Radioactivity not threat to the church

Many men of science look with alarm upon nuclear explosions and warn of the dangers connected with radioactive fallout.
This is certainly an ominous and threatening possibility.
Of concern to me, however, is another kind of “fallout” that is capable of administering the death blow to most any church.
First, there are the “church-hopping fallouts.”
They are church members who fall out of the life of their church and thereafter go hopping from one church to another every Sunday.
Then, there are the “sore fallouts.”
They have fallen out with the preacher, the deacons, the choir and the Women’s Missionary Union. They are sore and they have fallen out. Hence, they are “sore fall outs.”
Finally, we have the “lazy fallouts.”
The only thing they like to exercise in the church is their authority. They will not lift a hand to help but are glad to lift their voices in protest.
And therein lies the threat to many churches. For when it comes to churches and their members, the greatest danger they face is not radioactivity, but inactivity.
