Who knew a banana could stir up such a buzz? My previous post with Mr. Banana has hit the web like a rocket. All I did was watch Web Junk on VH1 and stick it on here. But apparently it had not made the web rounds yet. So yesterday the visitors to my blog went from 250ish a day to 4500 on Sunday alone. Now here is the kicker. This blog is being linked to by Atheist blogs across the world. All coming to see that video. But they are coming here. Into our Ragamuffin Soul. Some Christians have emailed me asking me why I placed the video on the site if it made Christians look stupid? I simply told them because we are. And we are blind. And if we keep ignoring the fact that we are pulling stunts like that we have no shot. Yea it made me laugh. But it pisses me off too. Salvation is here. And we need to start sharing it with a boldness that is relevant. And I am not speaking of generational relevance. I am speaking of cultural relevance. For every 1 Rob Bell, there 100 Mr. Bananas. We have to catch up.
Oh. One last thought. Why is it so easy to find crap like this online but the pimps of spiritual communication give us nothing to place online? Bell, Stanley, Giglio, Erwin? Just give us 2 minutes of truth to share on our blogs. Not your whole messages. And give it to me free please. Any opinions?
