Go To Church, Get Twins, Vikings Tickets?

(WCCO) Two metro churches are using a unique strategy to get more people to their services -- free sports tickets.

Crossing Church in Elk River is offering those who show up on Saturday or Sunday the chance at season tickets for the Minnesota Vikings.

"I would do anything short of sin to get somebody in the door to check out a Jesus who wants to help them," said the church's Pastor Eric Dykstra.

The church used a similar strategy when it gave out three cars last Easter, which Dyksta says doubled attendance. ...

This is like reverse Indulgences; a church (in effect) paying people to get saved.

American pastors: always good for a laugh.

I thought the Twins ticket was to the movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Danny Devito.
I bet the Vikings arn't really Scandinavian either.
This new type of church is so dishonest.
That's why "I won't be back"

Ever wanted a personal message from the "President"? If so, here's one from the "Ashampoo President":

"Unbelievable! 5 Ashampoo full versions totally free at
www.ashampoo.com/gift...Just enter your coupon code ASH-444LW1 on the page."

Anyone that can use one or all five programs to the Glory of God, help yourself to one or all five of them. I know after testing the "Ashampoo President" that I got them totally free. I downloaded all five.

1Corinthians 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

Galations 2:10 Only that we should be mindful of the poor: which same thing also I was careful to do.

Well Dykstra you lay in bed with the wickedness of American professional sports and you are leading your flock there as well. What are you going to say onn that day?

Dopy is right on.

I happened to listen to Chuck Swindoll this morning by way of WFAX radio on the Internet and as I listened to him, I thought, this sounds like a special message from heaven for everyone, including me, that has commented in this thread so far. I see from the WFAX Internet schedule that there is what I assume is a repeat broadcast of the exact same program I listened to this morning at 7:30 pm this evening.

Jim Lincoln, thank you for the two links particularly the bottom one "Live the Word". What that link led to is one of the best expositions of the relationship between faith and works that I have ever heard, and I have heard some very good ones.

John Y., amazing your works show where your heart is.

James 4
3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.---NASB

John Y., Live the Word.

Hmmm,interesting. Knowing people's hearts and minds are quite easy, actually.

It is called, "a tree is known by it's fruit".

But only when you are regenerate,can a person discern truth.

Thanks John.

I am so glad that Dopy's theology agrees with yours.

"Oh dear that is "Faith" isn't it."

A brilliant answer 2Rist, yes, no doubt I am so stupid that you need to insult me while trying to do something for my, to use your word, "edification".

"PS for your edification "Sports tickets" or other means of allurement are not in the Bible."

Another brilliant answer 2Rist, no doubt you weren't attracted to Christ by the allurement, among others things, of the possibility of going to hell.

"Is Christ Crucified not sufficient in your theology?"

2Rist, I don't have a theology but rather a personal savior, Jesus Christ. How about you do you have a personal savior? If so, I certainly hope it isn't "theology". No body ever stayed out of hell because of their "theology" but rather because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

Because quote
"Two metro churches are using a unique strategy to get more people to their services -- free sports tickets."

Why not trust in God?

Oh dear that is "Faith" isn't it.

PS for your edification "Sports tickets" or other means of allurement are not in the Bible.

Is Christ Crucified not sufficient in your theology?

YOU are using sin Mr Dykstra....

Because....

Rom 14:23......whatsoever is not of faith is sin."
