    This is something I never thought I’d say, but I actually agree with Brian McLaren on “worship industry” point. We have indeed created a worship industry that caters to a select number of consumers. I believe as well intentioned as we have been over the years, we’ve let consumerism creep in and drive our worship. Personally, I believe the pendulum needs to swing back a bit.

    To his point of ‘honesty’ in art and music, be careful. To Brian McLaren, being honest actually means questioning the basic tenets of Christianity as outlined by the apostles, including substitutionary atonement, for example. So, while I believe it is fine to question God about His will, His motives, etc. in our art and in our prayers, we need to realize that there IS absolute truth and it is revealed in the person of Christ via the scriptures. May our art reflect that truth more often than the questions our human minds can conjur.

    McLaren has been on the fence about absolute truth in the past, which is why I’m leary of him. He is, however, spot on regarding an industry of worship!
