A Closer Look At The “Seeker Sensitive” Movement

Here are a few brief videos that take a closer look at the phenomenon known as the “seeker sensitive movement”.

Video #1 – A Spoof:

Video #2 – RC Sproul Explaining the Fallacy of the Seeker Sensitive Movement:

The 1st video is funny – sad, but truly funny.

In the 2nd video, RC Sproul masterfully gets to the core of the seeker movement by asserting it’s fundamental errors: (1) that unbelievers are “seeking” God, and (2) that the purpose of weekly worship is to reach the lost. 

That last statement probably made you stop cold in your tracks.

Let’s face it, the job of every believer is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ – the Good News that if you acknowledge your sinful state, repent of your sins and accept Christ as your Savior, then you would gain eternal salvation and relationship with the Father.

It’s our daily job, evidenced by our daily lives. But because we don’t live the Gospel message, we assume that if we hit “sinners” over the head with a bat and drag them into church on Sunday, then the Gospel will “get into them” through osmosis and they would be changed!

So, the church and worship service becomes a marketing event that uses worldly tools (car raffles, coffee shops, provocative sermons, etc.) to attract new clients worshippers.

Sproul said it best:

If you want a power in your Church, be an expository preacher; preach the Word because that’s where the Spirit is. Isn’t that God’s strategy? If we believe God’s strategy, we’re going to preach the Word.

Amen, RC…Amen!

    More and more, I am seeing how far away modern christendom is from biblical christianity. The more you get into Gods word, the more discernment you get.

    In regards to the humorous video, I included it in my week of humour which starts at http://realchristianity.wordpress.com/2008/03/02/a-week-of-humour-day-1-prosperity-praise/
