You spin me right round…

I don’t even know where to start with this.  If you haven’t seen it, it is Rick Pino (a modern charismatic worship leader) essentially leading a rave/”worship”/80’s sing along/square dance (3:50) service.  Is this where relevancy gets us?  His last phrase in the video confirms ALL of my suspicions.

  1. We love the Lordy? Is that what he says?

    Sounds like it to me.

    i’m hoping that this isn’t really their worship time, but more of a fun “warm up” session that groups often do before conferences, summits, etc.

    at any rate, the girl’s expression @3:40 was one of terror and confusion.

    Even if it is a “warm up” it still bothers me.

    A lot.

    I don’t disagree, but I’m curious what Biblical references you think apply here.

    I don’t know where to start, because it’s a difficult foundational problem rather than a simple “prohibited by Scripture” problem. Kind of like you asking me how to organize your garage when all of the stuff you have in it should be thrown out.

    I think the church at large has almost completely lost the idea of reverence in worship. I see a guy leading a concert in a room, getting people “fired up”, “having fun”, etc. I don’t think the word fun (in the sense it is usually used) should be part of what people think of when they truly worship.
