Marty Schoenleber, Jr. (a.k.a. ChosenRebel), prophetically suggests that six things are likely to be true about any church that exists in North America:
- We are not as mature as we think we are.
- We are not as bold as we ought to be.
- We are not as prayerful as we ought to be.
- We are not as generous as we could be.
- We are not as focused as the needs of our time demand.
- We are not as deep as we need to be.
According to Marty, these six things are true whether your church is new or old, organic or traditional, large or small, meets in a building or a house, in a community center or under a tree.
