The unchurched

There is a term that we use in the church world called the unchurched. This refers to people that have never been to church or has left the church for whatever reason. But can we really consider the ones that have left church as unchurched. Also can we really use this term loosely when we have so many churches that are on the internet. I do understand why many people don’t want to be connected to a body of believers if they really have been hurt by another church. I believe we attach a lot of terms and labels without really thinking about the stigma they could leave on the next generation.
