Considering the controversy of the Christian Music and Christian Sub-culture posts, I thought that I would just let this issue go . . . Nah! You got to take a look at my friend Bob Practico’s top ten list on his blog: 10 Warning Signs That a Christian Is Isolating from the Culture. It is great! Some of you will love it. Thanks Bob. Now you are going to be in trouble!

      LOL, That’s a great list!!! Funny how you’ve turned your attack on Christian music into Christians attacking the world in general. But still it’s a great list.

      With regards to Bob’s #1: (1) Your church is so big it offers everything you could possibly want or need – i.e., gym, restaurant, bookstore, pool, etc.
      (After all, the less contact with the heathen, the better.)

      Innovative church facilities don’t have to mean “less contact with the heathen”…our church uses it to connect with people who would be reluctant to accept an invitation to a “church” service. We recently opened a new, off-campus, multi-use facility in the midst of a business park. It has a coffee cafe, wide screen t.v.s, multi-purpose meeting rooms, band practice room, a place to play floor hockey or shoot hoops, etc…etc… it’s open to everyone and we have found it to be the perfect place to invite people from outside of our church. Recently we had a lunch-time cookout and invited all the business people in the surrounding offices to stop by for a burger or hot dog as a gift from their new neighbors. No sales pitch or information handouts, just lunch on us. A good time was had by all and some new friendships were established.
