Churches I Don't Like


I know this is old, but some things need repeating. The words "errant foolishness" spring to mind, and just in case you're a glutton for punishment, here's another.


Have a blessed Sunday,

LSP

Many people I know who attend church, do it for the "entertainment value". The sermons are carefully crafted to dance around sin and the music makes you want to tap your foot.

I have a different opinion, but don't often express it.

Teresa said...

Oh my goodness. That was horrifying. That is not the proper form of the Liturgy, or Mass that is appropriate within the Catholic Church. This is not the type of Mass that I attend on Sundays.

I will be reposting with a linkback.

LL - nothing quite like liturgical tap-dancing. Sometimes silence is the best option...

Teresa - you'll forgive me for disturbing your Sunday! I hope you get to go to the Latin Mass - I prefer it as a rule.

God bless.

Parson, we're already rattled enough with the seemingly unending pedo drama playing out (repeating in my mind: sleazy practitioners do not invalidate transcendental truths)
and now this.

Was Father Pfleger involved?

Whatever works for these people works I'd imagine, it sure doesn't do a thing for me. Now to sound like a true social worker, at least these people are in a church vs. being out in the world committing crimes or doing something nasty.

Have a great week LSP and thank you for the differing views on the whole church concept.

It's not just Catholic Churches: I went to a Presbyterian Church (PCUSA, of course), that I otherwise liked, except that they had an interpretive dance during the service. It is just kinda weird and awkward in my opinion.

But then, there's, 1 Corinthians 10:23-33. I guess what works for one congregation doesn't have to work for another.

LSP said...

It'd be interesting to find a Pfleger dance instance, Silverfiddle... I'll second your truth point.

Nicely irenic comment, Bluesun!

bluesun said...

Yeah, but then if you ever have a visitor to your church, you also shouldn't be antagonizing them. There are probably lines that should be drawn, even if "all things are permissible."

LSP said...

For sure, Bluesun.

God bless.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Dean O - the Apostle has a point...
