“Virtual Discipleship?”

2 November 2009

You’ve got to be kidding me.

Those of you with links to the now-immolated Paramount Terrace Christian Church (PTCC) will recognize one of the megachurches to which this article refers.  Must be pretty heady stuff to make the FoxNews home page.  Here’s a quote from a staff member at that church:

“We live in a day and age and a culture where people go to school online, bank online, date online and do other things online,” said Kurt Ervin, who oversees the Internet campus for Central Christian Church, based in Henderson, Nev. “Why not create a platform for them to go to church online?”

Why not, he asks?

Shall we start with A, or Z?

    After I barf, how about trying “A” and “D and G”? This suggestion is a Docetic/Gnostic Apple. The Church is the body of Christ–incarnational. Online leaves out at least taste, touch, smell, flesh and blood. Real food–bread and wine, dinner on the grounds. Incense offered to God.

    B–blockheaded.
    C–creepy.
    E–empty.
    F–foolish.
    H–headcase.
    I–idiotic.
    J–juvenile.
    K–krap.
    L–looney.
    M–monstrous.
    N–nonsense.
    O–oleagenous.
    P–painful.
    Q–queer.
    R–repent.
    S–sadly superficial.
    T–technoswill.
    U–unexceptional.
    V–vapid.
    W–weak.
    X–xcruciating.
    Y–yawn.
    Z–zero.

    This suggestion is silly and irrelevant and “sigh” sad. Worse than the drive thru church. At least there you can get fries.

    Blessings!

    Who knows?

    If an online community can get people to try a real flesh and blood church and or a small bible study discipleship group then it’s a good thing.

    Otherwise it’s kind of hard to ignore the fact that if you take the bible seriously The New Testament is all about churches and how people interact with God through The Holy Spirit and each other.
