Hilarious. And sad.
bump to view at home.
i’ve been involved in comtemporary worship services for years, and i love them. i’m using a talent God gave me, to thank and praise him.
the bible is full of stories of people singing, clapping, dancing, shouting and generally enjoying praising their savior. why shouldn’t we continue with contemporary music? we are tasked with going into all the world to preach the gospel.. how can we do that if we can’t relate to people, or draw them to us? music is a universal language.
however, many churches do cross the line. when they get to the point where it has become pure performance for the sake of performing and showing off for an audience, i don’t believe that is still worship.
By the way, there's a little joke in here. The Hebrew tattoo deliberately incorrectly spells God's name. Instead of God's name (יהוה ), it says, ויהי , translated, "And it came to pass" or "And it was so." Of course the joke here is that people who get Hebrew tattoos really do not know how to read Hebrew at all.
< snicker>. Never, ever get a tat in a language you can't read.
And a real Hebrew probably wouldn't be getting a tattoo anyway.

Being commented in a couple Protestant blogs I'm aware of. Justin Taylor's Between Two Worlds and Scott Clark's Heidelblog.
It is hilarious. And too true.
And you know what's sad? The only difference between "contemporary" and "Traditional" is "Gaither Song, Gaither Song." instead of "CCM top 40 song".
