The dedicatory text of the plaque proclaims that since 2001, the church has become the fastest growing church in the world, averaging church growth of 4,000 per week and 10,000 baptisms per year.
Three questions remain in my mind:
- What kind of mindset does it take to be duped by this kind of asininity? (Oh yeah, this one.)
- How could this kind of mindset have been acceptable in the fundamentalist mainstream for so long?
- How in the world can a Baptist church grow by 4,000 people per week when it's only baptizing 10,000 per year? (And no, this church is not Bethlehem Baptist in Minneapolis.)
