Dedicated to all who value style over substance. This is not (necessarily) about Joel Osteen. But it could be....
Throw Away Your Hymnals! Started Sunday mornin', in the usual way Load the family in the car, let's go get entertained Gonna head down to the churchyard, but it's nothing like a church Ain't got no sanctuary It's a multipurpose room Not a stained glass piece in sight We don't need no stinkin' pews Do away with old traditions Only new traditions will do We're more enlightened than our parents And all the church fathers, too!Chorus:Throw away your hymnals We got projection screens Don't make me read the lessons Or think about what it means Cuz our worship leader Looks so good on TV This is how we do church now Woe, Church is a Media Venture C'mon, get ready for some Gospel-free praise We won't preach at you 'bout sin, We just want abundant days No liturgy to remember; we repeat ourselves in different ways We're so focussed on our feelings, no matter what the Bible says!(Chorus)We need big numbers, numbers soaring so high We tell the Spirit where to blow Still through it all we'll find that This ain't the Great Commission; it's just the way we want to be The love of God takes us only so far; the rest is up to me, yeah! Oh, throw away your hymnals! C'mon, throw doctrine aside...(Chorus)
