Eugene Peterson has written, "A consumer church is an antichrist church."
Here are some things I have written about Performance-Based Churches and Consumer Churches. (The two go together: church leaders must put on a good show so the people will keep coming and buying it.)
The Entertainment-and-Performance-Driven Church is Like a Drug-Addicted Athlete (The Presence-Driven Church)
Pastors Don't Need to Be Awesome, Just Faithful
Elemental Chaos and the Presence of God (The Presence-Driven Church) [Note: the false self has a performance-driven orientation.]
