Disciples or Consumers?

A question I’ve been wrestling with recently is ‘how do we make sure we are making disciples and not just people who know the ‘right’ theology’?

I know a lot of people who think they know what it means to be a Christian. They know the orthodox views and they definitely know what is not orthodox. They know they should read their bibles, pray, go to church etc but I look at them and don’t see the praxis.

Within my youth work I wonder how we know we are making followers of Jesus rather than people who are gaining more head knowledge.

Jesus didn’t seem to care too much about head knowledge and when he did it was to correct those who thought they knew it all. T

It was faith and action that defined a disciple.

Are we creating disciples or are we creating right thinking christians?
