The funny thing about people is that we can take ideas that we like and fads to crazy extremes, and Christians are no exceptions. I freely admit that I am prone to do this. We take good ideas and tradition, and turn them into gospel, we can overdo some good ideas so much that they no longer have any real purpose behind them, and lots of times we do things for so long that we don’t stop and think how we may look to the world.
It’s good to take a moment and look back out ourselves and our actions, programs, etc., and contemplate whether or not our “stuff” is really meaningful or not. Today I just had to list a bunch of parodies of Christian and church activities created by Christians and non Christians alike. By recognizing the above mentioned tendency of people, it’s easy to laugh at these and ourselves, but maybe also consider if they point out elements in Western Christendom that perhaps should be reevaluated.
*So, if you need a good laugh, enjoy….and please don’t be offended by my post. I obviously have my own worship and church style preferences, but recognize that those of others are equally valid.
