The 9 Worst Kinds Of Hilariously Trendy Church Names


Prophecy Sign:  The Last Days Laodicean, (Apostate Church)

In and of itself, the desire of some churches to change their name to some catchy moniker to appeal to more people with the hopeful result of attracting new converts to said church, would not appear on the face of it to be the definition of apostasy.  (And the following article makes that point.)  However in the desire to be more trendy and attractive to an increasingly skeptical and secular society, this trendiness can ultimately lead to the toning down of biblical doctrine in the haste to be more inclusive and relevant.  As a result, repentance from sin is no longer preached from the pulpit as it may offend those living in such sin, (homosexuality, adultery, etc).  Instead a kinder, gentler all loving form of God and Jesus is preached where all things are accepted even unto universalism, (everyone is saved at the end of it all). 

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3 NIV

Ultimately, this doctrine of acceptance and tolerance does nothing but send a happy lot of sinful people to a destiny of separation from God for all eternity.  Doctrine is there for a reason and that reason is to penetrate the sinful heart, break it down and have that man or woman fall to their knees in repentance and then to accept the offer of salvation from the Jesus Christ who will judge all things and all people when the time comes.

Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. John 5:22-23 NIV

The 9 Worst Kinds Of Hilariously Trendy Church Names
The Christian satire site Babylon Bee recently skewered the growing trend of trendy church names. Forget words like “Faith,” “Bible,” “Church,” or—heaven forbid—the name of your denomination, they advised. Don’t go with a name that gives visitors information about your church, said imaginary consultants. Go with a name you can market. I had a good laugh, but it got me thinking. What if I compiled my own list of the most cringe-worthy actual church names? So I conducted an informal social media survey, and was overwhelmed by the responses.  

Is God male? The Episcopal Church debates whether to change its Book of Common Prayer
The terms for God, in the poetic language of the prayers written for centuries, have almost always been male: Father. King. Lord. And in the Episcopal Church, the language of prayer matters. The Book of Common Prayer, the text used in every Episcopal congregation, is cherished as a core element of Episcopal identity. This week, the church is debating whether to overhaul that prayer book — in large part  to make clear that God doesn’t have a gender.
