In what I’m dubbing the worst religious idea since the prosperity gospel, a group is trying to raise money to help build a McDonald’s in a house of worship. They’re calling it McMass and they believe if they build a church with a McDonald’s this will help the religious relate to the unchurched and help bring in much needed revenue to the church as well. I believe this a bad idea because the house of God should not be a place of business, but a place of worship. When we go into a place of worship, it should be all about Him and learning more about Him and learning more about Him. If you recall Jesus threw over temple tables for making the temple a place of commercial activity. If the church wants to relate to the unchurched, offer them something that will fill them spiritually, which is God’s honest truth. And if you’re gonna build a restaurant in it, at least make it something good like a Chick Fil a. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
