Atheist Bruce Gerencser Discovers the Church That Jesus Built

For Immediate News Release

Evangelical pastor turned atheist, Bruce Gerencser, recently stumbled upon a breathtaking find that is sure to excite Christians worldwide. For centuries archaeologists have scoured the Middle East looking for the church that Jesus built. While the Roman Catholic church claims to be the church that Peter built, get back to the purity of the early church Christians continue to look for THE church that Jesus built. And today, that church has been found. Not in Palestine, not in Jerusalem, not in Rome, and not in Salt Lake City. The church that Jesus built, you know, the one true model #1, has been found in Harlan, Indiana.

Lest anyone doubt that this is THE church that Jesus built, the Church of Christ at Harlan  website says that they are “THE body of Christ in Harlan.” It makes perfect sense: THE body of Christ is THE church that Jesus built and it all can be found in Harlan, Indiana, population 1,634.

    Modern people worship in their churches, completely blind to how different their faith and beliefs are compared to the very early church. I used to wonder how much of our religion was actually culture. American Christians would have nothing in common with early Christians.

    I’ve run into this kind over the years. They’re the Church of Christ. It says so right there in their name! Hard to argue with that. 😉

    This reminds me of when you see a sign that says “FIRST Church of the Nazarene”, or whatever.

    “The FIRST one? Wow, it must be really old…”

    This is the tradition I grew up in. Claiming to be the “True 1st Century Church (TM)” was as natural as farting. And as enjoyable. Funny thing is, that wasn’t the theology of the Stone-Campbells. This silly movement isn’t even true to its founders’ stated ideals. Even so, deep down they are no different than all the other fundagelicals. It’s just their marketing angle.
