Please correct me if there is error in this comment….”From what I have observed concerning “praise bands,” it seems to me they are crying out to the congregation ‘See me, see me, see me, and how great I am!?!”
And after the show, the accolades and back patting they receive trump the precious name of Jesus Christ. So who really are we worshipping and who really are we praising?
I left this type of church system and have not regretted my decision in the least. I don’t want what they have, thank-you very much.

Yes, too many times I fear you are correct. I don’t know that it is always true but even in the best circumstances, the radio-style songs are not singable by the congregation and the content is sometimes not the best. In the worst cases, you would be totally correct. I hear that sometimes hired guns are used. These guys are pros and may or may not even have some type of profession of any sort of faith. It seems as so the show is more important than the people who see it… Sad.
Thanks, Ann, for visiting this blog and for taking the time to comment. I do appreciate it. God bless.
