From the chat room over at Real Live Preacher’s new home:
[jamesn] If Christ were to appear right now, what church do you all think he would rest his peace, if any??
[revsparker] i think Jesus might avoid all the churches and head for prisons, slums, and crackhouses…he wouldn’t want to worship, but to serve.
[whatspider] maybe the underground illegal ones in communist countries. if he went to any, it would be those.
[revsparker] maybe churches full of servants…
[whatspider] he’d go to the religious prisoners in sudan, indonesia, china, cuba, etc.
[revsparker] he’d go to the bedsides of people with AIDS.
[whatspider] ] especially those in Africa–40 mill orphaned by aids
[whatspider] he’d check in on those who have been really actually persecuted
[whatspider] he’d visit orphanages
[revsparker] he’d minister to prostitutes and transsexuals
[jamesn]: All of the above to me
[whatspider] he’d go to the coastal areas of thailand, indonesia, sri lanka
[revsparker] he’d go the burning synagogue and the bullet-ridden mosque
[whatspider] he’d find the pedophile priest and the fallen televangelist
[revsparker] Jesus’ church is wherever there is need for Life and Love.
