From the Author:

From Stop Bringing Them to Church:

Paradigm shifts are not comfortable, especially when tradition has entrenched itself firmly and refuses to budge. Within these pages are the kinds of things that will get one labeled a rebel, heretic, and in the extreme cases, make people want to kill you.
Now, I don't believe anyone will want to kill me over this book (fingers crossed). My intent is not to go out and write something that's going to make a whole lot of people upset and angry. But I know it will for truth does that. It's its nature. Novelist, satirist, and self-proclaimed agnostic Aldous Huxley nailed it when he said:

You shall know the truth, and the truth will make you mad.

It is my hope that this small work may challenge us all to think more biblically and act more bravely in this cultural climate. This is a time when the edicts, commands, laws, and tenets of the scriptures are whittled down into powerless sound-bites for fast consumption by a society that is becoming more and more indifferent to the word of God, God Himself, or altogether ignored. Nowhere is this more prevalent than among the visible church.


My hope is writing this book is to dispel the myths that accompany the modern church and get back to the plain teaching of the scriptures. This was not written because I love to make friends. It will most definitely not do that for me. It was written because I love the truth. It is my intent that this book inspires the same thing for those that read it.

From the Back Cover:

The Enemy Is In The Camp...And We Let Them In.

Evangelical Christianity is in a crisis. Methods, programs, and protocols have been implemented and utilized without asking the right questions: What is church? Who qualifies for church membership? Can anyone be a part of the Christian community? What does the Bible have to say about it? Is it actually biblical how we do things?

Because of this lack of foresight and dependence, the church has fallen into a disarray of erroneous doctrines and unbiblical practices. Church design is built on cultural moods instead of Bible truth.

In Stop Bringing Them to Church, David Washington lays out a basic biblical blueprint for returning to the scriptures for the church's identity and actions. In it he answers:

  • What is the church of Christ?
  • Why does the church gather?
  • Is church membership for everyone?
  • What is the gospel?
  • What is proper church evangelism?
He also explains:
  • The three fold purpose of the church.
  • Why unbelievers have no business in the church.
  • Why unbelievers put the church in crisis.
  • Why inviting unbelievers to church is disobedient, unbiblical, and unloving.
Stop Bringing Them to Church is a challenge to the traditional church development and modes of evangelism, calling for a paradigm shift that roots itself exclusively in the word of God for a more reflective model of the biblical church.
