Worship Goes Big-Screen and Hi-Fi, With Direct-Deposit Tithing
At First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Prince George's County, parishioners who don't make it to church on time are directed to an overflow room to watch the Sunday service on a huge projection screen. If they can't make it to church at all, they can catch the service online, anytime.

The Church at Severn Run in Anne Arundel County has a wireless network in its cafe that lets parents work and peruse the Internet while waiting for their children to finish Sunday school. And at McLean Bible Church in Northern Virginia, fancy lighting, rock music and occasional applause spice up spirited sermons.

"I think God would be pleased with this," said the Rev. Grainger Browning Jr., pastor of the 10,000-member Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington. "I don't think that God would want us to try to evangelize like Jesus did 2,000 years ago." ...

"I don't think that God would want us to evangelize like Jesus did 2,000 years ago"

yea that raised a red flag for me too.

Its not that audio/visual equipment is "evil" but if your using all this 8.1 BILLION DOLLARS of equipment because God & His power are not present, then something is terribly wrong.

I wonder if anyone prayed & asked God if they should spend that 8.1 Billion on equipment or for actually doing what He wants us to do (preach the gospel, clothe the naked, feed the hungry, etc).

This thing they call "church" is a growing monster that needs to be fed. Too bad its at the expense of putting people in bondage with no emphasis on what God really wants (just compare these modern church messages to the messages of God, Jesus & the disciples).

Repent or perish.

Love ya all,

Steve

The statement "I don't think that God would want us to try to evangelize like Jesus did..." is telling.

Oh, good!
Yet another way to distance discipleship from the sheep!
Awake, O sleeper! Put on strength! Arise from the dead and Christ will give you light!

I commend to you, a piece written by Bruce Murch of Full Quiver Mission regarding, the "foolishness of Preaching"

http://www.fullquivermission.com/Preaching.php

In every community that has good and Biblical public preaching, the people are softened and the authorities act properly toward the preacher. This is the key to winning our world for Christ. Notice it is local in nature. Everything www.UncleRaisin.com is about is local in nature.

The (Rev) Browning Jr. is doing what most places that call themselves a church do- they THINK rather then obey.
He states " I don't think that God would want us to evangelize like Jesus did 2,000 years ago"
1. Do you not know Jesus is, was, and always will be God?
Does he think that God didn't know how things would be today, so its alright to improve on the Word, not change the Gospel, just tweak it a little to suit each individual taste, or situation.
My question is, just how much tweaking can man do to the Gospel and not end up with ANOTHER GOSPEL?

We regularly receive mailings from large "churches" in the area who serve "burritos to everyone who comes!" One local "church" had a Follow The Yellow Brick Road theme for several Sundays. Another church up the road actually sells nachos and soda pop before the service. These churches call themselves Protestant and Evangelical and would hold to most of the doctrinal stands most of us conservative Bible believers hold to. I ought to start saving these things so you all can see them. Or are there churches like this outside metropolitan California???
