Yes.

The good news, without the inconvenient repentance part.

one person's possibly uninformed statement ~ and that triggers a rant.

Could be ~ maybe it isn't. There is insufficient evidence in this piece to condemn that particular megachurch, but let's say they believe in abortion in there ~ they'd not really be Christian in the first place, so the rant is wasted.

Anyone have any real information on this story or is it just something written according to a formula.

Not to be cynical, but we are asked to condemn these people on third or fourth-hand testimony.

I can assure you that my “Non-denominational” + Megachurch is not watered down Christianity and we are not afraid to offend the Godless. Sounds like you are judging us all. Sad!

Painting with a pretty broad brush aren’t you?

>>>“Non-denominational”+Megachurch= watered down Christianity afraid to offend the Godless.

WOW! Talking about throwing the baby out with the bath-water. How about this: If you are interested...freepmail me and I will give you the website of my "mega-church." There...you can watch our teacing pastor from just Wed night (or any night) offend the Godless. You can also watch our senior pastor as he offends the Godless...by preaching the gospel the way the apostles did. OR...if you are in the area...you can come into our connection center. PRETEND you are Godless and see if you don't get offended.

Sitting in a small church where the preacher does nothing but preach the same sermon to "the choir"...and doesn't reach anyone for the Gospel doesn't make you right. I hear SO MANY people talk like you.

I simply ask them: How many people have YOU led to Christ this month? This week? How many people have placed their faith in Christ because of YOU? For me...in the last few weeks its been 5. I am in touch with all of them and discipling them. One of them was gloriously saved after a suicide attempt (a real one...not a fake-out).

Are you leading people to Christ...or just being critical?
