Nathan Finn Wonders If The SBC Has A Future

I had heard about this post written by Nathan Finn last week but I waited to read it. Truthfully, I was not sure if I wanted to read it. I really don’t want to consider the possibility that the SBC is unhealthy but it is a fact that we can no longer ignore.

If you have not done so already, read Nathan’s post and let me know what you think. Do you agree with his assessment or do you disagree? Why?

    Membership is a fautly, bloated statistic. The average worship attentance is much more reflective of the health of the SBC or lack thereof. The average weekly worship attendance is reported as 6.1 million, which means that, on any given Sunday, almost two thirds of our members aren’t in church. Is that just a coincidence, or is it a glaring discrepancy? Not only that, but the weekly worship attendance reported by the churches in 1980 was slighly more than 7 million, which means that what is probably our most valid measureable growth statistic shows that we are in at least as steep a decline as the UMC. We’ve lost 2 million people since 1980 to their 3 million.
