We came across the video above by a pastor of a church and we thought it was great and good for us to watch and then respond.
The main thrust of his strong message, which many who understands would refer to as strong meat is that "the house of God, that is church is been brought to ridicule" & that the altar is been desecrated. Some who don't understand spiritual matters would be quick, to poo poo or belittle what the man has voiced out. In this era of conformity and blending, cracking jokes in the church is seen as nothing, some even claims that God is a joker! A very absurd and terrible thing to say about God, for it denotes unseriousness.
The times we are living in now is supposedly the era of grace, so some things are supposedly allowed especially, many of those things considered as sacred is now brought so low. To not conform is seen as being stiff.
The pastor went on to buttress his points, asking if any comic/comedian can go to the shrine of Osun the water goddess or the mosque or a place where the Moslems worship to be cracking jokes?
It is that time as a Christian that those who profess to be one, need to carry their flags? They need to speak out and show on which side of the divide that they are standing on?
Is this like the call made by Moses at a time on Israel that afterwards judgement came immediately, when Korah, Dathan and Abiram did what was despicable?
Whose side are you on?
What's your sincere thought about what the pastor has raised?
Should comedians be performing in churches ?
