In summary...

It seems like when I was young, the big obsessions of the megachurches were MTV, rock music (which it was claimed had Satanic messages when played backward), the Devil, the evils of pornography, and the importance of tithing. The focus here seemed to be "healing," and at least three times folks were invited forward to ask Jesus to heal them.

But here's the thing: sometimes illnesses just go away, on their own, regardless of what the patient believes. If you arbitrarily chalk up the remissions to divine intervention, then the flip side is the folks who weren't so lucky get to wonder why God didn't find them worthy of the same intervention.

This was interesting, and I'm glad I went, but I really don't think it's my cup of tea.
