Christianity the Consumer Product (Part II): Selling Jesus Out (TCM)

Question, when did Jesus stop being enough? At what point did we feel that God needed our help keeping members, or that God even wanted to keep every member?

Don’t get me wrong, in every place I’ve been I’ve been one of those people pushing for the church I am attending to update and become current both with music and with technology.
