Comfortably ineffective?

   "In church, rather than rehab people, we just put them in a wheelchair and say, 'We will do everything for you. You don't have to witness to your neighbors. We will send out fliers and do tv shows and evangelize for you. You don't have to counsel your neighbors, just give them the church's phone number.'
   "Now we are saying, 'You be the discipler. You have the Holy Spirit in you, and we want to equip you to reach your neighbors.'"
Francis Chan, pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, CA, and author of Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God, quoted in Christianity Today, October 2009
