Why Would I Ever Join This Church? May 21, 2017

Why Would I Ever Join This Church?

I realize pastors aren’t coming to me for advice on how to get butts in the seats at church… but I’ll go ahead and say it anyway:

This isn’t the way to do it.

ComeAndJoinPersecution

Umm… no thanks. If your church sign could double as a recruiting tool for an Islamic terrorist group, you should try a different marketing campaign.

It appears this sign is a real concept (though I’m not sure how many churches actually put it up). In other words, it was intended to elicit this reaction.

So why would anyone want to join a church where people get killed every 5 minutes? Because, the sign’s designers say, “when a lost world sees Christians preferring to die than dishonour their Lord — they see faith that’s real.”

… or we see a bunch of people making even more irrational decisions than usual.

In any case, I’m not sure if those numbers are accurate (here’s the apparent source material), but I have no doubt Christians are genuinely persecuted in large numbers in many countries.

I would add, however, that not a single one of those countries is the United States, no matter how many God’s Not Dead movies they make.
