Praise music like you’ve never heard before.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when I say “I think I’m going to throw up?” If you said “kids praise music,” then you must have listened to the Crazy Praize Volume 3 CD. The back of this kids praise CD boasts:

I think I’m gonna throw up. (I know what you’re thinking . . . is this really a praise song?) Of course it is . . . It’s Crazy Praize! (I think I’m gonna throw up – my hands and praise the Lord.) The third volume in this very popular series of wacky praise songs for kids features ten new songs, with equally silly motions guaranteed to produce giggles and guffaws every time. Great for kids worship times, or anytime, these songs are not only fun, but they’re loaded with Scriptural truth to reinforce the message of God’s love and grace in the hearts of children – young and old.

Why “of course” it’s praise music. We’ve been redefining what Christianity is for years, why just stop at doctrine? Why not redefine what praising God means too?

Welcome to Western Christianity where we pull out all the stops to make false converts of kids and inoculate them from the true gospel for the rest of their lives. A world where black is now white, up is now down, hot is now cold, dry is now wet, and juvenile potty humor is now “praising God.” A world where this type of foolishness is quickly becoming the norm, and those who still try to hold to a reverence for God are quickly and summarily dismissed as legalists, judgmental, and Pharisees.  Woe unto us.

Here’s the video to the song (with lyrics). Oh, and even if you can’t make it through the whole three minutes of this song “loaded with Scriptural truth,” be sure to listen to the last ten seconds to really get the feel of “crazy praize.”

This trash is so bad that it makes Rick Pino’s music (see here and here) appear like actual praise and worship.

I’m interested to hear from anyone who has or is using this for their children.

  1. First, “holy laughter”, now “holy puking”. Praising God? What an absolute mockery! If foolish men seek to incur God’s wrath upon themselves, that’s they’re business. But to lead trusting little children in this filth is an even greater abomination.

    “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.” Mark 9:42

  2. Amen DavidW!

    When I first saw this video, words escaped me! Sadly, this is the kind of drivel that many employ to “entertain” the children of the sheeple who are getting adult size doses of entertainment while they and their children are being driven down the broad road to destruction.

    The Desert Pastor

  3. Rev. 3. 14-17~ ” And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write ; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue (vomit, throw up, hurl…) thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest , I am rich, and increased with goods , and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”

  4. Aaaaarrrrrggghhhh!!!

    Enough, enough, enough!!!

    The only way the blasphemy could go any deeper is if the companion DVD allowed kids to follow the motions of “hurling jesus”, “buddy jesus”, “pie-in-the-face jesus”, and “crazy-clown jesus”.

    In Him,
    CD

  5. How much more do we have to stand before we start hurling? I sat there with my wife with tears in our eyes over this blasphemy. The delusion is so deep and strong now, that those very same people who made that “music” (or at least like that “music”) will inevitably comment on this very blog and defend their right to “have fun” and make ‘hurling out your sins’ a fun experience. Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrggggghhhhh, is right!

  6. Pilgrim,

    I think your previous post and this one are spot-on, pointing out the putrid stuff that passes for worship and service to the Lord of Heaven. If you want a beating for doing good, I’ll be glad to oblige :-) Or perhaps that fella from Florida with his “biker boots” could give ya a solid kick in the stomach. Now that would be to glory of God, eh?

    Grow not weary, my brother.

  7. More mindless 7/11 mantras to prepare the children for more of the same once they get older and advance to adult “praise and worship.” All to keep the funds flowing into the rapacious CCM money machine and to give people vacuous feel-good religion.

  8. Ah yes…I remember the days of yore! Standing there on our chairs in a circle. Embarrassed, sheepish, yet excited over that what our “anointed” and very cool youth pastor would do next. He was always coming up with something. Suddenly, he broke into (with actions as well)…”Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes, yes, yes Lord…”! AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!! The memories were gone at one time, now they’re back! Thanks a lot!

  9. I think i just threw up.I think i just threw up….my dinner to your song….thanks alot im not buying that CD. I thought the song was about Jonah and the whale.
    Grrrrrrrrrr?!

