Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey

I am sorry. I don't even know what to say with this. This was apparantly at a revival and part of the service was singing the Hokey Pokey and then folks giving testimonies after they "put their left/right leg in"...

Can God heal anyway he wants? I am sure He can...This just seems ridiculous. I would pray that these folks get grounded in the Bible and not simply seek these emotional experiences. It kind of makes me sick. Where is the Biblical grounding?

As one of the commenters points out, "the video is simply great evidence that the lack of real faith in what is broadly called “evangelicalism” is wide-spread, and that hi-jinx like this have replaced liturgy, preaching, prayer, fasting, confession (both credal and personal sin), and humility."

We need to get back to seeking Christ and His fulness and not the Hokey Pokey. How far have we come that this passes as acceptable expression of the Christian experience or church service? There seems to be more to Christ than the Hokey Pokey.

By the way: You don't need to watch the whole thing to get the gist of it.

Your thoughts?
