Starbucks Spirituality

The African Redeemed Church of God (BBC) is coming. . .no, they’re here!

They just built a 10,000 seat auditorium outside of Dallas and they claim 720 churches across North America.

The pastor says he wants these speaking in tongues, healing and praising Pentecostal congregations to be as numerous as Starbucks.

Most members are African immigrants, but they want You and they want Me.

One of their American pastors says,

“We are engaging the people to show them the true Gospel, making sure that people are being saved and people are making it to heaven.”

One of their websites says of their founder (“Pa”):

“Pa Akindayomi also had a vision of words that appeared to be written on a blackboard. The words were “The Redeemed Christian Church of God.” Amazingly, Pa Akindayomi who could not read or write was supernaturally able to write these words down. In this visitation, God also said to him that this church would go to the ends of the earth and that when the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in glory, He would meet the church.

The Lord then established a covenant with Pa Akindayomi, synonymous to the Abrahamic covenant in the Bible. Thus, the Redeemed Christian Church of God was born in 1952, destined by the Lord Himself to take the world for Him.”

“God is still doing marvelous deeds through The Redeemed Christian Church of God, worldwide. One of the well-known programs of the church is the Holy Ghost Service, an all night miracle service that holds on the first Friday of every month at the Redemption Camp [in] Lagos. . The average headcount of those who attend the Service is in millions.”

American (and English) evangelism is reaping the (whirlwind) reward of centuries converting the heathen-pagans on the “Dark Continent.”  People who learned to dress like us and talk like us and worship like us; who learned the True Way of the White Jesus and the Black Book.  Who are not just Christians but “Redeemed” Christians, not just a Church but the Church of God, and not just regular Christians but Holy Ghost Christians (the best and only kind).

Those who have been “saved” in other countries are now making America their mission field.  America needs saving now.  Here they come!  Starbucks, get ready!

  1. They’ll probably make plenty of big bucks over here. After all, that’s what big-time evangelism is really all about. Doesn’t matter what the skin color is, there’s a sucker (or a thousand) born every minute.

    1. Yes, I agree. I just think it’s so ironic that this “reverse mission” is now going to give some competition to our home-grown Americhristianity. Something almost satisfying there. Almost.
