More on Louisiana Explosion

This is in reply to a Comment from John on https://aogs.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/australian-pentecostals-sleep-while-louisiana-burns/:

Thanks for the Comment.
It was weeks before the Louisiana explosion made anywhere like headlines in Australia. Australia had the bushfires – and rapid mobilisation of volunteers and emergency workers. Aren’t they worried about catastrophes outside Australian waters?? No, particularly when the oil industry is so powerful in the Australian political scene and its oil leaks, messes might be looked into. (We’re talking of huge offshore explorers like BHP, Exxon, and Woodside (34% owned by SHELL, of Southern Nigeria infamy – search ‘Ogoni People’) Some years ago, Christian leader Jim Wallis [author: God’s Politics]  visited Australia and asked “Where are the Martin Luther Kings (MLKs) today??” Well… Today’s Church leaders are politically weak as water. Steve Fielding and Fred Nile have tried to emulate MLK. The Pentecostals are too busy creating palaces.

ACC Prez Brian Houston on Pastor Michael

  i  want  ours  to  be  churches  that  are  full  of  authentic  and  genuine people,  as  I  believe  the world  is  crying  out  for  authenticity,  people  whose  ‘yes’  is  yes  and  ‘no’  is  no.  People  who aren’t  afraid  to  stand  for  something  and  admit  they  too  face  challenges  and  struggles.

             THE FUTURE OF OUR FAITH
21st century faith: relevant, authentic and generation focused
