Tradition

The more I think about it the more I agree with Rev Jacob D. Eppinga.

His latest Cabbages and Kings he brings up the fact that the Church is loosing its traditions based on needing to be more seeker friendly.

A very good read.

Just sitting thinking

I was sitting in church today and came to the realization that it is all sugar coated happy, happy, joy, joy. In my mind with their attempt to appeal to the masses, with their band and every song being a praise, while this is good I feel that most of those songs are best done by a soloist or a group, they have forgotten to include any substance in the message. Todays sermon I feel was a prime example, I felt like I was back in high school chapel. Now I am no Luddite (although I play one) but I don't feel a PowerPoint presentation is appropriate.

Another thing, you would think that as I only show up every once in a while they would make note of this... but I guess as long as they get their money they don't really care. Sad state of affairs that is.

I am not looking for fire and brimstone, but I would like a little more substance. That and I will not drink from the third wave kool-aid. What I have issue with are some of the key elements of the third wave which are prophecy and hearing the voice of God, two-way prayer, healing ministries, and spiritual warfare and deliverance ministries.
Here is the Minority report and the Majority report. After reading both it comes to no surprise to me that synod sent back the majority report... "Delegates chose to recommit only the majority report for more study. “This, in a sense, aligns synod with the general direction of the majority study committee,” said Rev. Ryan Faber of classis Pella." This I don't agree with as feel good is the direction that I see the CRC going anyway.

I must say I like this view by the First CRC of Muskegon.


It might be time to look for a more conservative congregation or maybe the OPC...
