Churches build on state-of-the-art facilities
Kurt Williams of T&W Church Services of Indianapolis, leads project development efforts for churches. Williams said churches have undergone a transformation in the past 20 years.

On one hand is a theory that people basically live their lives in three places: home, work, and in fellowship with one another.

On the other hand is how worship, and as a result, church sanctuaries, have evolved. No longer does a minister simply stand behind a podium and preach. Decades ago, using a microphone and speakers to amplify the sound was considered church technology.

"The technology that we're putting into those spaces is phenomenal," Williams said, noting that sound and video systems are the new norm. "Worship is now an experience, and it's an experience you have to reach multiple senses. I think that's a step to reach the society where we are. ...

Opps let me say one more thing - not all building is bad.

If God does tells you to build something, you better do it (read about Noah & the thing God told him to build), but if its your own idea, it could be a bad thing (for you and others around you).

I think lots of folks need to apologize - click on my link to see an example of an apology to the world. Just a regular guy who when convicted by God, said sorry to the world for doing his own thing. Very thought provoking.

Love ya,

steve

Wow.
I wonder if anyone asked God about that 3.5m debt? They probably only advertise to those that make $30K - $80K a year.
Gee isn't that showing partiality?
Going after only the rich & those who have money? Seems to me that lots of "christians" need to read James 2:1-12.
Imagine judgment day...
Jesus: Did you do what I commanded? Breaking the yokes of oppression, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, taking in the poor wanderer & setting the captives free from sin, addiction, etc?
Mega-church Pastor: No, not exactly but we can seat 3,000 people comfortably, with dolby 5.1 surround sound...
Jesus: Ummm.... (followed by an eerie silence)
(Note: read the parables of Jesus - the sheep & the goats, the virgins, the talents, vineyard, etc - it will help in preparing for the "final exam").
Keep praying that God will continue to draw His remnant closer to Him till He comes.
Love you all,

Those who think they have God but don't tend to be
more succeptible to mysticism and subjective experience
to make up for the real lack of true blessings enjoyed
by those that truely belong to God.

Like the rich young ruler who thought he was righteous
but was still promted to solicit Jesus regarding his real
perceived lack of peace/contentment/(salvation?).

I see this EVERYWHERE in our modern/post-modern "Christian"
society...and it's REALLY sad!

How sad we have lost the meaning of worshiping our wonderful, awesome God. "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth." John 4:24. There is nothing that can compare to getting into His presence, the time when I get close to Him, reading His word and allowing the intimacy of God to fill me. How can we feel His presence with jumbotron screens projecting worship leaders singing out so-called 'Christian' music, pastors strutting across the stage like Mick Jagger, and His word being nothing more than a 'feel good' pick-me-up? Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus...

"Worship is now an experience, and it's an experience you have to reach multiple senses."

A vital point. Sensual manipulation, not intellectual edification, is what modern churches of all stripes do (to varying degrees). This is in accordance with what Soren Kierkegaard taught, that sincerity in religion matters more than doctrine & truth.

Of course, he could not avoid using logic to make his case!
