Wholly Laughter or Wholly Depraved?

The McClure United Church in Edmonton, Canada, made headlines because the pastor and some other folks decided to dress up like clowns and have a "worship service." The pastor, Jim Lochhead" said, "So often in our lives we live behind masks that are not immediately apparent...I think putting the makeup on in some way allows us to bring out a side of ourselves that we don't let out at other times."

He speaks as though the whole chicanery is a positive expression of worship. If this is so positive and worshipful, then why do they not do it more often? Is this a model that churches should duplicate around the globe, because it "allows us to bring out a side of ourselves that we don't let out at other times?" Is this a side of ourselves that lifts up the name of Christ, gives glory to God, and attributes to God all that He is worthy of?

Lochhead must be insane. This is mockery of all that worship is to entail. It is devoid of truth and Satanically driven. The attention is taken off of Christ and placed on a clown all for the price of a laugh.

Weird Thought, but True

It was pointed out to me tonight that in China you can only have one kid. That means that no one has a brother, a sister, an aunt, an uncle, or a cousin! And that means no family get-togethers! The only family reunion is with your grandparents!!!

Truth Quote of the Week

John MacArthur who doesn't believe in the modern-day speaking in tongues said last night, "It is better to speak in tongues than to gossip, because nobody knows what you're talking about when you speak in tongues."

LOL! How true!
