The God Ghetto

I have to agree with Gavin Richardson and John the Methodist:
I cannot remember if I have talked about mychurch.org or other separate "clone" sites that try and give a "church friendly" replication of what is popular in culture. My personal perspective is to say, those are well and good, but, Christ didn't do all his preaching/teaching/discipling within the confines of the walls of the temple. God in the Old Testament wasn't exactly pleased when people made the temple his "home." they moved outside to where the people were. So I’m somewhat discouraged again to see the incarnation of another clone. "God Tube"
Yup. The way to be "in the world" but not "of the world" is not to recreate what the world does in a separate Jesus friendly area. That is not "in the world." Being in the world but not of the world means taking Christ to the Christless. It means putting Christian videos up on YouTube, not creating a GodTube just for our own purposes.
