Below is the introduction of No More Whacky Worship
Much of our worship is whacky. By whacky, I mean worship that just does not make true spiritual sense. God declared in Isaiah 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
To what avail are our acts of worship, when we dishonor God in our behavior and lifestyle? With the increase of sin, and spurious doctrines many believers claim to be true worshippers while living lives that discredit God’s glory. Some claim individualistic worship while totally ignoring the necessity of gathering with others in a local church. True worshippers embrace both private and corporate worship. True worshippers honor God in their lives, hearts, and lips. God wants no more whacky worship.
True worship is in Spirit. Therefore it is more than the form and ritualism, but must be with true submission unto the Spirit of God. True worship is more than lovely singing, beautiful sanctuaries, oratory praise, and organized services. It must be in truth – no one can ignore the foundations of the Christian faith, while claiming to be worshipping God in truth. Furthermore, God is looking for true worship gatherers – those who gather together to worship in truth. Gone are the days of secluded worship. Gone are the days of hypocritical worship. Jesus is looking to move in the lives of true worshippers who also gather together in His name.
If you were looking for a normal book on the subject of worship, this is not it. This takes an unconventional look at the subject. First, it addresses the increasing habit of secluded worship, and rampant Christian individualism (claiming Christianity in name while rejecting church attendance). Secondly, it addresses hypocritical worship – honoring God with church activities while participating in behaviors, and beliefs that dishonor God. Thirdly, the book explores our freedom to worship in Spirit and truth both corporately and individually. Enter into the time of true worship for the days of whacky worship are over!
