This morning we watched a movie about the persecuted Church around the world. Crazy stuff, let me tell you…
But what really stuck with me was a question we asked after the movie… ‘If our church was attacked, would anybody show up the next week?’
Great discussion followed but the responses we heard were somewhat discouraging. And then THIS question jumped out… ‘If everyone in our church was offered free Reds tickets for next Sunday afternoon, would anyone come to church?’
Our answer was, sadly, a free Reds game would be hard to pass up for a lot of people. And if a baseball game is that influential, what would the threat of death be like?
