10 Things Not To Say…

… When you’re chatting to other Christian type people that you’ve met for the first time… perhaps you’re at a wedding with ALOT of folks from another church or something…

  1. “Baptist? Really?”
  2. “Urgg…. I’m so hung over…”
  3. “Oh you go to that new Church? How many conversations have you had since you started?
  4. In response to “How do you know the lucky couple?”, DO NOT SAY “We used to go out drinking together”. The person you’re talking to probably hates drinking…
  5. “So do you reckon Rob Bell is a heretic?”
  6. “Hey, How YOU doin”
  7. “Yeah… I go to the cool church down the road…”
  8. “You like Driscoll? Really??”
  9. “How can you like Quiche????”
  10. “yeah… we baptist people the biblical way in our church…”

Not entirely made up…

Is there anything else of note that we’ve not included?

Well its a book, its a book by a guy called Rob Bell… and opinion about his book does seem to vary from place to place. Depending on who you talk depends on what of the following opinions you seem to get in return:

  • A book that asks more questions then anything else.
  • Its a book that says Hell doesn’t exist.
  • Its a book that doesn’t say that Hell doesn’t exist.
  • Its a marketing dream.
As for Team Sofa… we subscribe to the Marketing dream opinion…
