Guts Church (yes, that’s their real name) put on a Christmas play called Hip Hopera that can only be described as a confusing, convoluted, discombobulated adventure in narcissism, worldly values, and the culture of self-adoration. I kept watching this train wreck expecting it to make sense at some point but it never did.
This self-absorbed Christmas play of worldliness was supposed to convey a message that there’s more to Christmas than getting stuff. However, after watching this display I went away feeling that the Lord Jesus was not only not honored, but He was strangely absent; upstaged by the “relevant” performance.
See you if agree: You can check out their Hip Hopera video on their website by clicking here.
And I’m still scratching my head as to why they portrayed a prepubescent boy oogling the prepubescent girl who walked across the stage (heed Jesus’ warning in Matthew 5:27-28). Perhaps someone can explain that one to me.
If you want to see more of what this “church” is all about, check out this short promotional video in which they boast that at one of their October events called The Nightmare they “scare the hell out of people” (for the sake of the Gospel of course) and that after going through The Nightmare 12,000 people prayed the “prayer of salvation.”
Welcome to Christmas in Laodicea.
