Early on it started with Pride. Pride became bothered by Worship not being quite polished enough. He made a convincing and ultimately successful argument to spruce Worship up. Sensing a trend Church Growth got involved. Church Growth decided a spruced-up Worship would be an attractive avenue to further his agenda and redefined Worship as an evangelistic tool. “Just get Worship right” he proclaimed “and he will grow!” Soon afterwards Music came forward. He claimed that unless the right Music was involved Worship- regardless of all else- would always flounder.
As a result of the work of Pride, Church Growth and Music, Selfishness next came to influence Worship bringing along with him Tension and Strife. These three brought My Way in and together they turned Worship against itself often leaving it wounded and directionless. Worship still survives but wonders if he can ever just be Worship again.
