I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Only One Reason for Praise Bands and Entertainment Evangelism -
Get Rid of the Means of Grace, Which They Reject




Do not be fooled - the reason for the promotion of Praise Bands and Entertainment Evangelism is plain -
Get Rid of the Means of Grace!

What did the Lutheran revivalists of the General Synod do - they promoted emotions services and ignored the Lutheran liturgy, Lutheran creeds, Lutheran hymns, and Lutheran sermons.



Long ago, Robert Preus wrote on a poster and sent it to Herman Otten - "WELS is worse than Missouri about Church Growth."

WELS repudiated the Means of Grace under JP Meyer and other false teachers. Into the vacuum rushed the Church Growth Movment.

A traditional Lutheran service emphasizes the object of faith - the Savior Jesus Christ. Hymns really matter.

Praise bands sing any garbage they want, and no one cares. The audience sits and listen. The object of the service - faith in oneself.

What is their messages? - Everyone is already forgiven and saved.
What is their Subjective Justification? - Have faith in our message of universal absolution and salvation.

A Time of Grace Hymn To Sing

Don't you love farce?
My fault, I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want-
Sorry my dear
But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns

Don't bother they're here
