Why we don't make disciples...

Barry Cooper, of Christianity Explored, asks why we don't focus on making disciples.

He suggests several reasons that are thought-provoking.

Why don't we make disciples ?

Reason 1 - Cheap grace.

Reason 2 - Seeker sensitivity, believer insensitivity.

Reason 3 - Lack of basic church discipline.

Reason 4 - Hiding behind programmes and methods.

Reason 5 - Assumed evangelicalism. 

He's started suggesting a way ahead, but that's for a future post.
