    “ Significant and earnest instruction ”
    Comment: It is beneficial to address the flaws of current biblical worship, yet it is extra expedient to address the causes why worship appears ‘boring’ to some and why churches are losing the young people. Out of necessity one has to admit that the individuals in question might not be possessors of eternal life, however another contributing factor might be formal worship accompanied of insincere practice, double standards or inconsistent lifestyles. ‘Music styles’ in worship depict character or the lack of it, biblical understanding and Scriptural perception. It is good to suggest modesty as part of genuine biblical worship in women, yet may it nor be overlooked, that men can meet their counterpart with a respectful dress code which still in Western connotations includes ‘suit/shirt and tie’ instead of casual dress down.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Praise and thank God for such strong biblical preaching which strengthens God's people. Truly biblical worship is critical in the perilous times we live in. It is relevant now and forever. Worthy is the Lamb is our eternal song as we approach our Father in heaven in reverence and awe.

    SC (12/19/2010)

    “ Must listen! ”
    Rev Wagner covers many relevant points that are a needful warning for all churches today. We must beware of the wiles of the devil, lest we offer the thrice Holy God polluted worship. The portion on music is very well put for those who are still doubtful.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    This is a topic Almighty God is speaking to many today. I've been a Christian for thirty odd years now. From a catholic background. I got sick of hymn sandwiches a long time ago. I now long for a fellowship of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Unfortunately unless you go to something like an Alice Cooper concert, you've had it. In twenty years if we continue like this, God will be whoever has the shiniest guitar that day! Whatevr happended to evening servises? the television thats what!! I have to thank Almighty God for the computor. I only just found this site, but my main teaching has been coming from Dr John McArthur, Rc sproul, Adrian Rodgers etc., etc. Thank you for your word Rev wagner. I got to hear it 1st nov 2010. To end with an amusing comment. Alice Cooper the now aging rock star who's stage act was from hell itself.... get this...He's a Christian now. has been for some time now I heard. God doea indeed work in mysterious ways!!!!! May The Lord bless you and your ministry. I like you, presume that God will not put up with much more of this idoltrous world. every Blessing to you and all yours. paul England.

    “ Needed To Be Preached ! ”
    This sermon needed to be preached in the BOLD manner in which Pastor Wagner delivered it so as to counter the acceptance of man-centered worship that abounds today over that of paying homage to God that follows the biblical pattern. What a beautiful thing!...Pastor Wagner is fulfilling his calling to preach The Gospel and hold up the standard ("Thus Saith The Lord") for Christ-honoring adoration.

    “ Powerful Preaching! ”
    One of the clearest and boldest sermons on the subject of worship that I have heard in a long time. It is compelling in its directness and in its challenge. The call to become concerned with the manner in which people worship God is a reflection of the burden to keep the Lord Jesus Christ at the focus of that worship. I recommend listening to this message if you have a burden for Biblical worship, and I recommend listening to it if you wonder what all the controversy means.
