What I heard today is sadly typical when Christians say, "you know if those people had that kind of zeal for church they would be better off." Others have even attacked other Christians for camping out for this game. They make the statement that "if you had that kind of zeal for God.......". This type of conversation is beyond frustrating. In my book it is as stupid as a pastor standing up in front of his church saying, "I know if you were at a football game right now you would be a different person! I want you to act like that in church this morning!!!!". No, you really don't. Fact is many would be kicked out of a church if they acted like the way they do at a football game. How do I know this? Because if the music was bad, the message was off, long, or boring...do you really want someone to get up and yell "YOU SUCK!"? What about if a pastor makes a good point...should someone get up and scream for a long time? What if someone in the middle of the closer yelled, "WAVE WAVE WAVE 1...2....3" and the wave started.
You see in my opinion these kinds of arguments are senseless. What is wrong with being a Christian and having a little fun as well. Do people really have to correlate the two together? "Well if you can stay up all night waiting for a video game, you can stay up all night praying." FAIL.
