So long as its not mean spirited. I enjoy Sunday morning worship services. However I don’t believe that that is “church” in the sense of our complete worship and gathering of ourselves together but its all I know as far as a get together where we all sing and praise God, “do” Sunday school and here a message. I’m 43 and been saved 8 years, a member of this church for 7 years and its the only one that I have ever been a part of. So suffice it to say that I love my church family and enjoy our services! Yes it should be so much more than that, and when our Heavenly Father is worshipped properly and Christ is exalted in our life, then it IS so much more! Reply Redeeming God says April 9, 2015 at 8:52 pm It’s pretty light hearted. Not mean spirited at all. Reply William Wells says April 10, 2015 at 3:08 am I decided to watch it and I must say, the church that I belong to is nothing at all like that one! Reply Tiffany Lucas says April 9, 2015 at 10:39 am LOL!! Reply Matthew Richardson says April 9, 2015 at 11:11 am LOL. This does hit a bit close to home in some ways. I hope you don’t get too much ‘hate’ mail. 😉 Reply Kyle Knapp says April 9, 2015 at 11:48 am I’ve seen this before, really fun! Reply Kevin Hansen says April 9, 2015 at 11:58 am That was epic. Made my day. I hope that others are not offended and can find the intended humor behind it. But if you are offended ask yourself why before blasting back. Reply Redeeming God says April 9, 2015 at 8:53 pm If we Christians cannot laugh at ourselves, something is wrong. 🙂 Reply Kevin Hansen says April 9, 2015 at 8:54 pm Agree Reply Wickus Hendriks says April 9, 2015 at 12:35 pm Scary but true Reply Tony Longoria says April 9, 2015 at 12:51 pm LOL Reply Dean Norton says April 9, 2015 at 5:56 pm The tatto on the guys arm is the name of the Almighty! Yehovah! Reply Dan Homan says April 9, 2015 at 6:39 pm I’ve seen this before . . . I can’t like it . . . what is your take on an alternative? Reply Dan Mayhew says April 9, 2015 at 7:56 pm Every time I watch this I can’t help but laugh…and then sigh. Reply Jeremy Myers says April 9, 2015 at 8:41 pm I guess the video is somewhat older… today was the first time I saw it. But yes, it makes me laugh … and sigh. Reply Ransom Backus says April 9, 2015 at 8:44 pm It isn’t too much of an exaggeration, that’s the problem. I’ve seen churches today and they sound desperate and pleading and have NO authority. When the Holy Spirit has left, the only thing left to do is entertain the audience, keeping the cash flow coming in. Reply Jeremy Myers says April 9, 2015 at 9:11 pm Yes, that might be true. I think many of these church leaders have good hearts and intentions, but since their salary is on the line, they do what it takes to keep their jobs. Of course, they also see it as a way to speak the language of their audience and advance the message of the gospel, but things can get pretty garbled along the way sometimes. … But that’s true with everything we do, isn’t it. Reply Ransom Backus says April 9, 2015 at 9:17 pm most pastors I meet are trained, paid professionals. They do what they know. Reply John Evans says April 9, 2015 at 9:19 pm Jeremy, they call it growtivation, but I like to call it scrotivation. Reply Kyle Knapp says April 9, 2015 at 11:17 pm Lol Reply Ward Kelly says April 10, 2015 at 2:32 am Jeremy, this is exactly what bugs me about contemporary church in America. I am searching for so much more than the shallow methodology of this kind of “service”. Reply Redeeming God says April 10, 2015 at 9:40 am Yes, it sometimes is little more than a show or a production. Of course, a lot of people get some benefits from that production too… Reply Jeff Clarke says April 10, 2015 at 3:33 am Jeremy, I wrote a post along these lines on Weds that may be of interest 🙂 – Entertainment Fatigue: Why People Are Growing Tired of the Church’s Glitzy Stage – http://bit.ly/1CACAkf Reply Dean Chia says April 10, 2015 at 6:21 am Dean Norton, a fellow Dean! Actually, the tattoo is a wayihi, which can be loosely translated as “and so it was”. It is the imperfect form of the to be verb hayah with a waw (and) in the beginning. Reply Becky Webb Berg says April 10, 2015 at 8:59 am Heeheehee……. Reply Jeremy Myers says April 10, 2015 at 9:38 am Jeff, I’ll come check it out! Dean, the tattoo flashed up so quickly, I mistook it for YHWH also, but now that I go back and paused the video, I see you are right. Reply Dean Chia says April 10, 2015 at 10:23 am Haha. The reason I saw this video at all was because we were talking about wayihi, and my OT prof mentioned this funny (or scary) video. Reply Leo says April 26, 2015 at 9:44 pm Thanks for sharing. Love parody and satire as it reveals truth that often goes unnoticed. Christians, like all humans.. tend toward ritual. I remember the old baptist services as a child: sing a few hymns (first, second, skip third, and sing forth verse), announcements, prayer before offering, offering, a soloist, and the message, invitational prayer, alter call, and service is done. Several years ago (1970s-80’s) I commented to a friend something to the effect that we as Christians should produce the best music and production and nothing less. Maybe I should have prayed for originality? Reply Leave a Comment or Question Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
