Only $399.95 !!!

here were my thoughts:

maybe i should be more concerned about barriers than i am.

wanting people to have a genuine connection with a god…and wanting to have a bigger church… are not necessarily the same thing.   the targets can easily become confused.

i have never been comfortable with with reducing “church growth” to a series of principles to be followed…even if they do work in some cases.

the size of the church is not always reflective of the health of the church.

healthy big churches and healthy small churches do church differently…but both want to see people have genuine, life-changing connections with god.

i wonder if this guy would send us a free set of these CDs,  if he knew we didn’t have an extra $399.95 laying around?

just thinking.

  1. If you order within the next 30 minutes, he will throw in a bonus CD about how to finally take advantage of the prosperity gospel!!!

  2. You need to check your spam filter Mike… E-mails like this deserve to be placed there…

    Scott has a point here, this is way too infomercial here. There has to be a 30 minute program to push this… Wonder who could co-host this show?

  3. “God-sized growth”? Like the huge amount of people who God was able to call out of Sodom and Gomorrah? Or the big group on the ark? Or all those people that Jeremiah saved? Or think about all those guys surrounding Jesus after he died!

  4. The internet is a great tool. when you do a search for the CD’s, #1 is the Amazon location #2 is this blog.
    and
    I asked requested a gratis copy for my father in laws church.

  5. My favorite part is that “cooperating with the Spirit” and “spiritual readiness” are the last two out of a list of 15.
