The church was a place to socialize and fellowship. The world is evolving to a place where people don’t feel the need to congregate because we can connect with many people sitting in our living rooms. We don’t have to leave the comfort of our homes to hear a sermon.
As far as not being inclusive, I think the church needs to do a better job at teaching God’s words. No one likes to be told that their lifestyle is wrong but there is a way to do it that they will respect.
There church likes to vilify the obvious sins that we can see while covering up the sins that people are engaging in behind closed doors. This hypocrisy has ruined the church. Sin is sin and we should all be held to the same standards which means we ALL should be welcomed into church because the Bible says we are born into sin. Therefore no one should be excluded.
