Drunken Worship Leaders

13 Feb

It’s a sad day in the Kingdom!

Antinomian “worship leaders” using their so-called liberty as occasion for drunkenness and  vile vulgarities has now become all to common. Little wonder, local churches reject biblical standards  and flagrantly refuse to administer anything akin to restorative discipline. If you do, you are labeled a cult. If you don’t, you are called a “grace” church.

The Reformers called these libertine types “false churches”. I beer_keg_manstand with the Reformers!


“…it is increasingly common to hear about worship leaders getting drunk after church services and dropping f-bombs while they boast about their “liberty” in the Lord.”

“One of my closest ministry colleagues posted this on his Facebook page last year: “There was a knot in the pit of my stomach this afternoon after I hung up the phone with a friend of mine who pastors a growing church in our city. He relayed to me an anguishing story of how some members from his worship team were hanging out with other worship leaders in a key local church. He reported to me that his team came back from that hang-out experience quite perplexed as the f-bombs were flying from the openly and unashamedly drunk worship leaders.”

Another pastor told me that he sent a number of young people from his congregation to train in a ministry school known for its worship. All of them came back to his church with a drinking problem, the result of hanging out with other “worshipers” in the ministry school. And on and on it goes.”

    Scary article. I am in full agreement with his denunciation of drunkenness and vulgarity among God’s people and even more among those who lead God’s people. But his use of the priests and alcohol and the laws against mixtures is incorrect. The prohibition of priests using alcohol in God’s presence was eschatological not normative for all believers in all ages. As priests of the New Covenant it is the blessing of God that we can now partake of wine in His presence. The mixtures in Leviticus were forbidden for the average Israelite because they were “holy” not unholy. The tabernacle and the priests garments were filled with these mixtures which is why they were forbidden for the rest of Israel.
    But I digress……it is the lack of Biblical Theology and a covenantal understanding of alcohol (among so many other things) that has led to this disaster in Evangelicalism. Across the board we lack sound doctrine and theological maturity, basically this is what happens when you give whiskey to a two year old.

    Hey Richard, Any chance of your site adding a Facebook link so we can click to share? I am having difficulty pulling up your Facebook page for Antagoniz if you have one. Of course, we are not so electronically savvy, lol. Prayers, Kathy
