Why are so many people so worldly?

    I guess my pet peeve is when churches feel they have to incorporate every new social trend into the church services in some way.

    A friend was telling me her churches sermons for the past few months was the gospel "according to the Beatles".
    I was like...excuse me? Of course there is the U2 series now as well...

    I guess when you have no tradition you take what you can to make it into something...

    oh, and the new trend...Starbucks type set-ups in churches so you can have a mocha latte and danish during the service that you watch on a big screen...
    I don't understand...

    I don't think dressing nicely and in what you feel comfortable in is a sin either, MsDahl. :) I was really kinda venting at the beginning with regards with the constant new social cause out there that I get in another forum. Then, it got into trendy clothes and such. I personally don't have a big interest in the newest fashions, but that doesn't mean I think someone is worldly who wears them. It would depend on if shopping is their lives, obsession or such.

    Last May I took a couple of Advanced Placement tests for school and we actually tested at a Baptist church that was almost next door.

    When we all walked into what must have been the sanctuary, I see two or three drum sets, a grand piano, two keyboards, an assortment of guitars and two large projector screens.

    The first thought that came to mind: THIS is supposed to be a church!?

    But I digress...




    However much a person is attached to whatever is between them and God. I get concerned when someone does have a heart attack for not having their cell phone for two hours.:)