  10. We live in a time when anyone can take any kind of lewd, crass, ungodly, worldly behavior, claim they’re doing it “for the glory of God” and those that follow them will give them a wink and a pass.

    Would you believe “Belly Dancing for the glory of God“? And, of course, the Purpose-Driven™ sheep lined up to defend it.

    I…Kid…You…Not…

  11. fourpointer:

    “Kid” as in goat. But this belly dancing stuff so reminds me of Israel picking up the ways of the heathen and incorporating them into their culture, even into their worship.

    “Then He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun.” Ezek. 8:16

    Seems like Christendom today (so called) is falling headlong repeating error after error of Old Testament Israel.

  12. RGF asked about Veggie tales. Sadly, I have to admit that a number of years ago, when they initially hit the market, I thought they were good. I even (gulp) purchased some DVDs for my nieces. But in time, I came to see them as extremely problematic and downright blasphemous. Just as one example to clearly show their wickedness, the infant Jesus is depicted as a carrot in their christ-mass video.

    But hey, cartoons of Jesus are okay according to many, so many carrots are good too…

  13. As long as it doesn’t offend, right? And as long as it remains culturally relevant and as long as the artist/creator’s heart was pure…right?

  14. Welcome to Babylonian Christianity:

    Jeremiah 50:6 “My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; They have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; They have forgotten their resting place.

  15. Instead of condemning this song outright, watch a group of children sing it. They love it! And it shows them that worshipping God can be fun.

  16. bruce.fraser:

    So, justification of a “worship” practice is decided by whether the person doing it likes what he is doing?

    Are we to teach children to have fun in worship by being gross, or to worship the Holy Almighty God in spirit and in truth as the Scriptures command us?

    Consider carefully what God has said throughout His word about what form of worship is pleasing to Him.

  17. No, worship is not justified by whether the person likes it. But perhaps our pleasure in worshipping God it is a measure of whether that worship is authentic, or just following the ritual.

    I realize I’m walking a fine line here. On one hand, I read far too many comments on worship blogs like this: “I was SO moved by the worship today, it was awesome!” — as if the worship was for my benefit. On the other hand, I also hear people say, “Four songs: first two fast, then medium, then slow, to get us ‘in the mood.’ Then pastor preaches. Then we go home. Same old, same old.” While this is also me-centered worship, it also demonstrates how worship which is boring can be a barrier to meeting God. Whatever you might say about this song, it is NOT boring.

    So when I see children (and children-at-heart) singing “I’m going to throw up my hands and praise the Lord” — not just mouthing the words, but singing with pure joy — then I find it hard to condemn that.

    As for the theology of the second verse, I agree it’s not right. When I heard this, they changed the words to “hurl my fears out the door.”

    Finally, don’t judge the song on the basis of an immature song leader who thought it was “cute” to add the vomiting sounds at the end. You can any worship song and mutilate it: that ridicule doesn’t reflect the character of the song, but rather the singer.

  18. I think this is somewhat intense because I truly believe that at times you really want hurl your sins out the door.this song is basically corny but I don’t believe this is blaphsemy. And there times where sin has a greater stronghold infact too bounded by the flesh and symbolically speaking you need to vomit those impurities out. Think about it when your stomach Is filled with toxins It will naturally have to vomit that out.same thing here of the spirit of god is trying to take hold of the flesh it will have to cleanse it first by releasing sin (toxins) out And when holy spirit comes over you SOO strongly you literally feel like something has gotta leave your body in fact SO intense that your spirit man is vomiting out all that waste from your life. for the throwing up hands part I do feel that’s the best way to glorify his name but only god knows what was in their hearts when they sang this =).

    Correct spelling: throw up my Hand to the lord Well I guess it’s a different way to praise god but if it was me. I would want God to not Only release my toxins from my body but destroy my flesh completely so that he has all Control

  19. Dear Kim:

    So what you’re saying is that we dictate to God what is acceptable worship to Him? And that juvenile gutter humor about vomit is now an acceptable practice in the church?

    Could you please direct me to Scripture and/or church tradition to justify this stance?
