What Worship Is “Not”

Christian worship is not about us… it is about God. It always has been. However, we live in an age where self worship abounds. And although it might not be quite as extreme as depicted in the video below, we’re pretty close....

Cute: Two Year Old Girl Sings Lord’s Prayer

My wife came across this cute video of a Korean toddler saying (singing) the Lord’s Prayer. You know, “Our Father, which art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name…” I remember reciting this every church service I attended as a kid, but at only 2 years and 8 months, being able to not only remember the Lord’s Prayer but sing it as Zoei Toh does is pretty amazing. With no further ado, here is Zoei....

Bad Commercials

We’ve all seen them on TV or during the previews at the movies. Visually, there is a major disconnect between the visual aids and the message or the marketing department must have just experienced major cutbacks, because what was once supposed to be funny is now downright offensive. This is TV. So how bad does a commercial have to be to be a “bad commercial” on the radio?

Christians Now Have No Excuse To Miss Church

We have all done it – made excuses as to why we might not attend any particular church service – whether we have actually acted on them or not. My pastor recently presented a humorous look at what a church might do in order to provide no excuse to miss church. They’d hold a special service called “No Excuse Sunday” which might look something like this. (Name of Church) Announces “No Excuse Sunday” Event To make it possible for everyone to attend church this Sunday, we are going to have a special “No Excuse Sunday” which wiull consist of the following: Cots will be placed in the foyer for those who say, “Sunday is my only day to sleep in. There will be a special section with lounge chairs for those who feel that our pews are too hard. Eye drops will be available for those with tired eyes from watching TV late Saturday night. We will have steel helmets for those who say, “The roof would cave in if I ever came to church.” Blankets will be furnished for those who think the church is too cold, and fans for those who say it is too hot. Scorecards will be available for those who wish to list the hypocrites present. Relatives and friends will be in attendance for those who can’t go to church and cook dinner, too. We will distribute “Stamp Out Stewardship” buttons for those that feel the church is always asking for money. One section will be devoted to trees and grass for those who like to seek God in nature. Doctors and nurses will be in attendance for those who plan to be sick on Sunday. We will provide hearing aids for those who can’t hear the preacher and cotton wool for those who think he’s too loud! The sanctuary will be decorated with both Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies for those who never have seen the church without them. Hat tip to...

The Commercialism of Christmas

I came across a revised “Twas The Month Before Christmas” poem that revels how commercialized Christmas has become in our day and age. Although I consider myself a bit of a humbug when it comes to our modern Christmas holidays, I do enjoy a few things about the Christmas season such as getting together with family and friends, the fact that some people step into a church for the first time and hear the gospel and slowing down the daily grind for at least a couple of days (if not a week). However, I utterly despise the commercialism of Christmas. With many merchants placing Christmas decor and merchandise out immediately after Halloween, it seems that the real reason for the season for most is the “almighty dollar.” If you feel as I do, then you might enjoy this revision of an old classic poem. ‘Twas The Month Before Christmas ‘Twas the month before Christmas When all through our land, Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand. The ‘PC’ Police had taken away, The reason for Christmas that no one could say. The children were told by their schools not to sing, About Shepherds and Wise Men and the gifts that they bring. It’ll hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say December 25th is now just ‘Holiday’. Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it! CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod Something was changing, and something quite odd! Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda. As Targets were hanging their trees upside down At Lowe’s the word “Christmas” – no where to be found. At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears. “Inclusive”, “Sensitivity”,” Di-ver-si-ty”, Are words that were used to intimidate me. On Daschle, on Darden, on Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, and Clinton! In the halls of the Senate, there arose such a clatter To eliminate Jesus, from all public matters. And we spoke not a word, as they took away faith, We’re forbidden to speak of salvation and grace. The true Gift of Christmas was changed and discarded The reason for the season, stopped before it got started. So as you celebrate around your ‘Dream Tree’ Sipping your Starbucks, please listen to me. ~ ~ ~ Choose your words carefully, and mean what you say , Shout out MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday! How long before in this day of political correctness and hyper sensitivity towards tolerance will Christmas...
