I've been thinking a lot about this since the Pastor in IL was shot. One news article I read said that many in the church thought it was a skit. A skit? For real? Would a church put on a skit with a gun? We've gone the way of Hollywood, haven't we? We're numb to reality, aren't we? What happened to little families sharing the same pew (or row, or floor space), listening to the preaching of the word of God, and allowing the Spirit to move in their hearts? When did we turn to childrens' church, complete with puppet shows? When did we turn to babies/toddlers in the nursery, watching Veggie Tales? And what about teens having popcorn and watching Left Behind? I'm not saying that God cannot use those things. He doesn't fit in man's box. What I am saying is that I think that the church has been sucked into the rut of entertainment and feel-good community, and are lacking an old-fashioned, Holy Ghost meeting! /end of rant.
