Reason #4 – Inability to satisfy people in all stages of faith development [ part 4 of series ]
Some churches that have gone seeker-sensitive might tend to be lacking in substance in their preaching and teaching. De-churched people who have been re-churched after a long spell, or those who are completely new to the church, get spiritually fed with “the milk of the word”. However, when they have outgrown the early stages of spiritual development or discipleship, they become dissatisfied with the continual feeding of spiritual “milk” because they’re longing for a deeper understanding and walk with the Lord. And of course, there are those who are taught and fed “steak” when what they really need was “milk”. After a time of feeling hungry for a deeper spirituality, they decide to leave. Many of us out there have experienced both these. But where do you find the middle ground in satisfying people in all stages of faith?
