Do pastors spend too much time searching for the "lost" people instead of appreciating the ones they have?
In my opinion, I think pastors/priests/etc. are too concerned with evangelism and conversion. Most people outside of the church couldn't care less about "finding Jesus" and no amount of kindness or persistence will change their minds. All it does is annoy most people. Further, I think by being too worried about evangelism, they lose sight of the people they already have as part of the church "family." Anyway, thoughts?
FYI -- I am not part of a church at the moment, but I have been on both sides of the fence. I was part of a church as a member and I have had people try to convert me to a religion.
