I only went to visit this church one time and did enjoy the music, the preaching was OK. But, it was super long. 2 hours. Got a bit hungry. LOL It wasn't a special service, I don't think. So 2 hours is too long for me when I didn't eat much before hand.
To be far, I didn't attend the service mentioned above but as far as God not loving Jesus, I believe that she, the pastor's wife, may of meant that God had to turn away when Jesus, as He can not look at sin, when Jesus took on our sins. Not that He stopped loving Jesus. She didn't explain it well it seems from the comment.
I do not like mega churches in general either but sometimes I go to enjoy the praise service. I do think the churches are getting away from the old time type of services but I do like more of the modern music but I don't think we need to go this far with the bells and whistles all the time. It is too bad that baby Christians are so used to it that they may not enjoy a good preaching service with out all of the fun stuff. I guess the needs of young Christians are different and they need see that Christian's are not boring or that we have some artistic flare also.
But as long as people know that a pray does not save us, it is following Jesus after that prayer that reflects that we excepted His gift of life. That we have Him as our King and Leader and do what He wants us to do and we died to ourselves. I hope this message is getting out there.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son....
Look up begotten and see what it means.
I do have concerns for these types of churches and would love to find a home type of church in this part of town. If anyone knows of one, can you post it here.
