Re: my objections to the many fads and trends in spiritual growth and church growth. They are marketed, and explained, in the same way that diets are. There is a continuing stream of things that just look like they should work, darn it. This food should burn calories. It only stands to reason that this timing of eating should be better. There’s an experimental tidbit that suggests women who ate/didn’t eat these animals/vegetables/minerals lost an average of 7 lbs, so doing that twice as hard for twice as long should result in losing 28 lbs. Shouldn’t it? There is a range of scientific evidence behind each of these diets, from credible to ludicrous. Which, come to think of it, is one step ahead of many spiritual plans. Those sometimes have an n=1. One church, one pastor. Sure, that should generalise to a billion people.
Can we try these on mice or something first?
I think I’ve made this analogy before.
