Got Change for a Blog?
Found this on a blog this morning
“Christians, Christians… not to worry… not to worry… the war is going well — we’re doing an excellent job! The infidels are on the run. Just keep doing what you’re doing, the way you’re doing it.”
“Those loud noises you’re hearing in our U.S. cities are not explosions of crime, injustice, filled jails, aborted children, racism, hatred, divorce, fatherlessness, declining education, addictions of all kinds, adultery, joblessness, egotism, Enronism, pornography, consumeristic church, segregated churches, prayerlessness… nor millions falling off into hell daily.”
“I tell you… not to worry… not to worry… Those loud noises are only the sounds of our outgoing mortars of ‘personal choice’, tolerance, syncretism, corporate success, cultural pride, denominational pride & favorite worship style… just to name a few of our WMD. Keep the faith. No changes. Continue to march. Our asynchronous strategy will win the day.”
“So long for now. Thank you for hiring me — I needed just such a job. I will try to please you with all my reports, so stay tuned for future encouragements.”Bagdad Bob

Sadly this may seem to have an element of truth to it! AS churches are closing and the world predicts the end of the western church within a generation, I heard that the UK Anglican churches response to this has been to double the number of bishops as their church attendance plummets.
Fortunately though this is not the whole story. God is restoring his church, movements like Newfrontiers are producing vibrant lifefilled multicultural churches around the world. The Alpha course continues to mushroom and allows thousands of people to discover that real Christianity is nothing like the image we see in the media.
I believe that the church will rise again from the ashes and it may well seem as miraculous as the idea that Sadam might retake baghdad, but unlike him the church has weapons of mass salvation!
