    In this snippet, at what point would you walk out?

    During the rock concert “worship,” the Christless, it’s–all-about-you, pep talk, or the offering of a free week gym membership?

    Or would you sit through it all believing that this is somehow the same Christianity that 2,000 years of martyrs have shed their blood for?


    btw this video is about:

    Pastor Bil Cornelius of Bay Area Fellowship worked out during his sermons last weekend in an effort to inspire members of his congregation to get fit.

    Walking out would be pointless, because I'd never have gone in the first place, and going in just to go out again would be, well, pointless. Hmmm. :scratch:

    I'm sorry, but I would not have walked out on that sermon. There is no call to walk out on that type of thing, in fact, scripture NEVER tells us to walk out such things at all...

    I WOULD RUN!!!!!!!

    "If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment. For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content. But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen. " (1 Timothy 6:3-16, NASB, emphasis mine)

    We are not to remain a MOMENT in the midst of such vile human wantoness and self-aggrandizing; instead, we are to worship GOD and NOT the flesh. God is WORTHY, we are NOT!!!

    ...wow, ..the teacher and people who amass for themselves teachers who tickle their ears, I'm reminded of the verse saying to pay heed to the reading of the Word when gathered.
