Preaching From Commercials (NOT The Bible)

Wow. You can't make a spoof that's more ridiculous than this actual video from a mega-church:

The Museum of Idolatry: 30 Second Theology...From Commercials NOT The Bible

This is everything that's wrong with the "seeker-friendly" church summed up succinctly in one little promo video. The worst part? When he says "watch what God will do in you and through you!" So if you bring people to this highly-entertaining and flesh-pleasing event, "God" will do "something" and it will be "through you!"

     It's like they've got God waiting backstage, and after He's been kept there (during a speech about TV commercials) He'll make an appearance. I already know when He'll show up: it'll be at the end of the service when the pastor gets all emotional and the praise band starts playing manipulative, soft music. This pattern will be duplicated in "successful" churches all over the country.
