The grievous shriveling of our church's membership--50 per cent in the last 50 years--may have something to do with our widespread corruption of the gospel: "God so loved the world," into "God so loved the church." Churchianity is a disabling misrepresentation of Christianity.

One consequence of Canadian churches in the 21st century being nearly-silent in their prophetic role is the grotesque and deadly fact that, with all the blessings of life in Canada, we nevertheless join the rest of the have-nations in the diabolically perverse distortion of economic and governmental policy whereby the rich get richer and the middle class and the poor get poorer.
