    A California pastor has found a way to take his sermons to young people in Los Angeles without waiting for them to come to him.He's set up a church inside an L.A. nightclub.
    The venue may be a little unorthodox, but the message seems to be connecting with a Hollywood crowd that knows a lot more about partying than praying.

    Does it matter how we spread the message as long as we are spreading the correct message?
    I say what ever reaches people go for it.

    I think that's great. You really should go out to the unchurched instead of waiting for them to come to you. :godisgood:

    I wonder what would happen if more churches had the "whatever it takes" mentality?

    No one would be able to tell the difference between the Church of God and the Chuch of Satan.

    So, the place determines whose church it is? It's all about the location? I disagree. It the church is lifting up Jesus Christ, it should be easy to tell.

    Wow... That's one of the most extreme and unhelpful uses of hyperbole I've ever seen on BaptistBoard.

    Erwin McManus is one of the leading teachers in the current heresy being espoused in the wordl today. The Emerging Church. This heresy is based on the false and unscriptual idea that people will understand the gospel if you dress it up in a worldly wrapping.

    The Bar in this case is such and it dminishes the holiness of God. It presents grace without guilt, identification without transformation. It is based on doxology with little to no theology. The Psychology has determined the methodology rather than scripture.

    This guy supports contemplative prayer born out of the eastern mysticism.

    I agree.:thumbs:

    Which is exactly why we do open air preaching.
