The New Gospel is Attractive?

Dr. Gary Gilley, of Southern View Chapel, visited Ireland and spoke on issues concerning the church today. This video is the second part of a four part series on the damning indictment of the market-driven churches that are so popular today. This second video is an introduction to the church in the age of entertainment. Dr. Gilley contends that the church has sold out to our culture so that the influences of the culture have become the influences in the church. The most significant forces pressing against the church are entertainment, market driven philosophies and psychology. These three are largely absent from the Bible, yet are startlingly prevalent in evangelical churches. The leaders and issues he concentrates on most are Rick Warren and his book The Purpose Driven Church, Bill Hybels and Lee Strobel.

That was an interesting video.

(See my comment on "slice" from your linked post for my take on the whole thing.)
