When Chris Rosebrough first began blogging on the Museum of Idolatry (the actual web address was www.alittleleaven.com) in February of 2007, this is how he explained it-and it's true today more than ever:
What has become of the Christian Church in America?
Answer: Too much of it has decided to mimic the world. Too much of it has stopped preaching about man’s sin and need for a savior. After all, that message is boring, passe and irrelevant to unbelievers. These new seeker sensitive, purpose-driven, Willow Creek wannabes have discarded expository Biblical teaching and have replaced it with man-centered, self-help pep talks that are appealing to the world around them. This was foretold in God's word nearly 2000 years ago by the Apostle Paul.
We are not called to partner with the world and pop culture. Instead we are called out of it and set apart from it.
Think of this site as a Museum of Idolatry.
This site is a collection of the crazy and worldy things that occur when the church decides to satisfy itching ears rather than faithfully preach Christ Crucified.
This site is a collection of the worldy insanity that is being passed off as church today.
This site is not positive. This site is not politically correct and it is not seeker-sensitive.
At times this site also makes fun of the idolatrous things that we're exposing. If that makes you uncomfortable, please consider the examples given to us in the Bible of Godly men making fun of those who follow after idols and false religion. The example set for us by Elijah on Mt. Carmel is one of our favorites.
We hope you find our collection eye-opening and we pray that it will spur you into action and cause you to consider what you can do to change things.
We believe that change begins with getting back to having the message of Christ Crucified for sinners as the center and substance of all of our preaching.
As we're building and expanding the brand new Pirate Christian Media website (at the end of 2015), we will continue to document and expose the growing apostasy that's pervading the church. Perhaps it will help you see the dark and wicked things that were right in front of you all along.
If you are comfortable defending and promoting the latest version of the worldly "church," we passionately hope you'll return to God's Word and carefully consider all that He has to say about the true Church and reject the teachings of men.
May God be given the honor He is due (which is long overdue!),
