Though I agree that we must be students of both worlds- earthly and heavenly, I don’t think that means molding our worship services to appeal to the culture. We need to know the culture so we can communicate to it- not so we can mold any part of our worship to it. Worship is about God- it is not a form of evangelism. Worship should be lofty, awe inspiring, transcendent and reverential- because God deserves and requires that his creatures approach him this way. “God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be held in reverence by all those around Him” (Psalm 89:7). Though worship may indeed evangelize, the goal of worship is not to evangelize. The goal of evangelism is to evangelize and the goal of worship is to worship. We must keep them separate. Let us be ever developing our methods of evangelism to impact the culture in which we live, but let us not pluck the worship of God from its lofty perch. Though primary methods of evangelism may change from servant evangelism in one age to camp meetings in another, worship should steadfastly remain in every age reverential, lofty and transcendent. It is probably laziness and ignorance that drives the modern church to seek to kill two birds with one stone- evangelize and worship at the same time.
