A good offense is to be offensive?

September 25, 2008

This is sick… and truly offensive I just warned you.

Time for Faithful Pastors to Go on the Attack!

I just have three questions…

1. Are we really starving with more churches and bibles in the USA than any other country?

2. Are we supposed to be dependant on our pastors to “feed us”?

3. How is using a picture of a starving man not using pragmatism?

OK… I really have more questions than that… but to me there is a fundamental and foundational misunderstanding of the real issue. It seems that some see that they are free to do anything yet anyone they deem lesser than themselves can do nothing right. This is sick. There is a sickness that is out there and it is from lack of biblical nutrition… in fact the postcard is part of the issue. The meat of the Word is in the “Doing of the Word” not in going to church and sitting in a pew and letting someone spoon feed you every week. Let those pastors attack… it seems that is what they do best.

And yes I get it… but it is so wrong and off base that it is not only offensive, but it is promoting people to not be dependant of Jesus, but on a man. To me this is a perfect example of the promotion of a “man-based” faith that misses the mark completely.

We are to become like Jesus, not like our pastors… even if they are truly great men. Chris Rosebrough seems to think that the answer is keeping people in diapers and not integrating their faith in their life. I say that as anyone who promotes spoon-fed christianity misses that we are to be not just hearers of the Word, but doers.

The milk is at all churches…. it is fed to us from all pastors… If Chris R and Ken Silva really want mature Christians out there… they need to call for doers of the Word and not focus on the milk and superficiality of “Churchianity.”

For what others are saying about this I recommend this post.

The Gospel is of Good News… not of sensationalism… not of scare tactics of this world.
