Turning the tide: As traditional churches see interest wane, upstarts draw in young people

lol you edited your comment before I could call out the Cake reference! Saw them at Jayhawk Music Fest in '97.

You're assuming a lot about me without knowing me outside of an anonymous forum. I find it ironic the judgment and intolerance stereotype you're accusing me of is exactly what you're doing to me - judging and not tolerating even an explanation of what I believe.

That said, I don't blame you for being so passionately against the stereotype that DOES exist for a reason.

Gareth, I refer back to the judgment comment. You assume they don't have accountability because they don't have a denomination? That's pretty silly - and wholly inaccurate.

You're assuming that all Christians are republicans. :) It's a stereotype I'm sure these guys are trying to shake. I've met intelligent humans that are pro-education and believe in a rational world where faith can co-exist.

Gareth, it's this type of judgment without doing one lick of research that has current generations who have honest questions and doubts about God leaving the faith in droves. Gareth, you should ask for forgiveness.

Salvation is found in Jesus alone, not a "hierarchy" that makes you feel safe and more justified in whatever doctrine you obviously worship.

Justin, Deacon and Jared are three quality guys with great hearts for this city. No matter your church style, you should be grateful to have these guys playing on your team, clearing the way for the current generation to learn about Jesus without having to feel like they have to lose their mind or sense of humor just to show up!

Thanks for the article Arley!
