The best of the best from Dakota Voice last week, including: Shirley Sherrod Confesses Her Racism to NAACP; Dems Hatch Plan to Restore Voting Rights to Convicted Felons; Obama Admin: We Lied, Health Care Mandate IS a Tax; Tea Party Racism: Straw Man of the Left; Union Thuggery on Display at Nurses Union Rally; Kristi Noem on Hannity Show; Paper Trail: Journalists Covered For Obama in 2008; and more!
This is another one of those guys who don’t exist: a black Tea Party supporter. Alfonzo Rachel takes the Obama Administration and their allies to task for “behaving stupidly” with the Henry Louis Gates arrest , the lawsuit against Arizona for doing the job the feds refuse to do, and the Shirley Sherrod debacle.
The modern idea of church, or ecclesiology, it seems, is that the church exists as a venue to attract the lost through dynamic programs, performances, and events—the more dynamic the better. A pastor friend of mine referred to this as “theo-tainment.” The problem with this approach exclusively is that a disproportionate amount of the church’s time and resources go into these programs at the expense of making disciples and training the body.
