Creative Idea of the Day

Today's Creative Idea to Lighten Up a Church Service is a) biblical, b) full of evangelistic potential, c) simply yet another great idea from CTRVHM and d) bound to bring about the defeat of all kinds of territorial demonic strong holds.

You have no doubt heard of 'prayer ministry', 'deliverance ministry', 'book sale ministry', 'youth ministry' etc. The creative suggestion for the day is to start up your own 'Tonsil hockey' ministry. Based on verses such 1 Peter 5:14, Rom. 16:16, 1 Co. 16:20, 2 Co. 13:12, and 1 Thess. 5:26 (I want to point out, the Greek is unmistakably in the imperative), at your next Sunday service greet your unmarried sister (or brother) with an unforgettable 'kiss of lurrrrve'. Bring your lips up out of exile, and let those roaming kisses go free.

Also, you've heard of 'open air' street evangelism? Preaching on a street corner to passersby? Well, what about open air street kiss evangelism? This will probably get you punched as well, which is, of course, persecution – proving you are righteous.

One real risk with this kind of evangelism is the possibility of catching some nasty disease and dying for the sake of the gospel. What true evangelical could resist this? Thank goodness I don't pretend to be a true evangelical. :-)

Dying from diseases?! Have you not read the longer ending of Mark, and all that business about deadly poison and snakes?

Must admit that I wasn't totally on top of this - it appears in a footnote in my usual reading version of the Bible and who reads footnotes? So, the methodology would be to place hand on top of head of potential kissee, pray for healing from all illness, then kiss? I assume that it is OK to select the kind of people that you think God would want in the Kingdom, not just the first person who wanders by?

Now we are on the same wave length!

Maybe we should start a branch of CTRVHM here in Australia? Would give you an excuse to visit, although funding for the trip might be a tad difficult to arrange and you definitely couldn't bring a sword with you. :-)
