Rob Bell said something interesting today.
He was slamming on Christian “rank lists” that are out there.
He said he heard that there was this “Christian Organization” that was ranking “Christian local churches” from 1-50.
I am going to paraphrase, but I assure you this is almost verbatim…
“This organization that is ranking these churches needs to put down the crack pipe”
“If you are on this list your goal should not be to be on it, it should be to get off it.”
“Does the Bible not teach the churches followers that the last shall be first, and this is no exception.”
So, in the most civilized way possible…
What do you think about these sorts of lists?
