Someone has given me a 2 metre satellite dish, so now I can get BBC once I put the dish up. This is harder than you think! A two metre dish is pretty huge.
I have a very small dish at the moment and all we can get is kids TV and God Tv!
In all honesty I think God TV is one of the most worrying things in the christian world.
I feel that it feeds the mindset of the Christian Ghetto, the world removed from the real world. They talk very admirably about spreading the gospel through GOD TV and they are all tremendously sincere but how does that work? The TV just isn't very flesh and blood, it's not a very incarnational way to connect with people.
They use lines like "going out to 769 million viewers", what they mean is potential viewers! This does worry me because it borders on the edge of lying.
There are no way 769 million people who watch GOD TV, if there are then I am scared, very scared.
God TV is OK for a consumerist Christian sub culture. It doesn't appear to be of this world and it is not for the world, it's for christians. The quality of programming is so far off what normal channels produce. I could go on...
Actually I will, one day Jesus again will sweep through the temple and clear out the money lenders and sellers, those who defame his name for profit.
Anyway I found this on the True Blog
Personally it is the best thing I have seen with relation to missional, incarnational church
Michael Frost is fantastic, anyone serious about church and what we are here for should take the time to watch this.
Missio Deo, Participo Christi, Imago Deo! Three great points
