WRONG WORSHIP

I first saw this either on one of the blogs I visit or in a Bible study group that I’m involved in online.  Some see it as controversial. I think it’s a good example of the heart of many “Christians” that have lost their way.  This parody/satire is true in so many ways and, unfortunately, evident in the lives of many “believers.”

    I agree Chris, very sad.

      To counterbalance this unfortunate truth, I’ll be putting up some enjoyable Christmas worship music as we get closer to that holiday.

      God’s blessings my friend…

    Fantastic see it in every church I have been. Singing praise to God on the outside, singing praises to themselves on the inside

      Hey Greg.

      I’m sorry to “hear” that you have experienced this in your churches. It’s is, unfortunately, a sign of times in which we live.

      God’s blessings…

  3. Nice satire, Chris. Really embodies the spirit of performance instead of the Chris-centered worship we need to bring.

    • Chris says:

      I think so too, Chris. I got this from the FB study group and then found the one without the Ads.

      I always appreciate your comments.

      God’s blessings…

  4. I have been to churches exactly like this. It’s all about me, all about how I feel, all about my experiences, and nothing about the holy God. Controversial or not, it is becoming more common.

      It is so true, Floating.

      I just hit 55 and it’s amazing the crazy things we’re seeing as opposed to the things with which I grew up. My wife and I had to leave teaching careers in a church where “We don’t care what the Bible says.” We were teachers in the Christian school there. God takes something bad and makes it good. I ended up in a secular job that would allow my wife to stay home to raise our kids to at least school age.

      Thanks for visiting my blog site. You are always welcome here.

      God’s blessings…

    My what naughty little boys and girls you all are – I’m sending you a link for another similar parody, only this one does the whole “church service” in a few minutes flat. And to think that I was the only one who watched this stuff – a ‘cupboard muso’, but there are 7000 who never bent the knee to Hillsong – Amen to that!

    Enjoy

      Thanks Austin. You may want to visit the Narrowing Path blog (on my blogroll) as she lives in Melbourne. This is another example of wrong worship.

      God’s blessings and I appreciate it that you stopped by…

    Hey Chris,
    I’m in regular contact with Sherryn from the Narrowing Path. I found her blog 3weeks ago.

    I’m currently writing my ‘memoirs’ (I turned 54 last week too) and it’s about 35 years long. When it’s been posted, I’ll send you the link – if you like what you see, then feel free to reblog it. I’ve run into just about every ‘false profit’ ministry and wayward cult in town in that time, so it’s an interesting read…

    As for the ‘naughty video’ well, that’s what is happening today in these false profit churches. Music is used to lull the congregation into a ‘feel good’ atmosphere, before the “tithing sermon” or the quarterly ‘honour the pastor” money scam. Young people are being deceived – hundreds at a time with rock music and fake experiences (under the guise of ‘revival’). “Having a form of godliness but denying the real power” (for change in a person’s life: 2 Tim 3:5-7.)

    Two good documents I can recomend are “How Cults Work” and “How Pastors Get Rich” and they both come from Cultwatch New Zealand website – highly recommended, as well as their material on the current NAR (listed under ‘Super Apostles’ on that site).

    God bless, and please enjoy the “worship”- and don’t forget to get those ‘tithes’ in if you want to be ‘blessed’…

      Hi Austin.

      Thank you for the information. I will be happy to read your memoirs as you are only a year younger than I. I have also been following “cults” since I was very young. I remember having discussions with Mormons at an early age. It’s interesting how similar the NAR and Mormons are. One of my posts makes that illustration. Guess where I got it? It came from Sherryn’s blog as she had seen it elsewhere.

      I’m glad you stumbled on our blogs. As you have “stated,” “Young people are being deceived.” It is so true and so sad. I would only attend maybe 1/3 of the 230 churches in my county.

      Please send me the link to your memoirs when you are finished. My email is chrisreimers@cablelynx.com. Again, thanks for the document recommendations. I’ll check them out as time allows.

      Also, thank you for reminding me about the offering. Next week I’ll put in twice the usual so that I’ll get the double blessing. Maybe I’ll get out to the car and find gold dust sprinkled on my steering wheel.

      God’s blessings…
