Carl Trueman: Look, It’s Rubbish!

Trueman on Worship Services that are rubbish.  Here is a sample:

A church service involving clowns or fancy dress or skits or stand-up comedy does not reflect the seriousness of the gospel; and those who take the gospel seriously should know better. Frankly, it is more appropriate to liberal theology which does not take the gospel, or the God of the gospel, seriously. Serious things demand serious idioms.   I heard recently of a church service involving dressing up in costume and music taken from a Tom Cruise movie.  Now, if I go for my annual prostate examination, and the doctor comes into the consulting room dressed as Coco the Clown, with `Take my breath away’ from Top Gun playing in the background, guess what?  I’m going to take the doctor out with a left hook, flee the surgery, and probably file a complaint with the appropriate professional body.   This is serious business; and if he looks like a twit and acts like a twit, then I can only conclude that he is a twit.

The Prayer Cross

Here is the product I mentioned in a recent sermon. This item is just one in a long list which is claimed to bring comfort to the one who purchases it. The really sad part is this thing must be selling for it to still be up on the web and on TV commericals.

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him or knows him.  You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.  I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you (John 14:16-18).”
