What Do We Expect of a Church?

Many Christians today are wondering what is happening to their churches. Why are they not as full as they used to be? Does the Christ message have less attraction today than in earlier years?

Mankind is more involved in a whirl of material activities than it ever was, and this perhaps leaves the individual less time to feel the emptiness of life in matter or to feel man's native attraction to divine Love. But man's native attraction to divine Love has never changed. Appeals made to this native attraction eventually succeed; whereas promises made to the selfish desires of mortals succeed only until the mortal thinks he has found a better way to satisfy those desires.
