Bringing people to church

“Christians are made strangers of the world by transformation, but they are left in the world that they might bring others to experience the same transformation.

“Those who abandon the stranger concept, who indulge in worldly pleasures under the guise of relating better to society, inadvertently destroy their message of transformation. They may bring people to church. They may even convince them to take the name Christian. But they have not brought them to Christ.”—Love and Nonresistance page 134

Yep. Without transformation—and that means from the inside out—they are not brought to Christ. They can attend as many church functions as they wish, but they are still not "in Christ."
