The Church


"The early church grew not primarily via miraculous events or mass conversions but through social networks of many believers communicating the message, for movements that continue to grow 'discover new techniques for remaining open networks, able to reach out and into new adjacent social networks' (Stark). Movements that die become closed to outsiders, unwelcoming, and disconnected, forming their own subculture without need of others. Thus the institutional church, when it becomes inward focused, plants the seeds of its own destruction in its efforts to focus more on its subculture than those in need of Christ." - Alvin Reed [ref]
