So The Oxygen Network has a new reality show destined to lift up the American Church in the eyes of the world.
Or maybe not.
May I introduce you to Preachers Of LA.
Now. Let’s have a little bit of a discussion.
I’ve worked in all sorts of churches.
Little ones and big ones.
I’ve worked for pastors who drive nice cars and ones that drive junkers.
I actually could care less WHAT kind of car you drive.
It’s the attitude that disturbs me.
I’m saving up for an El Camino.
So I can roll East LA in East Nasty.
And I’m gonna trick that pony up.
But this trailer is actually a bit nauseating for me.
Because it’s confusing.
In once scene it’s pretty much a 2Chainz video and in the next it’s leading someone to Christ. (I placed that link in there for you mom)
I think if you chase Jesus, honestly, it’s impossible for it to be about YOU anymore.
And we are dangerously close in many churches I see, to elevating our pastors past pastor and into idol status.
I don’t know any of these pastors.
They don’t know me.
They seem like they are probably fantastic humans with flawed theology. Kinda like me.
I’d probably be friends with that one skinny divorced fashion diva dude.
I just think this is a bad idea all the way around.
Now it’s your turn…
