Christ Meat of The Word Sanctuary & Fellowship Flyer

Click to see full sizeI received this in the mail on Saturday. At first, I couldn’t tell if it was a joke or not. With a name like Christ Meat of The Word Sanctuary & Fellowship, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s parody.

They are having “Worship Services” at the Megaplex. That just made me think that it must be some movie making fun of Christian fundamentalism and you can meet at 9:30 am for “Bible Study,” which means that you can find other people who think the whole Christian thing has gotten silly.

Sadly, it looks like it might be a “real” church.

Can a megaplex theater actually provide sanctuary? I’m sure that you can find sanctuary of the mind in the humblest of places, but if Quasi Modo were to run into the megaplex screaming sanctuary, would he be spared?

Maybe it’s just a “Word Sanctuary” and only words are safe within the megaplex walls.

I wonder what Christ Meat tastes like.

I would think that they meant Christ Meet, but they consistently spell it “Meat,” so they must mean the flesh of Christ in a strangely cuisine-oriented phrasing.

Religious freedom is one of the foundations that the United States was built upon. I strongly believe in Christ Meat of The Word Sanctuary & Fellowship’s right to form a religion and meet in the local movie theater every Sunday. I just wonder why they chose such a name that is neither catchy nor descriptive. It’s like they need a marketing bishopric to ensure that they don’t sound like a parody of themselves.



  1. box 27 askakra_kwahu eastern region GHANA Dear In Christ, Greetings of love to you in the name of our Master and Lord Jesus , Who died to cleanse us from all our sins. To introduce myself , I am ANDREWS BOAKYE and a young christian. I have no Bible and I want to please request you to send me a Study Bible. There is always sadness in my heart to go to church without a Bible ,. and when it is time to read a passage from the Bible I only become a spectator. The worst part of it is that I cannot devotionally read the words of God daily at the comfort of my home.This has affected my christian life in the negative way. Please, I need you to help me out of this situation. I am begging you to send me a Study Bible. Please remember me in your daily prayers. I want to end here with much greetings. ANDREWS BOAKYE

  2. Dear Andrews Boakye,

    Unfortunately, you have reached a godless heathen.

    Quit begging and find an honorable profession.
