Jesus Fails Church Growth 101

In what is a fairly confounding passage of Scripture, Jesus seems to say and do things that would confound modern church growth experts. Just when large crowds were following after Him, Jesus teaches that they should "hate" their mother and father, that they must count the cost of following Him-- and that they must take up a cross.

So when it comes to church and growth, is it always true that if people are "buying the product" it must necessarily then be good? What is it costing you to follow Jesus? Take a look at the Scripture for the day and join us for a look at how Jesus fails Church Growth 101.
