Written By: Rev Peter Alabi –
I FROWN at Comedy, Comedians and Comedy Shows brought into the Church! It is not right! Never has been, Never will be!
Everything has its place. Let’s put things in their proper place. Christians can watch comedy on TV, go for comedy shows organised by these talented folks, but to bring that into Church?
Some call it strategy for soul winning! That’s ridiculous!
That people answered an altar call does not mean they got saved. It is what they hear that determines that. If We are serious about soul winning We should do what the Word says: PREACH!
“ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”: Mark 16:15 “ And he said unto them, Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.”
We MUST Train Our members to win souls and disciple by Preaching and Followup (Teaching, Prayers, Visitations etc), not by these funny gimmicks!
The bible way is not as expensive as paying comedians!
If Our members are sad and stressed there is more than enough Joy in the Holy Ghost that can make us laugh AT WILL, than any comedian can cause during Our gatherings! This joy of the Lord strengthens Us!
A gathering of saints should be distinct! Let’s STOP this bad behaviour in Church Ministry! What is bad does not have any other name – IT IS BAD!
P.S – This post was inspired by a conversation with a few young folks who had genuine concerns about this subject. Any form of coincidence was not intended but is not regretted!
