Sunday Morning Entertainment
I had a dream where I was back in a church in Tucson. I do not attend this church or any traditional building called church as this is not where the Lord has called me. Back to the dream. In the dream I was in this church and my wife and I were seated upfront so that we had a very good vantage point from which to see. Whether or not it was known that my wife and I were present was not disclosed. What I saw was people dressed in theater garb. I saw some jump up on stage and say, “let’s create an event “, . I am not sure of the meaning of the previous phrase but include it here as that is what I heard said.
Not once while there did I hear Jesus, or the Cross, or any reference to God mentioned.
What I know about theatre is that people go to be entertained. The people on the stage are pretending to be someone they’re not.The main goal of the stage performers is to entertain so that people will come back and hopefully bring others to see the performance.
I am sure that this dream is true of many church buildings where people gather. I’ve seen signs here in Tucson touting how cool a particular church is.
Jesus said, “John 12:32
And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”
When Jesus is not welcomed nor His Lordship acknowledged it becomes man’s church and not that of the Lord Jesus Christ. So the church with the best entertainment, the best programs, and the best feel good,ear-tickling message along with a celebrity preacher has the most people. People have their identity associated with such.
