There are times when it is necessary to get back to basic concepts. This is one of those times.
|The Church||The Bar|
|Hymn Singing||Rock and Country Music|
|Bible Preaching||Positive Reinforcement of Self Love|
|The Jesus of the Word||The Jesus who approves of anything you do|
|One’s best clothes||Casual attire|
|Strong families||Swapping partners|
|Drinking a sin||Drinking approved of|
|Dancing a sin||Dancing approved of|
|Smoking a sin||Smoking approved of|
|Bright lights||Dim lights|
|Come to Jesus||Come as you are|
|Sanctuary for worship||Drinks and food at your seat|
|Jesus honored||Jesus accepted as long as you aren’t a bold witness|
You may call it what you want but if it has all the characteristics of a bar it is not a church.
We are going to continue to be a church.
We are not going to turn it into a bar.
