Excellent piece today from Jared Moore. Take some time to read it.
We, being those of the SBC, are doing nothing about it. Replacing the proclamation of the word of God with dramatic thematic shows. But those who hold a dear view of expository preaching, and yes, I do mean preaching Christ crucified, and making the point the main point (thank you John Piper), would rather not ruffle the feathers of the those who clamor for more entertainment. Sunday morning worship begins and ends with our musical (um, choir) presentations.
I’m not at all advocating Sunday morning worship without music, or singing lustily (thank you Charles Wesley) unto the Lord. But I would much rather sing to the Lord than to be sung to.
