. These
air-conditioned warehouses are equipped with every comfort – from padded seats
to a kind of religious muzak – so that those who enter will be happy and never
want to leave until they are shipped to their final destination.

No wonder we have a sacred-secular divide in church thinking.
