It's that time of year for C3 (Creative Church Conference), or maybe better described as "Training for Creative Goat Herders". Their promotional videos gives us a sense of the unsavory flavor they're about to release. Note the Word of Faith declaring and decreeing (really just shouting) by Steven Furtick:
Some quotes from the video.
"Church should be the most creative entity in the universe."
"Hearing from God, allowing God to use your uniqueness in your context, to communicate His glorious Gospel."
What does the emphasis on creativity and uniqueness confess?
Relying on "creativity" and "uniqueness" (buzzwords for stagecraft) is an outright confession that the word and sacraments that God gave his church are not enough. No one will come right out and admit the obvious belief system that's being demonstrated here:
"If you want to attract a big crowd, you've gotta put on a big show."
Jesus instructed Peter to feed his sheep in John 21:17. Matthew 25:32-33 tells us Jesus will separate the sheep from the goats.
These Christian leaders are being taught how to entertain goats, not feed the sheep.
