Growing Churches Ezzo's Way

The long-lived Christian satire magazine, The Door, had a recent spoof of Gary Ezzo and the church growth movement written by Kelley Reep. You can buy and read the whole magazine here, but here's my favorite tidbit of advice:

How to Handle Those Who Disagree With You: "Duct tape is marvelously effective for dealing with both rebellious children and rebellious elders. When they do not obey you the first time, place the tape over their mouth. . . . Philippians 1:17, 'ConDUCT yourselves in a manner worthy of the Lord.'"

Thanks for the comment on my blog. And I have been reading down through your blog - I like it. The duct tape quote is especially fine!

From the information I have and what I have read of the Ezzo's writings, this seems very much in line with their use of scripture. It's sad when parody is really that close to reality!
