I recently came across this article posted at wnd.com. I remember hearing a speech from the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower about the rise and danger of the “military industrial complex”. This article makes me think about the rise and danger of the “evangelical industrial complex”.
I would agree with most of this article. If you have walked into a “Christian” book store lately you have seen all of the books by Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Andy Stanley, etc. These mega pastors have all become a branding icon rather than simply being leaders of a local church. This is another glaring example of how the “institutional” church has been lead astray from the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ.
