Will They Be Consistent?

For years the belief of the seeker-sensitive movement has been that results can be used to measure success. Any time their approach to 'doing church' has been criticized the response has been 'but look at how many people we have' or 'look at how many Baptisms we've done this year' to justify their approach as if the number of bodies in the seats somehow trumps any other consideration.

Now with things like this beginning to happen, I wonder if we'll find consistency among our seeker-sensitive bretheren? Will they take a church bankruptcy as a sign that what they're doing has not, after all, been correct?

I'm not holding my breath.

Let's Get Rickey!

Do you remember the old Life Cereal commercial?

The kids don't want to eat the cereal because they've heard it's good for them so the enlist the help of "Mikey" their younger brother. "Let's get Mikey" they say and sure enough "Mikey" eats it up.

Rick Warren is the Mikey of inter-faith efforts. Any time they need a Christian voice to lend support to one of these things, he's there to 'eat it up' and lend the impression that all religions are basically the same.

While Life Cereal may be good for you, allowing the world to believe that Christianity is just another religion, not all that different from any other, or that caring for the poor is the Gospel rather than a result of the Gospel most decidedly is not.

Women in the Military

Aside from things like males being responsible for the protection of females rather than being complicit in putting them in harms way, here are 10 more reasons putting women in the military is a bad idea:
