Soong-Chan Rah writes:
"How easy it is for an American Christian to finding the right church the way we approach buying cereal at the local supermarket? We're looking for all the right ingredients and rejecting churches because they don't have our style of worship, our style of preaching, or our type of people. We're purchasing a product rather than committing to the body of Christ. We are captive to the Western, white captivity of the church in our materialistic and consumeristic bent, more accurately reflecting American culture and society than Scripture."

*Note* – I don't agree with everything Rah writes in this book. In fact, much is quite brashly said in this book but I think that this quote hits us dead on.
