Water Slide… Baptism?

All right, you’re not gonna believe this.

When St. Paul said, “Let all things be done decently and in good order” (I Corinthians 14:40), he probably was not thinking of anything like what’s going on at the Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

There they have installed a great big water slide, and you zoom down the chute into a pool to get baptized ( http://babylonbee.com/news/elevation-church-debuts-water-slide-baptismal/ ). The pastor might also squirt you with a super-squirter.

The idea is to get as many people baptized as quickly as possible.

Somebody’s church has more money than is good for it.

I mean, why don’t they just stand on the roof and throw water-balloons at the passersby below?

I’ve heard of “seeker-friendly” churches, but this is ridiculous.

    Oh, dear! Seems that the Elevation Church is having altitude issues from the ‘elevation’. All joking aside, this really is scandalous, making a mockery of what Our Lord and Savior did for us. Very sad.

    I can’t believe that they can’t see how ridiculous that is. Sigh …

    This is one more pathetic example of the apostate church that we were
    forewarned about in scripture. I know not many of us actually expected
    things to go this far off track, but I shake my head and wonder what next.
