From FoxNews, Sunday, January 13, 2008: 'Give Us a Shot': N.C. Church Hands Out Shot Glasses at Bars Sunday, January 13, 2008 Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — To get people to attend his new church campus, Robbie McLaughlin is sending his message out to where the people are. Next Friday, staffers from Next Level Church of Matthews will go to bars in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte to hand out shot glasses which ask patrons to "give us a shot" and bear the slogan, "Real church for real people." The idea is to draw people to the Ballantyne campus, which opens next month. 'Give Us a Shot': N.C. Church Hands Out Shot Glasses at Bars Instead of heeding Christ's command... Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. the church is bringing the world into the church by using worldly techniques and gimmicks to bring people into the church. Whatever brings a person into church, will keep that person in that church....in this case it's the promotion of alcohol. James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
