Has Worship Sunk To A New Low In The Bible Belt Of The USA?

I just read a very disturbing article by Jonathan Aigner. It seems that “Make America Great Again” is Now a CCLI Licensed Christian Worship Song. How can churches sing this kind of lyric which is contrary to the Kingdom of God? You can read the full article clicking on the headline below:

 

“Make America Great Again” is Now a CCLI Licensed Christian Worship Song - READ ARTICLE

 

Below is an excerpt from the article. I would urge you to go to Jonathan's blog and read it in it's entirety.

"But how tragically this prayer cancels out the prayer of Jesus himself. 

The political church prays: 
“Make America great again!” 

Jesus prayed: 
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” 

The political church prays: 
“Build up our empire!” 

Jesus prayed: 
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” 

The political church prays: 
“Give us what we want.” 

Jesus prayed: 
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” 

The political church prays: 
“Pour out your favor on us!” 

Jesus prayed: 
“Your Kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” 

The political church prays: 
“Let Republicans get elected.” 

Jesus prayed: 
“Your Kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” 

The political church prays: 
“Help us pass laws to make American evangelicals more comfortable.” 

Jesus prayed: 
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

    Noel, This is why we have done what some call relational, simple, house, organic, one2one church (call it what you like) for many years. One teacher, who for over 30 year was a "worship leader" has written extensively on this topic. His latest article, "The Hidden Idolatry in Charismatic Worship Feeding the "Worship Experience" Beast" may interest you. it is available here http://stevecrosby.org/praise-and-worship/charismatic-worship-hidden-idolatry
