random note

In the ever expanding Agent Network universe...I met another fellow agent today who was visiting family in the fair mother city. We shared a few stories and laughs.

We laughed as he told me that his only memory of the fair mother city came
at age 14 while visiting to compete in a "bible bowl"...then stumbling across porn in his hotel room at night.

Bible, competition, and hidden sin.

...THAT, my friends, is the most spiritually accurate picture of Abilene, Texas that I've EVER heard...

sounds like the "909" in socal. the birth place of mcdonalds, and hells angels.

one person described the place like this...

"when you look in the phone book for bookstores all you find are christian bookstores and porn shops."

Someone told me once that the "adult clubs" and porn shops get more business during lectureship week than any other week of the year...

I can't let this get my cynical...but its really hard to stay optimistic about Christ's bride the church when I hear about the Christian "leader" as we understand him today living like that. My guess is, there is just no avenue for accountability, or healthy team-based ministry; rather, leaders are left unchecked, unrivaled, and alone. I'll stay away from that lifestyle, thank you very much!
