Definition of Fat 
(Spiritual Fat)
Allow me to define fat. It involves scores of passive parishioners sitting week after week, soaking up what is in some cases gourmet preaching, but who are still infected with a disease called "spectatorism." This mass of untapped potential is generally educated far beyond their level of obedience, and is not translating Christian theory into practice. Spectatorism generally creates flabby, weak, spoon-fed believers who have grown old, but not up, in the Lord. They know more about church policy than evangelism, and are better acquainted with parliamentary procedure than with discipleship.
