SBC acquires rights to Gordy Gecko!

Greensboro, NC (Recovering Pharisee Press) The Southern Baptist Convention has bought the rights to Gordy Gecko from GEICO Insurance. They traded Psalty the Singing Songbook, Bibleman and a character to be named later. Gordy Gecko has been brought on to start a nationwide bus tour promoting evangelism and discipleship among SBC churches. The program is called "15 Minutes." It is designed to appeal to younger SBC'ers. The slogan for "15 Minutes" is
"15 Minutes or Less Can Your Soul by Switching to Jesus."
When asked about his new role, Gordy Gecko said,
"It is my job to help spread the woooooord......"
An insider said they hope that Gordy will appeal to the TV age. Gordy Gecko finished his press conference by stating,
"It is my job to save souls for Jesus, I love my job."

Church of Scientology to sponsor a NASCAR Team

The Church of Scientology, the religion for which actor Tom Cruise crusades, will attempt to spread its "Ignite Your Potential" message into auto racing through sponsorship of a race car in one of NASCAR's lowest levels. Read the story here.

Maybe the SBC can sponsor a car too! How about instead of the Busch Grand National, we have all of the Christians form a team against the cults. Think of the possibilites. NASCAR usually races on Sunday--we might find our missing church members. :)

The Problem with labels.....

I have had it up to my neck with labels. When will the church start acting in love to each other? In recent weeks I have seen accusations leveled at people that are un-founded. W hides behind a blog and won't identify who he is. He claims that Dr. Frank Page of Taylors First Baptist Church, Taylors, SC is a "liberal." He actually tried to imply that he condones homosexuality. I can't allow this to go on! Please! Plus Dr. Page is being criticized for standing behind one of his former church members Dr. Rusell Dilday! What good pastor wouldn't stand behind a church member when they are unfairly treated? Last year, Larry Bateman, the administrator at Taylors called me for an interview. Larry was my former boss in Atlanta. He wanted me to become their Adult Pastor. Cassandra and I flew to Greenville and met with the staff and enjoyed a night of worship at their church. I was very impressed with Dr. Page. He has transitioned every church where he has been pastor. He spent a few hours with us and all I can say is he is the real deal. We decided that God was leading us to pastor a church so I had to back out of further talks with Taylors FBC. I promise you Larry Bateman would not be serving at a "liberal" church. I said I would not talk politics on my blog and I won't. Name calling is a problem in Christian circles. If you don't like someone, you call them a name. In my denonomination if you want to ruin a person's reputation, you call them a "liberal" or an "emergent." This is wrong! I've read books by so-called "emergents" and have liked some of what they say and think a lot of it is garbage. I voted for George W. Bush but I don't like everything he has done either. We believers need to quit calling people names! If we don't agree with them, then love them anyway because when we get to Heaven we will spend eternity with them!

How many of the Ten Commandments can you name?

I was looking through some old videos that we made when we planted a church in Atlanta. Here is one that Stuart Delony and I filmed on the coldest day of the year (I am behind the camera). We were starting a series on the Ten Commandments and we wanted to see how many people could name. Check it out here. How many can you name?

Tomrrow is 666!

Should we all stay home? Read the story here, here and here. Hell, Michigan (it is a city) is having a 666 party. The sad thing is that the number is signifcant. I don't think anything will happen tomorrow. But maybe I will stay home! :)

Church apologises to neighbours

The congregation of St Philip's Church in Penn Fields, Wolverhampton, Engand spent Sunday delivering letters of apology to every home in the parish. Check out the story here. Sound like a good plan to me. What do you think?

Al Gore, Preacher Man?

I'll admit, just seeing his name made me laugh! The man "who invented the internet" :) has a new passion. Al Gore is back. Not as a political candidate, but as a Baptist preacher with a moral message. His favorite sermon is about the judgment day that will come upon us if we do not mend our ways and stop contributing to global warming. Read about it here. Check out his new movie here and a clip here. Maybe he could run for SBC Pres and win? How much does his church give to the CP? He could start a nationwide bus tour promoting "Global Warning Awareness and the internet." I wish he cared for un-born babies and the souls of man as he does for mother earth!

Soldier's dad to sue Westboro Baptist Church

It's about time somebody stood up to these evil people! Albert Snyder of York, PA, the father of Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder of Westminster, will sue the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka for unspecified actual and punitive damages, according to attorney Sean Summers of York. The civil suit will claim defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Read the story here.
Summers said it never occurred to the elder Snyder that protesters would be at his son's funeral. "He was hoping for closure, and Mr. Snyder didn't get it,"
That is so sad! I agree with Joe Kennedy that my denomination, SBC, should condemn the un-Christlike actions of these hateful people! Jesus came to love people. He died for those people that Fred Phelps and his group protest. God help us!
