Is this really a parody of a church service?

Because after watching it I could SWEAR this is exactly what I experienced at the service I attended in Colorado a few days ago.

      And distracting. At the service I went (Springs church) I’m trying to focus on the words “my eyes are upon you,” instead I’m getting blinded by the flashing lights and the smoke. Seriously?

    Parodies are quite close to the truth in some instances.

      So close to be almost identical based on my recent experience too.

    I recently… well, this year… well, not this year, but within a year… I’ll start again.
    Sometime late last year, I went to a Methodist church. They had both a contemporary and a traditional service. I went to the traditional. The message was crap, and the contemporary stuff bled into the traditional service (I guess they wanted to get their money’s worth out of special guest musicians), but I was struck by how much impact the old hymns backed by a solid pipe organ had on me.

    I currently have a church where I attend a Sunday school class, but I don’t tithe or otherwise support the church itself. It’s far too churchian for that. And once the current book study is finished, I’ll likely move on.

    In the mean time, my tithe hearts Soldier’s Angels. It’d be nice to find a decent church, though.

      Salvation Army is a pretty good tithe too, especially when it comes to relief efforts. I have to admit the same reaction to traditional music myself, without all the contemporary drama and flair, it’s less distracting and easier to focus on the worship itself.

    On judging fellow believers…..

    1 cor 5:9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral peopleโ€” 10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[c] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

    12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. โ€œExpel the wicked person from among you.โ€[d]

    […] modern churches today that have become so predictable in tone and format that any Christian today who watches this parody is probably going to understand exactly why it’s so hilarious (and sad at the same […]
