Big Business

Coming Soon to a Church Near You demonstrates how marketing is 'catching on' to the church audience behind the doors of the church.

"Twenty-five years ago, there were fewer than 50 churches in the United States that attracted more than 2,000 people each week. Today, there are more than 1,200. Many boast professional-quality sound systems, large-screen projection systems and comfortable seats that rival those of any commercial theater. Most also have bookstores or gift shops."
I might add that the changing of money and the availability of doves for purchase are also a growing industry within the church.
The rest of the article further turns my stomach.

I read the article and my stomach likewise turned, leaving the copy of The Purpose Driven® Life that I was reading covered in vomit.

I think you owe me a couple of tickets to the new Left Behind® movie.
