The Eroticization of Worship

Yes, it can be that bad. What happens when you get everybody into church, face them forward towards screens and a band (or a choir, or an organ, or an alter - whatever) and then sing songs about being "in love with Jesus"? Incidentally, church is the only place that this whole facing-forward-and-singing happens anyway, but are we really singing what we mean? My thanks to Al Hirsch and Matt Stone for pointing me towards this video of an interview with Matt Redman; watch it and think long and hard about this.
