God's Family Life Center

Over the past 30-40 years, we’ve seen an influx of Family Life Centers cropping up among churches of Christ as an adjunct to the Lord’s church. However, the New Testament is silent regarding Family Life Centers being an approved adjunct to the purpose and function of the Lord’s church (Luke 19:1-10 – focusing on vs. 10).

Brethren, there is no command, example, necessary inference, or expediency authorizing Family Life Centers (see article).

In his book entitled, “The Spirit of Liberalism“ (Publishing Designs, Inc., 2001), 188-189, brother Frank Chesser brings out the following points regarding Family Life Centers:

Family life centers are monuments to the flesh. They are indicative of modern society’s propensity for materialism, pleasure, and self-indulgence. They are shrines to the “me” generation. They constitute a monumental misuse of God’s money laid aside for spiritual purposes.

So we ask, “Where can God’s Family Life Center be found if not in the church?”
