"We should have started telling people and teaching people that they have to take responsibility to become self-feeders .... We should have taught people how to read their Bibles between services, how to do the spiritual practices .... What's happening to these people [is that] the older they get, the more they're expecting the church to feed them, when, in fact, the more mature a Christian becomes, a Christian should become more of a self-feeder .... We're going to up the level of responsibility we put on people themselves so that they can grow even if the church doesn't meet all their needs." -- Cited in Chuck Swindoll, The Church Awakening, p. 91.
