The church that entertains.

Posted by appolus on September 1, 2017

The church that can’t worship must be entertained. And men who can’t lead a church to worship must provide the entertainment (A.W.Tozer)
In most of Christendom we are living with the triumph of form over substance and the evidence of that is the depth or lack thereof of Christianity in our society. Now three of four generations into an entertainment driven church we are left with a shallowness of showmanship that merely engages the “audience.” I would argue that all across Christendom we are seeing leaders who lead the people by providing entertainment.

You will hear excuses about staying relevant and keeping up with technology and so on. I personally have nothing against technology but when it becomes an integral part of creating a “show” on a Sunday morning then you know that the plot has been lost. Today we are being driven by the form and not the substance. The cultural winds have simply taken a hold of the church and the church is being driven along by these winds towards what destination? What is the end for such a church? The complete amalgam of the world with the church. This is a tragedy.
