It has been common for me to hear Christian ministers and missionaries tell me that we should not use words that todays generation doesn't understand. Words like "sin" and "repent" need to be re-phrased as "mistake" and "change". The Ten Commandments are now the ten suggestions. The Bible is now helpful rather than authoritative. And worship leaders fight very hard to remain marginally less than 30 years behind the contemporary music of our day. In keeping with that train of seeker sensitive thought, how about someone tell the clown in this video that the word "record" (ie. a vinyl LP like what my father listened to in the 70's) disappeared ten years before any people in this audience were even born!
The fight for many "churches" to be "relevant" just continues to trawl new depths of sheer stupidity. How about a semi popular gay-band song from the 80's that most of us can't even remember? Setting aside the obvious personal hygiene issues that this video raises, try and contemplate the creativity required to take an old song and replace one word with the Name of my Lord. Why not try preaching the riveting subject of the person and work of Christ! Why not heed this rebuke from Art Azurdia:
