    ...now I wonder why the Lord His-self didn't think of this approach? Well, North Carolina still enjoys great tasting Bar-B-Que.


    HUNTERSVILLE, NC (CBS Charlotte) – A hip-hop church opened Saturday night in Huntersville, N.C.

    Pastor Quinn Rodgers of Generation One says his church is targeting a younger audience.

    “We’re trying to reach the un-churched, the de-churched, the folks who have given up on church and are looking for something different, “Rodgers told WBTV.

    Traditional religions hymns will not be sung, instead the congregation will hear a DJ scratching hip-hop beats.

    “We’ve taken the hip-hop culture and we’ve extracted all the negative connotations out of it and we’ve deposited solid Christian doctrine in there,” Rodgers told WBTV.

    Americans between 18 and 29 are less religious than the older generation, according to a study by the Pew Research.

    Some parishioners who worshiped at Generation One on Saturday said they showed up a little skeptic but left feeling refreshed.

    Generation One meets every Saturday evening at 5.

    I'm sure that perhaps a few will inadvertently come to know Jesus through this effort but I doubt very many will. This dude (Rodgers) has already acknowledged that same gender marriage is fine and dandy with him and since he's our Lord's right hand man..., well..., what else can be said?

    This ministry effort can soon become an idol all wrapped up in itself.
