Pom Poms

Pathetic Pom Poms

Being a disciple does not include attending pep rally type weekend events or so-called “church services” or “revivals” to get pumped up in your emotions with a hooray, hooray message from the circus leaders. The early church had no such staged events. Their fellowship was elemental and simple, all for the purpose of worshiping Jesus Christ (Acts 2:42-47). This event business is an industry folks. Billions of dollars are generated from them yearly. Perhaps not all who charge for an event or doing it immorally (there are expenses). But what is that event set forth to accomplish? Is it authentically about the divine Person of Jesus Christ and the sometimes grueling daily cross He commanded us to take up and deny self? Or, is it a pep rally to get people happy and want to tell their friends so they will all come back next time?

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:” Colossians 2:6-10

Remember back to when you were first saved and so new to Christianity that you felt obligated to go to every event or thing the local church or any ministry staged? Isn’t it a comfort to be rooted and grounded in the LORD, knowing that you are His and abiding in His love no matter where you are and that your place/relationship with Him has nothing to do with whether or not you are following everyone to these entertainment seminars?

“Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Hebrews 5:11-14

Ever notice how when we used to go to those events we still came home to us – we were not really changed? Why? – because hype doesn’t produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit – full surrender, dying, and abiding in Jesus Christ is where the fruit of His Spirit is produced in us. “LOVE, joy, peace ……” (Galatians 5:22-23) Perhaps we should learn to save the money, stop promoting false ministries, and stay home and fast and pray and seek the LORD ourselves or just go out and have fun with our family, friends, and the body of Christ. It is my opinion that God is much more pleased in these basic activities than following and promoting false ministries who thrive due to the multitudes of gullible people searching for a temporary high and emotional inflation.

Perhaps we should throw away the pom poms and get on all fours, knees and palms to the ground in a prostrate worship posture, calling upon the LORD to break us deeper.

“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:12
