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.
“…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.”
