The Church is Entertaining Itself to Death
Our society’s addiction to pleasure, amusement, and entertainment is likewise celebrated in the church. It is painfully evident that Christians in the West are comfortably able to conceive of the Godhead and Christianity through the prism of entertainment. After all, much ministry today, evangelistic or not, is entertainment or based on entertainment-type formats. Even in the pulpit, many pastors and evangelists are unable to finish a sermon intermittent infusions of (rehearsed) humor to keep the congregation amused and attentive.
