Porn Sunday and Other Heretical Teachings

When I was growing up I was afraid of other churches. I would hear about the Baptist church down the road and how they used an organ. I felt sorry for them, and prayed that God might overlook their folly so they could go to heaven. In fact, my best friend Melissa went to a Baptist church, and I was deeply worried that we wouldn't be together when God's judgement came. And of course there were others I was concerned about. Apparently these other churches didn't even use the Bible! Those Methodists, Presbyterians, and Community Church people. You know who I'm talking about.

What naivete! Where did these thoughts come from? For the past year I've been peering in to other churches via the Internet and have been shocked by the messages I've heard. They're good! In fact, they are typically better than anything I've ever heard in my life. They are more relevant to my life, to society, and do not seem like trite, tired messages.

So to give you a sampling of what I'm talking about here are some lessons I really like from three different churches:

Jacob's Well (Kansas City)
What is Forgiveness
Becoming Abolitionists

Porn Sunday - LifeChurch.TV (local to Edmond, OKC)


NorthPoint
Listing of Messages

You know, I think I may attend one of these churches here soon. Don't worry. I'll say a special prayer beforehand.
