Entertainment: Should there be a line?

I usually don’t mind some thought-provoking fun or a drama or even some special performances during church services, as long as it points me to Christ.  But as is the trend these days, there are often some very entertaining performances to be had in the Seeker-Driven model that is void of anything whatsoever to do with God, the Bible or, you know, the purpose for taking our families to a Sunday morning service.

Over at A Little Leaven’s Museum of Idolatry, there is an interesting video from a church in St. Louis that combines Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Ghost Busters and positive thinking. Now I did see some Scripture verses being used to make the banshees run screaming off the stage, but I’m wondering what kind of message overall we are sending to those in the audience (i.e. the newer Christians or the unsaved), who perhaps might take this in a way other than what the creative team intended?  And the use of the demonic walking dead, well, that’s another whole hot mess.

But at least it’s entertaining. Here’s the video:

    Here is a lesson we would do well to heed:

    They in this story acted out of presumption and God gave them over to the demon that they thought to get power over by using the name of Jesus.

    Acts 19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. 14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? 16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
