    holy God… I am so out of touch. Do people really call that worship? Or was it a spoof? All that music crap – where is God?

    Yes, it’s a spoof. But it’s an on-target spoof of how many churches do Sunday mornings these days.

    If you haven’t experienced a Sunday morning service like the type the video mocks (portrays?), you mustn’t have visited many Protestant churches in the last 10 years or so.

    This is exactly the kind of church I just left.

    I am almost speechless about how accurate it really is, plus or minus a couple minor variations.

    I wonder if the same phenomenon would be observable if you took a scholar, an atheist, and a fundamentalist from Liberty University and were able to scan brain activity while listening to a sermon or reading the Bible. My guess would be that the phenomenon would be similar, but of course, testing would be required.

    I’d use an Obama speech or clips from Twilight as a control.

      If you’re headless, how do we know you’re a unicorn and not just a horse?

    FWIW, it appears that North Point Community Church (Alpharetta, Georgia), Andy Stanley’s church (son of Charles Stanley, pastor of First Baptist Church, Atlanta), did this video. Not sure if they’re mocking their own services, or those of other Christians.

    Very interesting….

      Yeah, there’s a real irony in the fact that this video was made by the type of church it parodies. When I first watched it, it seemed a lot more like a satirical indictment of that type of service, pointing out the limitations and flaws in that type of medium. I wonder if any members of that church felt uncomfortable after watching it…

      to quote a friend: “It is like watching a morbidly obese person mock unhealthy eating.”

    Well this video certainly points out that ‘yes’ as men we are all creatures of habit and ‘yes’ we cling on to formulas or fads that work. Fads do fade away and left behind is either the Word of God was preached and heard, or wasn’t. There was a slight giggle factor to a couple portions of this parody, but it also made me a little queasy. Parodies are of the world, Christians. Topics of church function should be discretionary to ones tastes and fashion. I don’t attend a church with mostly senior citizens singing old fashion hymns and having potluck every Sunday, but it is still good for those who do! Among the small group of folks who did this I’m sure it was done light-heartedly and at there church level probably comical.

    This is just North Point’s humorous way to challange Christians to think outside the box and challenge ourselves as to what our faith is really about.
