EPIC FAIL: Who wouldn’t go to church for $1,000?

Okay, so I know that I bribe you to come check out my site with free giveaways (check out the sidebar — not to many people have entered, which means that you’ve got a good chance!), but I think it’s a little different when you offer cash prizes for people who go to church.  I mean, what do we want people to be focused on at church?  The opportunity to win $1,000 or the glory of Jesus Christ?  In Christianity Today, it seems to be the former.  This is what happens when we let culture define the church.

1 Timothy 6:6-10, “Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.  But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.  But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”
