Religion as Comforting Entertainment

Michael Westfall bluntly describes America’s corruption and the churches’ too often ineffective response.

Let us start with worship. Has the Sunday morning worship in some churches become an exclusively predictable feel-good entertainment experience? Do many services begin with good music and a brief feel-good scripture passage followed with a honey-coated three point feel-good fluff sermon, catered by the preacher, that is totally devoid of the anti-God issues that we face in our lives, community and nation as a body of Bible believing Christians? If so, then this is very distressing for that church. Where is the hard-hitting worship? Where is the Holy Word relative to these critically important issues? Where is the activist church, and how is it taking on the issues of darkness in the communities in which it operates?
