Ok, now i have seen one of the most ridiculous things around regarding getting people into church. I read a news report that told about a church in Georgia that put up a sign advertising free gas!
Seems that each time someone “visits” their church they get a free raffle ticket with the opportunity to “win” one of two $500 gas cards. What is this…elementary school where we have to bribe people to sit in a church service? This is a sad state of affairs when people don’t attend church for their spiritual well-being…but for some kind of a bribe.
Are there not better ways to impact a community spiritually than using gas cards to draw them into the church to hear the word of God? What do you think about this practice of bribing people to step into a church?
