Crumbling walls

Danny sees a great metaphor for the church in decline.

You've titled the post appropriately. I think Danny wasn't thinking about the real foundation of the Church when he used the metaphor and said the foundation crumbled.

I do get the analogy via the visuals. But if a person looks too close the idea falls down, as what the boys were building wasn't something which was ever really considered to be good and successful, and thus a problem when it fell apart.

There are good reasons why there is decline in Christianity in the US. We need to get to where we aren't looking inwards to the church as we've narrowly defined it, to where we are looking outward - seeking the will of God.
