Layman's guide to the key drivers of the 21st century church

Seven Solas of the Modern Church

Scott Brown @ http://www.scottbrownonline.com lists the Seven Solas of the Modern Church.

1. Sola Cultura - let culture define church life
2. Sola Successa - let numerical success legitimize activities
3. Sola Entertaina - let entertainment be the guiding principle
4. Sola Edificia - let the edifice be the center of church life
5. Sola Programma - let programs dominate the peoples time
6. Sola Thralldoma – let the people be enslaved by whatever thrills them
7. Sola Processa – let the church be managed by business philosophies and processes

Contrast these with The Five Solas of the Protestant Reformation.
