Reading Time: 11 minutes As soon as I spotted this ad and realized it wasn’t selling perfume, I forgot all about why I’d gone to that site in the first place.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Hi and welcome back! It didn’t take long after Hillsong’s troubles became public for Christians to engage in one of their favorite pastimes: criticizing megachurches. Non-megachurch-attending Christians hate megachurches for all kinds of reasons. Today, I want to show you some of those reasons — and what the megachurch model means in the age of […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes Hello and welcome back! Recently, I got a little book with a title I’d consider clickbait in a blog post: Atheist Overreach. Its author, Christian Smith, says he wrote it to help normies achieve ‘greater insight and perhaps, dare I say, enlightenment.’ Oof. I wanted to show it to you because it’s a relatively new book that […]

Reading Time: 8 minutes I find my thoughts turning to another subject: one of love, grief, and ultimately hope. Today, Lord Snow Presides over yet another self-serving redefinition that tells us way more about Christians than they should really want us to know.

I want to show them to you, and then examine the advertising methods on display. Today, Lord Snow Presides over yet more sucky Christian church marketing.

Like most of these sorts of guides, this one asks its readers to deceive their evangelism targets about what kind of game they’re playing. In fact, a lot of Christian evangelism tactics commit that same kind of deception. Using that book’s patent-pending X-Ray Approach Technique, I’ll show you what I mean.
Reading Time: 9 minutes I want to show you something wonderful that happened to me the other day that shows just what a terrible business Christianity is. Today, Lord Snow Presides over the stark contrast between Christianity-as-a-business and the way that an actually good business runs.
Reading Time: 11 minutes Their behavior might seem just bizarre, but it all makes perfect sense when we understand what they really hope to achieve. Today, I’ll show you three different ways that such people act out–and why they do it. You’ll see that they’re getting exactly what they want, in that moment.
Reading Time: 8 minutes The recent incursion of Christian trolls we’ve seen around here highlights the failure of evangelism even more effectively than if they’d never shown up at all. But we needn’t look so close to home to see that Christians are flailing for lack of effective marketing and sales techniques. Today I’ll show you the religion’s newest failure: incarnational evangelism.
