Whoa…

This post from Church Marketing Sucks will give you something to think about:

  • Percentage of McDonald’s franchises that did not sell a hamburger last year: 0%
  • Percentage of Ace Hardware stores that did not sell a hammer last year: 0%
  • Percentage of Salvation Army outlets that did not help a needy person last year: 0%
  • Percentage of state universities that did not educate a student last year: 0%
  • Percentage of airlines that did not fly a plane last year: 0%
  • Percentage of WalMarts that did not sell merchandise last year: 0%

Now I know this may cause a knee jerk reaction… Christ isn’t a product, the church is a holy place not a supermarket, etc. I get that. But maybe, just maybe, it’s time the church take its “business” as seriously as any other organization does.
