Stormtrooper Crotch-thrusting at Church by the Glades!

Another "worship" spectacle that spoofs itself:

So let's take an inventory of what's going on here... We've got a "church service" that looks like a drive-in movie (with real people in real cars); a strange dance tribute to Michael Jackson, PSY, Beyonce and... Star Wars; and an opening skit with two people portraying Chewbacca and Princess Leia. What were these people thinking?? 

  • Maybe Church by the Glades was trying to visibly demonstrate the total depravity of all human beings?
  • Maybe somebody thought that Stormtrooper costumes would create visual and aesthetic unity for the three otherwise unrelated songs (Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Gangnam Style, Single Ladies-Put a Ring On It)?
  • Maybe they took this idea from Britain's Got Talent?
  • Or, maybe they were just trying to maintain their top position in The Museum of Idolatry?



For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
— 1 Corinthians 2:2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
— Romans 12:1-2
It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God.
— 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
