"Traditional methodology - most noticably preaching - is being discarded or downplayed in favor of newer means, such as drama, dance, comedy, variety, side-show histrionics, pop-psychology, and other entertainment forms... In the past half-decade, some of America's largest evangelical churches have employed worldly gimmicks like slapstick, vaudeville, wrestling exhibitions and even mock striptease to spice up their Sunday meetings. No brand of horseplay, it seems, is too outrageous to be brought into the sanctuary. Burlesque is fast becoming the liturgy of the pragmatic church."

John MacArthur ~

Ashamed of the Gospel,
When the church becomes like the world

The church says: 

"Come to Jesus, He will make you happy, He will fulfill the desires of your heart. He will comfort you, He will satisfy you. All you have to do is say this little prayer and you will be saved and on your way to heaven.

The Word of God says:

"If any of you want to be My follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow Me." Matthew 16:24

"anyone who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me." Matthew 10:38

"To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps." I Peter 2:21

"I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does." John 5:19

"Follow Me."
