Bucket Drops 7/8/11

Links to some interesting Christian news stories from this week.

SBC says “No” to new NIV Bible  A resolution has passed the Southern Baptist Convention calling the new NIV bible and inaccurate translation and thus cannot be endorsed by the SBC.  An interesting dilemma for those churches and ministry that rely heavily on the older NIV’s, which will no longer be supported.

Only 20% doing all the work in churches A new study shows that roughly 80% of church goers are inactive in their church.  This is a sad reality and explains why no matter the ministry or service you always see the same familiar faces.

Pilots refuse to fly atheist banners A large group (80%) of pilots from an airline advertising company refused to fly banners on July 4th that included such slogans as “God-LESS America” and “Atheism is Patriotic”.  Good for them for refusing, but bad for all of us as things like this continue to show the shift from God to atheism.

Old Navy Gay-Pride Campaign  Following up on the heels of President Obama’s declaration that June was Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender month, apparently clothing chain Old Navy is all set to have a gay-pride campaign in which numerous stores will be selling rainbow colored gay pride T-shirts for men, women, and children.  10% of proceeds will go to the “It Gets Better Project”, a pro-gay campaign aimed at teens that recently had the support of several Major League Baseball teams, including the Giants and Cubs.  Further adding to the open acceptance of sin in this country.

Video: God’s Creation This is an amazing video that captures God’s creation.
