Come on Pagitt!

17 Apr

So I was doing a little historical reading on “Solomon’s Porch” for church on Sunday and I came across this description:

Attached to the original temple of Solomon was “the porch of judgement” where king Solomon had constructed a large hall 50 cubits long and 30 cubits wide because of the enormous porch in front. Originally there was cedar from floor to ceiling. This was the hall of judgement where the king would make judgements and exercise justice.

It just seems a little mean to name your church after a place of judgment…or is that just me,  although I will go ahead and assume that he has re-imagined it, perhaps as the Porch of Yoga or something…

(Side note:  This post is meant to be ironic and funny,  not serious,  I repeat not serious.  Doug is actually with Jesus on this one, as Solomon’s porch was important not only in his ministry but in the early church as well.)

    The name is ironic. It is my understanding that the Emergent Church has a real problem with authority. Authority of scripture, and authority of the pastor. If you name your church after a biblical place of judgment and authority and don’t actually use it for such, it is ironic.

    nothing worse than when people question the authority of the pastor…next they’ll want the bible translated into their own language.

    Anyone is welcome to post…but really your need to bring something a lot stronger than that. I like funny, but that is one of the
    stupidest jumps in logic I have ever heard.

    Now I don’t know Barry at all so I am not vouching for him, but come on…really you went to all the trouble to type a reply and that is what you came up with? It makes me wonder are you reading this yourself or just looking at the pictures and having some one read it to you?

    Now if you have an issue with the concept of authority vested in a pastor make that point, but don’t insinuate that those who believe a pastor has authority don’t believe in cultural relevance.


    PS: Pagitt I have seen you be funnier too..come on guys!
