A New Poll

A new scientific poll has been constructed by a guest WELS pollster.

Sounds like a Greg Jackson poll. I won't even respond because the poll itself is slanted and doesn't give an opportunity for one to give a more balanced view, like

"Maybe, because some church growth methodologies are simply common sense ideas about how to get the means of grace to people."

John,

I voted in the poll...if anyone knows me they can guess which one I voted for!

Its nice that the word "Methodologies" was used, Most methods are of themselves harmless, but Methodologies...that think we can do anything to grow the church...are dangerous.

If you look under the comments on the post below this one you will notice that it was submitted by "A WELS pollster."

Michael,

I appreciate the use of distinctions in theology. They can be quite helpful.

But I'm curious--how do we distinguish between methods and methodologies? What is the difference between these two?

Thanks!

P.S. Mr. Anonymous at 6:38--why don't you come up with your own poll if you don't like this one? Perhaps you could stimulate more discussion with that.

Thanks again!

"Maybe, because some church growth methodologies are simply common sense ideas about how to get the means of grace to people."

In other words, "Some people might take offense to God's word or find it boring. I can make it relevant."

Sarcastic as always.
