Seeker-driven, relevant churches employ a multitude of gimmicks in order to draw people in and spawn a big crowd. We’ve seen horses in church. We’ve seen seeker-driven pastors ride onto the pulpit on motorcycles, we’ve seen the granny rap, the mosh pit, and the list goes on and on. Well, now a church in Greenville, South Carolina has employed “poop” talk to draw in the masses.
My question is this… Does this pastor really think talking about poop is going to draw big crowds? Seriously?
This is what happens when pastors forsake the gospel and turn to gimmicks. There’s no low too low for them to sink to.
Read and weep.
|GREENVILLE, S.C. — A Greenville pastor says signs in front of his church that talk about “poop” are designed to stir up dialogue and to make people laugh, but not everyone sees the humor.Recently, one sign at Trinity Community Church in Greenville said, “Everybody poops.”
The sign this week says, “Playing with poop.”
Pastor Richard Bowers says it’s all just a humorous marketing approach for his church.
“The church needs to be there to help people laugh.”
Bowers said his poop campaign is based on the fact that “everyone poops and everyone sins.”
Bowers, who has been pastor for seven years, says, “We kind of dig out the things people can relate to.”
