The great Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon once predicted that “a time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats!” He was correct, and that time is now. In recent years, there has been an insidious but increasingly prominent rise in the foolish charades masquerading as the ministry of reconciliation. One such example is listed here.
The Bible refers to God as both the Lion of Judah and the King of Kings, but the Bible does not mock God by comparing him to a pagan cartoon movie with a soundtrack created by a flaming homosexual.
Yet, one megachurch pastor decided to do just that.
Mark Hughes, the pastor of the Canadian megachurch, Church of the Rock in Winnipeg, recently preached a sermon from a set made to look just like the set from The Lion King. According to the church’s Instagram page, “This Easter we will be transported to the African Savannah to discover the true meaning of Easter along The Lion King movie characters you know and love!”
That sermon is below:
What’s worse, though, is that this church does this regularly. In fact, almost every YouTube Easter sermon on their page has some kind of movie or cartoon theme including Toy Story and The Avengers.
Expect this foolishness to increase in the coming years as false churches, false teachers, and wolves in sheep’s clothing continue to water down the gospel and use it to fulfill their own selfish ambitions.
