If It Weren't For Us Christians, There'd Be A Lot More Christians...new book from Crossover
Just in time for Halloween, Bobby Weaver's new book from Crossover, takes a humorous and poignant look at the sometimes unexplainable behavior of some Christians and how that conduct does more to scare people away than attract them to the faith.
Two competing churches in Florida put up opposing billboards. One declares, “There ain’t no hell!” The other counters with, “The hell there ain’t!”
A young man following a car with a “Honk If You Love Jesus” bumper sticker, honks his horn and gets the middle finger from the driver.
These are just a few actual examples that have led me to believe that some of us must interpret the Great Commission like this: “Go into the world and scare off as many people from the Christian faith as we possibly can.” Let’s face it, when it comes to spreading the Gospel, we can often be our own worst enemy.
From opening nearly 1,000 retail stores to starting a national newspaper chain, Bobby Weaver seemed to have it all…with one possible exception…a relationship with God. You see, Bobby was on a wrong-way journey when God had another idea and used the most unlikely fellow to help. Would you believe Howard Stern? Yes, the radio shock jock. It was the middle of October in 1996 when Bobby told Howard off on a live radio show. But, believe it or not, it was Howard’s response that ended up totally revolutionizing Bobby’s life.
In his book, If it Weren't for Us Christians, Bobby takes an honest look at himself and the Christian community to examine a few misguided attempts at the "Great Commission."
