Would you be more likely to attend a church service that followed traditional style worship ( Congregational singing and bible sermon), Or a new age type service with a group leading a praise service?

  • This is a general issue with polls, its not just asking a question, a poll needs to specify what is meant by the terms used. One of the mistakes here was using the term 'New Age' (which is a Satanic perversion of faith) which I believe, has misled several of those responding to the poll. The truth is that many churches have a good mix of modern and traditional in their services, catering for both the young and the more senior members of the congregation.
  • I'm agreeing with you, Dr. Blake. The way the question was worded made it sound like it was either traditional or contemporary worship, as if the latter disregarded Biblical preaching. When I hear "group leading a praise service", I think the very opposite of liturgy.
  • Mike, I think the discussion is not about discarding the hymns but rather about singing modern praise and worship songs and having a service that is more flexible rather than a strict liturgy. A service that allows people to worship from the heart, rather than speaking their praises parrot-fashion.
  • It's a false dichotomy. You can have modern-style contemporary worship AND sound preaching in the same service. Discarding the hymns does not necessarily mean "New Age" beliefs (I haven't heard that since the '90s!).
  • " they did not want a sermon that told them about sin but wanted something that made them feel good."
    This is what is the matter with the church of today, people want to feel comfortable, warm and fuzzy and ignore the bits that convict them of their sin, and why a good part of the church will not make it to the New Earth. If you ignore sin, you ignore confession and repentance, which separates us from God.
  • Thank you to all that commented. I have attended both and have heard those that commented that they did not want a sermon that told them about sin but wanted something that made them feel good. We are to praise God as the only one worthy of our praise but it seem to me that reverence is lacking in the praise services I have attended. I do know that satan will use any tool possible to turn us away from God so do not take anything for granted. Thank you for your response. Your fellow servant in Christ.
  • Traditional for me
  • I have practiced some new age worship before it was called new age. I don't do that kind of thing anymore. I got delivered from it. It is satanic even if it is given a new fancy name like new age. There is nothing new under the sun.

    What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9 NIV)

    Prayer, music and a Bible teaching bless me a lot. I like a smaller crowd, but a large group is good too.

    God bless,
    Mary
  • I agree with you Dr Derek P Blake , the New Age worship is satanic , the occult tool to deceive people , especially those who know nothing of the Biblical Scriptures or who know just enough they think just to get them in trouble, they are babes , and the New Age movement draws them into a place of false practices!
  • I do wish that everyone would stop calling modern worship, 'New Age', which is an entirely different thing and is based upon occult practices rather than anything Christian at all. Sure there may seem to be over-laps, with angels, prayer etc. but new age includes crystals, tarot cards, Ouija boards etc.
