Are You Too Christian for Non-Christians?Rick Segal

Yes, yes yes! This is so good. I remember watching students work so hard to separate themselves from the world that they did not even sound normal anymore. They couldn't discuss culture, always ended every sentence with "if the Lord wills," and were just, well, weird.

The Assemblies of God (U.S.A.) Marks 24 Years of Growth on Cusp of Centennial CelebrationRNS

The Assemblies of God keeps growing while other denominations say they can't because of demographics. Hmmmm.

In this episode of The Exchange, I host Dr. Thom Rainer, President and CEO of LifeWay, in studio to discuss discipleship, family, fatherhood, blogging, biblical church membership and his latest book, Autopsy of a Deceased Church. In this clip, we talk about traits of dying churches. Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.
