The Church as an army

A pastor recently said that in 1920, 80 percent of Americans went to church.  IN 1960, it was 60 percent.  Today, only 40 percent go to church.  He further commented, “The church is under attack.”

I was incensed and wanted to jump up and yell, “What do you mean, the church is under attack!  The problem is not the church being under attack ; it is that the church is not attacking!  It’s time to get this army back in the war!”
