What’s it take to plant a successful church? Is it the flash and dazzle of leading-edge marketing strategies, or something more primal?

To hear the experts go on about it, you need a carefully choreographed series of steps, setting a certain kind of a ‘vibe’, get the right a/v combination, make the right music choices, give special attention to greeters and what activities you have for the kiddos … the list goes on.

In other words, to them, building up the Church is neither more nor less than another Western example of building a buzz around a brand and getting the public interested in that product. Kind of like opening a new sports franchise and getting buy-in from the hometown crowd.

That’s THEIR (secularized) idea of building a church. God has a different approach.

To find how HOW it is different, you’ll need to watch the podcast.

Dear Christian: Your Fear Is Full of Crap

by Doug Giles

Beginning in March 2020, many Christians went into lockdown-freak-out mode. Uncut, irrational, unbiblical, and not to mention, unconstitutional, fear gripped many churches and church leaders.

Should pastors publicly repent if they obeyed Fauci in regard to how they conducted their ministry instead of adhering to the clear commands of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords?

That’s a legit question, eh?

Get your copy of Dear Christian: Your Fear Is Full of Crap now. Better yet, grab an extra copy for any petrified pastor who dutifully put obedience to the unconstitutional edicts of Mayor McCheese ahead of obedience to the explicit commandments of the LORD God Almighty.
