What passes as “churches” today are not churches at all. One of the primary distinctions between the Church and the world is that the Church fears God. The false church known as Church by the Glades has absolutely no fear of God at all. None. This church exists for no other purpose but to entertain goats.
Church by the Glades in Coral Springs, FL, made headlines in early 2020 after its pastor, David Hughes, was selected by another Florida pastor, David Uth, to speak at the 2020 Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting. Church by the Glades has been well known for its carnality, worldly appeal, and extravagant performances of secular dance and music including the Stormtrooper Dance, Disney Medleys, and covers of Beyonce’s Freedom. And recently, the church performed a live cover of foul-mouthed rapper, Kendrick Lamar’s N95 which contains, in the original version, dozens of swear words, blasphemies, and references objectifying women.
Last week, we reported that this “church” put on a literal circus performance as it had people swinging from the ceiling and performing circus tricks to win people to their church. This week, they’re back at it again. As the old adage goes, what you win them with is what you have to keep them with. And, if you win them with entertainment, you have to keep them entertained proving Charles Spurgeon right when he predicted: “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats!”
Here’s a clip:
The entire sermon with the full video of the cover can be viewed at this link. The live cover starts at around the 17:30 mark.
