Nothing speaks up close and personal like a distant avatar on a computer screen that has no idea you’re there. Popular megachurch, LifeChurch.TV, which is pastored by Craig Groeschel–a close ally and associate of Andy Stanley and part of each other’s cultish leadership network–is now offering a “virtual reality” campus for those who don’t actually want to be around God’s people for corporate worship on Sunday mornings.

According to a post on Groeschel’s Instagram page,

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

Of course, virtual reality church is not actually church. Even to the limited extent you may be able to interact with others, talking to someone else’s avatar does not translate into being able to see each other face to face, greet each other with a holy kiss, or being able to bear one another’s burdens–some of the main reasons for biblical churches to actually meet in person.

We already know, however, that these organizations do not exist to glorify God or edify the saints. These organizations exist for the sole purpose of lining the pockets of the people–like Groeschel–who sit at the top of these leadership pyramids. Groeschel doesn’t care about the eternal state of any of the souls sitting in the pews or sitting on the couch with their virtual reality goggles on. He only cares about being able to attract more people to his own feet to grovel at him and give him money.
