As I mentioned before, my morning commute is long and I use the time to learn the word of God via the radio, however when I discovered that the teachings of Ronald L. Dart were horrifically unbiblical I had to find a new source for listening.
So I switched back to a local Calvary Church station, however at 5:00 AM their teacher is Levi Lusko. To be honest Levi grates on me, his constant, nonstop pop-culture references and unending attempts to be funny and 'relevant' (for me at least) diminish God's word. I understand that he's trying to reach out to younger Christians, but survey after survey after survey shows that churches pretending to be "relevant" is one of the main things that are driving kids away from the church. Our kids are smart, they know they're being pandered to and "relevance" is merely a ploy to keep the hipster goats in the pews, our kids want the real thing, the pure Gospel, two testaments, both barrels.
My attempts to ignore the non-stop one liners and Lusko's attempts to move the Book of Ester from bronze age Persia to New Age America was slightly successful, but the laugh-track yuks Lusko was eliciting from the congregation really got annoying 10 minutes into the sermons. Rather than feeling fulfilled, educated, and closer to God because I learned from His word I felt unclean and empty because I felt that His word was being taken away from me. And then, as if to remind me that He gifted me with a modicum of discernment, the Holy Spirit tossed me a grenade.
