    Relevant questions. I doubt they’ll be answered. Today’s narrative is that if you have a church building full of people, that’s all that matters. Things like integrity, character, accountability, honesty, they all take a back seat to attendance and tithes.

    David M,

    You are correct, my friend…but I have to try to ask anyway…

  3. Justin says:

    Thank you for communicating this – I’m appalled any church would allow them to serve in any capacity much less sharing “their testimony”

  4. Michael says:

    Justin,

    We’ll do what we can…it’s truly appalling on many levels.

    I’ve heard it said of preaching, “weak point, pound pulpit”.

    I guess for Mike Rozell a similar thing could be said “when threatened, yell and curse”

    More **** happens in missions than in most other ministries (I think). It’s something about being “on fire” for God, emotional, and always up front sharing “the ministry.” I went to South America with a fairly reputable mission board, with not too many problems (people who were problems were usually sent home if the problem could not be solved). But, I observed some really scary stuff occurring with “independent” missionaries who couldn’t speak the language, didn’t understand the culture, or-worse-tried to manipulate the local people to their own ends.

    The other thing I discovered is that people like REAL missionaries. The kind who swing from vines, dodge bullets, and are always in danger. If you talk about the day to day operations of an online seminary, with monthly meetups to discuss what is occurring in churches, or creating culturally relevant children’s curriculum, people’s eyes glaze over. Give us a real missionary with a shrunken head and a story of cannibals to help us focus!

    what, the burger business isn’t providing a comfortable enough life? Or are taxes, payroll deductions, insurance, workers comp., certifications, licenses, and fees–the honest costs of doing legitimate business–eating up the gravy they’ve no doubt become accustomed to? Oh, that’s right–winter is coming, the cold season where tourists disappear and seasonal burger joints close up for the frosty times.

  9. Michael says:

    fil,

    The gravy train never stops for curs like this…but it will…

  10. filistine says:

    any word on whether they continue to operate the burger stands as a non-profit/ministry organization with volunteer help? That’s how they’d rake it in…

    fil,

    They switched to for profit a year or so ago…it worked for a long time the other way…
