Jonah in Reverse
A church in Alabama has been using "Fear Factor" tactics, such as swallowing live goldfish, to teach teens what the Bible has to say about fear. The youth minister justified the approach by saying, "The method of the ministry that we use to bring people is going to change, but the message is going to stay consistent." So what's the next ministry to be inspired by reality TV? How about . . . "American Idolatry," where church members compete to sell their worldly possessions to the lowest bidder?
UPDATE: The church recently decided to discontinue the practice of swallowing live goldfish as part of its "Fear Factor" ministry.
