I’ve spoken many times regarding the sacred cow of worship, this article nails it down in many ways.
Check it here, “Is your church worship more pagan than christian?”
But, but, but! What about the scriptures that talk about “coming into His presence/temple/gates” with “thanksgiving and praise”? What about “he inhabits the praises of his people”?
Wrong covenant, sorry.
Inspired by the comedic words of a “blue-collar” comedian,
“If you think that singing songs is what moves God, you might be a pagan christian.”
“If you think that God needs to be entertained for his Presence to come, you might be a pagan christian”…. i could go on, but I’ll stop.
