The Pensees blog has an article entitled “The Seeker-Insensitive Movement.” In it the author identifies the phenomenon of Church Hopping as another name for Backslinding.
In a very insightful quote the author states:
The Seeker-sensitive leaders are naive to think they are getting mostly un-churched. They’re getting mostly de-churched. They’re getting the coddled second-generation church-goers who know nothing of Christianity except that they have to “do church.”
What do you think? Does the Seeker-sensitive approach simply fill a church full of “second-generation” christians who are looking for a less intrusive worship experience? Or maybe the seeker-sensitive approach does attract “unchurched Charlies.” Weigh in in the comment section of the blog.
