Kagawa on Weak Churches

Though they profess belief in the height and depth and breadth of this love, many Christian churches hesitate to let it permeate man’s consciousness and develop a love movement. We must not forget that this hesitancy is due mainly to the history of the Protestant Church and the capitalist society in which it functions. The majority of church organizations today are dependant (sic), unfortunately, on the privileged class of profiteering society… the churches are rendered incapable of taking the conscious life of Christ as taught in the New Testament into their lives. This explains the existence of weak Christian churches and their impotence in the turmoil of the world today.
