Add:
6. lack of studying the biblical principles of holliness of Christian living
7. Absence of accountability among peers in church
8. Absence of the emphasis on personal relationship with Christ
9. There is no ‘chutomer service’ in the Bible, but pple look for it in Church.

      Wrong David
      But I would admit to #4.

      You mean #3,,,
      They stress numbers and getting them quickly.
      True discipleship is steadiness and consistency over time.
