Disco Died for a Reason!

The pastor - excuse me, he prefers "speaker" - at Element Church in Chesterfield, Missouri will continue his sermon series in the weeks to come on the subject of "CRAZY LOVE." Using "Romance Hits Of The 70's," the sermons roll on this Sunday. Next up, the attendees will "learn how to keep your relationship alive in, 'Stayin' Alive,' and not to mention keeping that flame burning in your romance with, 'Disco Inferno.'" Last week's sermon was based on the song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."

Amazing! We've come a long way from men of God composing great songs of the faith based on the message of the Bible to now co-opting the message of the Bible to fit worldy songs from an era in complete antithesis to the worship of a holy God.

A while back, the same church preached this message:
THE GIFT OF YOU! If you listen to the archived message, you will learn that "God has given this world a special gift and that is the gift of you. You have probably never thought of yourself as a gift, but you are. Learn more about how important you are and how to unwrap all the great things God has placed inside you."

I wonder what songs they sang that day? This might be a sample order of worship:
  • I Exalt Me
  • Now I Lift My Name On High, How I Love To Sing My Praises
  • There is None Like Me, No One Else Can Do The Things That I Do
  • I Am Why I Sing, I Am Why I Live
  • O Come Let Us Adore Me
  • How Great I Am
Regarding the current sermon series, I picture Travolta walking down the street with the BeeGees hitting the high-notes in the back ground: Well, you can tell by the way they preach the Word, they are worldly men, sure to lose! Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh - staying alive, staying alive!
