This says a lot about our world today and can most especially be seen in the construction of churches today. In the past 50 years there has been a great concern with the functionality or usefulness of the building, i.e. it has become the only concern. This same mentality is applied to the building and decorating of churches, but a church is not just there to be “used” by us, rather it is supposed to be “used” by God. The construction of the quality of building and the art that is placed in them tells a lot of the importance of the place. Since skyscrapers are covered inside with all kinds of marble and expensive furnishings, churches have cheap carpeting and the ugliest furnishings maybe its because in the past 50 years we find toothpaste and chewing gum more important than God. Hopefully we will realize that after all God deserves the best that we have to offer and He will reward us for giving it to Him.
