On the Road Looking for God’s True Church

As Polly and I travel the roads of Northwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana, we are always on the lookout for God’s True Church®. Here are a few of the churches we stumbled upon in recent weeks.

church of christ at harlan

Church of Christ at Harlan, Harlan, Indiana. (website) Jesus is alive? Great, I’d love to have lunch with him. Do you have his cellphone number so I can text him?

harlan united methodist church

Harlan United Methodist Church, Harlan, Indiana. (website) Wait a minute. I thought ALL plans belong to God. Isn’t God the Sovereign of the universe? How can a perfect God have plans that are better ones?

new life worship center bryan

New Life Worship Center, Bryan, Ohio. Until recently, New Life was pastored by Mark Holbrook. Since the Bible clearly teaches that God knows who will be saved, why would he get emotionally worked up over certain people not being at the party?  Our names weren’t on the guest list, so there’s no reason for Jesus to kill himself over our absence.

    On the Harlan sign, the notice about the Food Bank hours should follow the sign message, don’t you think, not preface it. Makes much better sense to me then.

    “Sometimes your plans do not work because God has better ones.”

    Not only does it make you passive, and feeling like you have no control over you life anyway, it also belittles human plans and agency. And it creates guilt: you didn’t follow God’s plans, after all.

    So this seemingly hopefull message is basically bashing us humans on all sides.

    Yes – and what a lot of horse manure is written on that sign!
