Ante Up

It turns out that in the past few years, some young Christians have become more accepting of gambling as an acceptable pastime rather than a deplorable vice. Thus, the introduction of these:

Faith Chips! Here's what the producer has to say about "Faith Chips":
A new spin on the traditional pocket coin - Faith Chips are not just designed to carry around as a personal reminder - but rather as an ultra cool mini tract to hand out. Because poker is so popular right now, the design of the chip creates a curiosity about the message. It's really no different than using something ordinary, like a T-shirt, to share the Gospel. The authentic look and feel of the chips will make it likely that people will hang onto them and ponder the meaning of the messages!

All I can keep thinking is: WORST...POKER GAME...EVER! The only people I could imagine ever wanting to play poker with something like this are evangelical Christians, but then again, if you're playing with people who are already Christians, what's the point? But if you're actually using this in a tract-like manner...just stop. The pic above isn't even all the chips. You can see them all, plus the case here.

As I've said before, we're raising the laziest evangelists ever. If you want to see a radical, profound approach to evangelism, check out "Evangelism for the Faint Hearted". Yeah, I know, the cover's kind of tacky, but it's a great book. I've met this guy; he was one of my professors. He's extremely amiable, real, and honest. It's a great read for anyone who's burned out with tract and/or sidwalk evangelism.
