By the way, I can’t hear a pastor say this anymore without thinking of this post and cracking up. Thanks a lot! :o)
(I’m no fan of altar calls, by the way. Just preach the word, the Holy Spirit will convict the soul.)

Thanks for visiting. I appreciate all those who visit and/or comment. The same thing happens to me. This humor/satire thing is a double-edged sword of sorts.
I don’t like the manufactured altar call either. Most seem to use emotional blackmail instead of response to the Spirit of God. Many also produce false canverts. I also feel that the Spirit of God will move when His word is preached in totality. An occasional altar call with no mood music or tinsel is OK if it simply allows people to get guidance in responding to God call. What do you think? Thanks again for visiting.

Truthinator, I’m with you – I don’t like the manufactured/emotionalism attempts to get “converts”, either. I fear the same thing you do. I don’t like manipulate means of trying to see people come to faith in Christ; I want to see real conversions and real fruit. As I see in Scripture, the Spirit will move when the crucified and risen Savior is preached, and people’s hearts are convicted, no (as you mentioned) “mood music or tinsel” required. However, I’m ok with pastors providing a genuine avenue for people to get guidance in how to respond to the Lord.

Yep, I fear you are correct.
