Following news of the $1.3-million Christmas Pageant at the First Baptist Church in Ft. Lauderdale, the recent and unfortunate shootings at big Colorado churches and the cable ubiquitousness of Joel Osteen, megachurches are mega news. With the number of churches considered mega (a congregation of 2,000+) topping 1,300 and climbing in the business of God, is bigger better?
By the way, if you were wondering What Jesus Would Do when faced with a flock of thousands to minister? Well, according to ABC News, Senior Pastor Larry Thompson said of his million-dollar, pyrotechnic-filled, God-stravaganza, ''I think Jesus would come to the show [and say], 'Authentically you got it right.'"
So, do you go to a megachurch?
