Let Us Put Away Childish Things

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech ... (1 Timothy 4:12)



I may have nightmares about this for weeks.

  1. We can all sleep in tomorrow. I've had my sermon for the week. Unbelievable.

  2. A real howler! If I was the preacher at that church I would amend my "style" a bit!

  3. There is so much that can be said about learned behavior based on that vid as opposed to true worshipers worshiping in spirit and truth since a 2 year old can't know what he is doing.

  4. I agree with all that was said. All I kept thinking was, "Praise Jesus. Now will someone help me change my poopy pants". Funny at first but then it gave me chills in that it reminded me of the speaking style of Hitler. I went to google some Hitler speeches to see if I was way off on that comparison and found that our little friend here was already being compared to Hitler on youtube. That is horrifying as well (it's his parents who should be held up for criticism). I guess I'm most horrified at the use of an innocent child to sell something to people that is beyond the comprehension of the child.

  5. Uhm, I'm definitely on the disturbing side of the equation. Not because the kid learned that "style" from (the/a) preacher - it can be effective depending on the words that go with it - but because:
    1. The pastor gave time to that display which mocks God and man.
    2. Even more, the congregation saying "Praise the Lord" and "Thank you Jesus" and the man (pastor?) trying to get the kid to end with "In the name of Jesus".

    A kid acting like that at home and everyone laughing is one thing. To put a kid acting like that "in the pulpit" and have the church praising God for it is a wholly different matter.
