How to count in the Church

Byassee does a great job here of pulling together many strands into a coherent question: with numbers in mainline churches declining for decades; simultaneous decline in mainline Protestant theology on evangelism, broadly construed; the countermanding growth of evangelical mega-churches, and their very Wesleyan emphasis on discipleship via small group life and accountability to peers in such groups, what's wrong with Methodists & Episcopalians & Presbyterians & others asking about numerical growth?
