Cowboy Churches Attracting Larger Crowds
But this isn't a typical rodeo. It's an outreach ministry of the Cowboy Church of Ellis County, which has grown from about 300 to 2,200 members since it began nearly nine years ago. The church about 30 miles south of Dallas now bills itself as the world's largest cowboy church.

The movement is about 40 years old but has grown rapidly in recent years, especially among Baptists. The Midland, N.C.-based Cowboy Church Network of North America, supported by the Southern Baptist Convention's North American Missions Board, has started dozens of churches in 12 states and Canada since 2003. ...

I have been up to Canada several times over the years and of course Canada has the metric system. It is not that difficult to understand the metric system.

Yes, these are the sort of places where the gospel will be seen to be the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. Far too many good gospel messages are wasted in churches where there are no sinners to convert. Jesus himself attended and sometimes preached in the synagogues on Sabbath, but the rest of the week he went out among the people. He was, as you say, seeking the lost.

I went to a rodeo Church years ago, just a little tent set up. The rodeo clown could have used to attend, he was pretty rude and perverted. Children shouldn't have to be exposed to such nonsense. I had a nice time at the Church, meeting brothers and sisters in Christ. Hearing the Gospel message and singing God's praises. It's an excellent place to have a christian outreach, rodeos are something that is usually surrounded with sinful living. Jesus came to seek and save the lost.

Neil,

Greetings! I would say that my previous pastor used inductive reasoning there and I would presume that the majority of people(if you would allow that here)would agree that death indeed would be connoted with the ingestion of too much of a toxic substance.
As the term is commonly used toxic would be referred to as a poison. In general, if people ingest too much water they will be terribly uncomfortable or a bit sickly. Death is surely an extreme. Insects may die from ingesting a small amount of a toxic insecticide but not from a small amount of water no matter their condition.
Job 42:2

To be sure, *all* substances, even water in a recently publicized case, are toxic if inbibed in sufficient quantity. What constitutes a toxic amount for any individual, however, is impractical to determine a priori.

It appears that the Church Growth Movement is effecting nearly all denominations today in one way or the other. The goal is numbers. The method is entertainment.
As far as alcolhol having the possibility of being lethal, I might relate one of my first(now retired and in ill health) pastor's pre-salvation stories. There was an occasion in a NYC bar that a man guzzled a bottle of whiskey. He fell to the ground and later they took him out dead. Obviously, most are able to drink a gallon of lesser % alcolhols such as beer and survive but alcohol is toxic to the body.

Then observant Jews aren't gentlemen, since they are expected to wear a kippah (skullcap) while in synagogue or during other religious rituals. The more conservative wear them all the time. This seems the opposite of what 1 Cor. 11:4,7 requires for Christian men during public worship.

Now I grant that a cowboy hat, with its broad brim, doesn't make much sense indoors anyway.

A real gentleman would never ever wear his hat on indoors, church or any other building.

Thanks Neil for the info. Now I know that a ten gallon hat only holds about a gallon.

Yes I well remember the days when we bought petrol in gallons, spuds in pounds and ounces, and wood in feet and inches. Alas, all gone now, except for some hardy folk who buck the trend and still sell a half-pound of cheese and so on.

John, FYI: [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cowboy_hat#.22Ten_gallon.22_hat]]]Ten Gallon Hat[/URL]
So while excess drinking is a common pastime among country folk (and college kids), I doubt one could get a fatal amount of fermented beverage in it. I wouldn't put any beverage in mine - I have oily hair!

There was a touching scene in the Aussie film "The Light Horsemen" in which the Diggers let their horses drink their remaining water from their hats before their cavalry charge on Benghazi in 1917. This was part of Allenby's successful campaign to take Palestine from the Turks, which paved the way for postwar British occupation and Jewish immigration there.

BTW, Texans have a witty title for an idle boaster - "All Hat and No Cattle."

Is there any truth in the rumour that in the USA, there are hats called 'ten gallon' hats, which are used in drinking competitions, resulting in several deaths every year?

"It is also unbiblical to have a huge wardrobe of different clothes for each and every occasion."

If many men (heterosexual ones anyway) have huge wardrobes, it's probably because they don't bother to discard clothes they don't often wear. One could call that frugality rather than vanity. But feel free to rebuke the ladies on this point - I'm right behind you.

Bear in mind, modern clothes, being machine-made, are usually cheap compared to those in pre-industrial times. That's probably why the soldiers gambled for Jesus's clothing, & why the victim in Luke 10:30 was stripped by the highwaymen.

There is nothing wrong with dressing up as a cowboy or cowgirl for worship services. It is just plain stupid to dress up in dress clothing for church.
I reckon you are partly right in your comment.

Neither the holy Lord Jesus nor his disciples 'dressed up' to attend the synagogue, they went in the clothes they were wearing.

However, if today someone 'dressed up' in cowboy clothes, or in any other clothes other than what they normally wear, then this would be unbiblical.

It is also unbiblical to have a huge wardrobe of different clothes for each and every occasion. We are supposed to give clothes away, not amass great quantities of them.
