In looking through some YouTube videos, I have found some bad examples of worship– here they are:
This one, although it has very good Scriptural truths, is very culturally irrelevant. Funny song, but don’t try it out if you want reverent worshipers.
Or how about this one? Although it seems as though everyone is worshiping, I would point out that the song is unnecessarily repetative and leads no where. All I would know after hearing this is that Jesus spins me around like a dirty sock and that for the moment it felt good. Is this true worship?
These are just two examples, I know the first is a wee bit absurd, but the second is widely accepted by Churches across the nation. You see, in America, we are vastly overtaken with our desire for emotional highs to the point that we neglect things like truth, the Bible, and even God. This last example of what not to do should be obvious- my cousin (who disagrees with me on rock music being use for God’s glory) showed me this once. It’s poor quality, but watch all the way through. As mentioned earlier, dancing can most definitely be used as worship, but with anything, we must look towards what true worship is- that is, Word centered, God honoring, Christ glorifying, and Spirit empowered. It is never man centered, music empowered. Here it is:
As mentioned earlier- please be wise, find out what honors God and do it, let His Word guide you.
