World of Warcraft The Sermon??

New No Hope Church in Calgary, Canada has bought the purpose-driven / seeker-driven lie that church is for unbelievers and that we have to make it appealing to the world or they won't show up at our churches. Rather than boldly preaching the scriptures in season and out of season (2 Tim. 4:1-4) they've watered down and obscured God's Word and mixed it with things it was never intended to be mixed with such as the World of Warcraft. The result is a convoluted message and a painfully inauthentic grasping at relevance.

They might be more on target if they did a sermon on twister.

you maybe right


the seeker-driven church and purpose-driven church movement's gotten so many in the churches astray

and nonsense like sermons on world of warcraft are a example of it

Or Grand Theft Auto..... or Mario Kart...... how about Yoshi's Cookie? :rolleyes

As one who's played the game (WOW) this makes no sense to me. For one thing, why subject a whole congregation to a sermon full of references (to the game) that they' won't understand? Stick to preaching the Bible FROM the Bible... it's relevant all by it'self, it doesn't need "help".

My husband is an unbeliever and these sermons themed on worldly things totally turned off even the slightest interest he had into going to church. He thinks they are ridiculous and absurd. I have to agree, they embarrass me. How can you preach a sermon based on the Super Bowl or 24 or LOST or Survivor when the Bible explicitly tells us that we are to be separate and are not of this world and to throw away our old flesh and to focus on God. How can we bring the Light of Truth when it's buried in the murky darkness of worldly things =(
