Doesn't the church exist to comfort the souls and consciences of believers? New or old design the focus should be Christ. A good test for this is to invite a group of non-believers [unchurched] as a focus group....show them the designs of churches and have them give their thoughts opinions to questions like this: + What type of business/organization do you think belongs in this place? + What is the first thing you think of when seeing this place? + This facility is designed to be a Christian church....What other uses would you imagine taking place here? Their answers should be enough to tell you how best to design a building that will be purposeful in delivering the central message of Christ-Crucified.

So, they're building another one? Seriously? They're can't be anything right about that in America. There is currently over $238 Billion in church edifices in America sitting empty on average 164 out of 168 hours a week. And, you guys dare to preach about good stewardship? We need more edifices? Seriously? Isn't the reason they're still spending countless millions and millions more on new edifices is because they're incapable of working with other mega-star pulpiteers because of their EGO - Elmer Gantry Obsession? If mega-churches are so "successful" then why is the culture getting darker and darker by the day? What identifiable measures can you give beyond the attendance that they are having any real impact on the culture? Research shows we only remember 5% of what is lectured to us. Yet, these mega-churches center the greatest amount of time, energy, and money on getting people to answer a Sunday morning Simon Says cattle call to hear a lecture. Have an explanation? Please, wake up and smell the coffee. Take it Home where the heart is, where it started, and where it belongs!
