Coffee Jitters

Fox news posted an article  (on 10/5) about a pastor who caused a brew-ha-ha by questioning parishioners sipping their lattes during morning worship. The church has come a long way from the catacombs to the coffee cafe'. The Apostle Paul said, “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not” (1Cor. 10:23). I don’t think the Corinthian believers had a problem with their coffee hour spilling over into the worship service, but it does seem that their Lord's Supper was being turned into a Pot Luck Supper, and Paul called them out on that. Bringing your 'cafe con lache,' into worship is not my cup of tea, but I am not the judge. I do see, however, this as real evidence of ‘Spiritual Climate Change,’ and another example of a cavalier christianity in many casual sects. It's not that America (or American Christians) think so little of sin, but rather so many have such a low opinion of God. Isaiah records the words of God (who is watching all this) "To this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word." -id
