Not dead yet

Sometimes it’s not over! Here’s a bit from the first scene of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

While humorous, it does remind us that we shouldn’t rush to pronounce death on anyone, or anything.

Lots of things recently have been pronounced “over,” and gone on to tell about it.

Sometimes churches look dead too. But things are not always what they seem.

What else have you seen in the church world that is “back” from a near death experience?

  1. Hey, I just wanted to say that I attned a satellite church on Oklahoma City, OK called Life Church. I do not see anything wrong with this approach. I think video teaching is just as effective as a pastor who regularly speaks to his congregation. I do have to admit that you do not see the main pastor in person, but the teaching he does teach on the video is anointed and does help a person mature spiritually in the LORD if that person decides to apply that particular message to his/her life. In the church I go to, we have small groups, children’s workers, and a whole host of other volunteer workers to help run the satellite campus plant. I will be honest with you in what I am about to say. I do believe God is using satellite churches to get His Word out just as He is using Christian television networks. The reason why some of the satellite churches have non-traditional music as their style of worship is because that is how God wants them to lead worship. It does matter what style of worship you have to worship God with. Worship is worshipping God from heart and spirit not according to the particular style. These satellite churches are not using all this mainstream stuff to bring glory to themselves saying stuff like, “I want to have a satellite church so I can be proud and happy with a really huge congregation.” They are using the mainstream technology so they can glorify God with it and reach out to the people by bringing glory to God. The Bible makes it pretty clear that whatever we do, we do it all for the the glory of God. So,in my opinion, I believe God is a doing new thing by using satellite churches to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ around the earth.
