The Museum of Idolatry: Relaunch!

When Chris Rosebrough first began blogging on the Museum of Idolatry (the actual web address was 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.

For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
— 2 Timothy 4:3

We are not called to partner with the world and pop culture. Instead we are called out of it and set apart from it.

Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
— 1 Corinthians 5:6-8

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.

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
— Ephesians 5:6-10

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.

And at noon Elijah mocked them, saying, “Cry aloud, for he is a god. Either he is musing, or he is relieving himself, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.
— 1 Kings 18:27

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.

And I, when I came to you, brothers,did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
— 1 Corinthians 2:1-2
Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
— 1 Corinthians 15:1–4

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!),
