Everyone knows how it feels to be objectified. Everyone. But some are more objectified than others, like women and those of the LGBTQ community for example.

The church, when it succumbs to the subtle lure of power, objectifies people generally. People become commodities. Numbers. Members. Objects. They become something to reach out to, to convert, to assimilate into the institution, to belief and behavior modify, to manage, and to get to heaven. They’ve become targets.

It’s when people are objectified that they inevitably get hurt. It’s when people become a mission that they are dehumanized and sometimes even destroyed.

    Yep, when I was in college I was involved in Campus Crusade for Christ (Inc.). It got so big and became about sending more people on mission this year than last, more small groups, more activitiies…more more more of everything except Jesus.
