Non-Biblical teaching or acceptance of sin.

When they change "God added daily to the church those who would be saved" to "marketing firms would add daily those who would attend" (Acts 2:47)

When they purge older, experienced staff members for younger volunteers

When they neglect the weighter things of God in exchange for a constant preaching on "Jesus loves you"

As a Heathen, I can say the incorporation of religious elements utterly alien to the faith of the Aesir/Vanir, from what historical/archaeological sources that have survived, is a deal breaker. And generally anything hipster or "Social Justice Warrior".


I remember being invited to attend non-denominational Christian church services recently. I was struck by the level of "hipster" that I saw. The musicians looked like boy band rejects, their songs were trite and weak, and there were ironic haircuts and bad 20-something moustaches. Comparatively I remember attending Greek Orthodox Easter services as part of a religious history class I was taking, another lifetime ago while still in university. The contrast was rather stark. There was an intense sense of majesty to the entire religious experience.

As far as Christianity in America...well, I can imagine the professional flock fleecers and charlatans don't help things much. But they make for epic memes.

Using stupid gimmicks like playing secular music videos, movie clips, and LeBron James commercials in sermons.

God's word can do just fine on its own without stupid juvenile theatrics.
