Madness. Pure madness. Some churches will do anything for press and media coverage. Methinks this one went a teeeeeeeny bit far. Just a bit.
Jesus died on the cross for you and you slowed down to honk your horn for Jesus. Fair trade, right?
An Old Hickory church is offering a drive-thru Good Friday service until midnight.
North Point Community Church is set up inside a former bank building on Donelson Avenue. From midnight Thursday to midnight Friday, people can drive up to the building to drop a burden or sin at the first window. Then they can pull up to the second window and receive a blessing.
Church members said they hope this will be a bright spot in someone’s busy day. “We want people to know we care because we know Jesus,” said church member Lee Fesler.
They want this to be a “bright spot?” It’ll be a blur. It’s a freaking drive thru.
The dumbing down of Christianity. That’s what it is. At some point you make things so “convenient” that it ceases to be worship or prayer.
I wonder if you order the supersize Jesus you get a toy.

Pretty soon it will be so convenient that all you will have do to get into heaven is say a little prayer asking Jesus to come into your heart….. And there ya go, you're in!

Hey the world already thinks that Christianity is dumb so why not dumb it down? By the way, you should look up the story about a church in MN which was giving away televisions, 3D Nintendos, etc during Easter to get people in the door. Here is the link: http://kstp.com/article/stories/S2079632.shtml?cat=0
Things like this perpetuate the dumbing down of Christianity.

I've posted about this.
I think it was an "April fish".

this is not dated "1st April" like the other one I had read!
I still can't believe this is true, though…

and then they get onto us about confessing to a priest in a confessionail!

Hahaha…that is the DUMBEST thing I've ever heard. What has this world come to?

Can you get fries with that?

Maybe next year you'll be able to "Text" your sin…I mean, with gas prices going up, who should have to drive anywhere to do this?

It actually sounds like deep down they are desiring the Sacrament of Confession. I mean aren't the minimal basics here: leave your sins, receive a blessing? Obviously this thing is a very perverted and disgraceful mimicry, though. Somewhere inside they desire what is made full and graceful in the Catholic Faith.
