Nothing says FAIL like Christians confusing the kickboxing ring with the mission field:
As if we needed any more evidence that the church as an institution has gone completely bonkers, I bring you “Fight Church.” The money quote from the above clip:
“The hope is through the fight I can create a relationship with the person I’m fighting and extend Christ to him.”
Er, no, honey. That’s just wrong. Look, I don’t have a problem with martial arts, I don’t think you’re a bad Christian for boxing, but this Fight Club Jesus stuff is not Biblical. It’s a figment of your twisted, fucked up church. Jesus did turn the other cheek. He did not turn a left hook or a roundhouse. Sorry you don’t like that, but them’s the facts.
Box all you want, but don’t pretend you’re spreading the word of the Lord in the process. You’re not. You are doing it wrong. Completely wrong.
Christianity is dead. It’s over. It’s an institution which has so lost its way, and is so desperate for relevance, its leaders latch onto any base human behavior in a desperate attempt to sell what no one is buying. Greed, violence, and war: yeah, there’s a church for that!
Helping the prostitute, the destitute, the immigrant? Not so much.
