How many angels can stand on the head of a pin?

Today I posted a comment on the article linked here:

"Without evaluating the merits of the various arguments in the article and/or the comments, this entire presentation illustrates why the Christian church has lost its moorings. Not only that, the number of comments on this ethereal subject indicates to me that we're more interested in 'being so spiritual that we're no earthly good'.
I have often compared today's Christians to the crew of the Titanic - who, after the ship has hit a major iceberg - are gathered in the ballroom, arguing about 'how many angels can stand on the head of a pin'. What about the lifeboats? Oh, don't worry, 'this just proves we're in daEnd times and Jesus will save us'!
What did Jesus say, just before His ascension? " All authority has been given me in heaven and earth, so go and make disciples of all NATIONS, etc etc." (Matt. 28:18-20)
What does making disciples mean? It does NOT mean conversion - we can't convert anyone!
I'll tell you who has, is and continues to make disciples - the disciples (now mentors) for Old Scratch, who has convinced most Christians to leave the cultural battlefield to him. How's he doing?

How are we doing?
Name one institution that is not controlled by OS now? Furthermore, judging by a recent poll of American pastors equating Islam with Christianity, it looks like he's got half the church as well.
