[%] Dr. Al Mohler, doxologist

I know you're waiting for me to say something interesting and thought-provoking, but I'm busy. In the mean time, I suggest you begin reading Dr. Mohler's series on worship and start thinking about the meaning and object of worship.
This has influenced the whole pattern of church life and even brought into being a new type of church architecture designed to house the golden calf. So we have the strange anomaly of orthodoxy in creed and heterodoxy in practice. The striped candy technique has so fully integrated into our present religious thinking that it is simply taken for granted. Its victims never dream that it is not a part of teachings of Christ and His apostles. Any objection to the carryings-on of our present gold calf Christianity is met with the triumphant reply, "But we are winning them." And winning them to what? To true discipleship? To cross-carrying? To self-denial? To separation from the world? To crucifixion of the flesh? To holy living? To nobility of character? To a despising of the world's treasures? To hard self-discipline? To love for God? To total commitment to Christ?
What? You thought "worship" was the Christian word for "singing"? Let Dr. Mohler disabuse you of your misuderstanding ...
