Chuck Colson Denounces Therapeutic Church Model

Here is a paragrah from an article I read today. I have GREAT respect for Chuck Colson ( who was former aide to President Richard Nixon and is the creator or the VERY helpful Prison Fellowship. Here is the quote...

"The church has fallen into a therapeutic model, says one prominent evangelical. In an interview with Time magazine, Prison Fellowship founder Chuck Colson denounced the "feel-good kind of Christianity" he sees being promoted in churches.

"It believes its job is to make people happy and take care of their problems," said Colson, also author of The Faith: What Christians Believe, Why They Believe It, and Why It Matters.

But the church's job, he noted, is to make people holy."
