Pastor turns church into “Fight Club”

Should congregants gather to see two pastors punch each other in the face?  Grab the popcorn, but no need to bring a Bible to this church.  There’s a whole lot of swinging, punching, kicking, sweating and swaggering, but not much mention of the Gospel here at FIGHT CHURCH. And not much in the way of […]
