Penthouse now into Christian Dating…

May 15, 2008

I did a double take when I saw this article… that Bigchurch.com is own and operated by, of all people Penthouse.

Here is a bit from the article:

BigChurch offers dating services, Bible search and commentary in four different languages, and boasts half a million Christian members worldwide, though a job posting on the site, the high-salaried requirements for which presume a certain comfort level with adult content, boasts 8 million active members. A footnote at the bottom disclaims any expectations of real-time numeric accuracy, though.

I personally do not think dating services are that great an idea… though I know a few that use Eharmony… but still have not found that “right” one. But this was sort of strange as I understand you can do Bible searches and other “Christian” services… ( had to add “Christian” in there as some might have their minds still in the gutter.)

Now some might think people like me who are “emergent/emerging” would be excited at how relevant this is… but really this is what happens when Christians are not relevant and promote Jesus as a business. The world does not take us serious. But they do see us a marketable.

Ken Silva raises missing the point to a new art form

December 27, 2007

There is a post by Ken Silva at xxxchurch.com who help people with porn addiction. This ministry has helped many people and has even helped some porn-stars find Christ and leave the porn industry. Now, I may not agree with some of their tactics but I do see real fruit coming from this ministry.

But Ken seems to think that Jesus does not love porn-stars or people addicted to porn…

Here is part of what Ken Silva aka “Comment Author proporn Comment Time Apr 11th 2007″ (interesting name that Ken Silva chose….) had to say:

“Since this supposed XXXchurch is quite a titillating and very questionable area of “ministry,” which young people would probably think is “cool,” I began to wonder if Rob Bell was involved in some way. Was I surprised to find out that Rob Bell “knew these guys.” Nope. Did it catch me off guard that Rob had been the one who would be instrumental in bringing, ahem, exposure to their “work” for Christ? O, most definitely not! Somehow I just knew Bell would be at the bottom of this spiritual sewer. And sure enough, clever Rob would be the one to come up with the catchy li’l title “Porn Sunday.””

Ken was hoping to “catch” these “rebellious” emergents in all their vile nastiness… yet it seemed to backfire.

And why had Ken not really pointed this out? Because he would rather continue in the sin of slander against people and ministries that state the truth.

Be sure to read all the 21 (real nasty and rebellious) comments… and you will see the only nasty one is Ken Silva himself.

Blessings,
iggy
