weekend Christianity

Jeremy Hill and I were talking last week about our friends from Trinidad visiting us. He said something that I think is really important. Jeremy said, "I think they would be disappointed." I knew what he meant. There is a large gulf between the commitment levels of our Trini friends and the average church goer in the American South. Our cultural brand of religion is unique and missionary travel reveals it. There was a quote from Jimmy Draper in the Baptist Record that further highlights this. Draper said -

It's interesting - the kind of weekend Christianity we have would be unknown in the New Testament. It would be unknown in most of church history.

It's time to go old school!
