Southern Baptist Megachurch Worships to Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway”

It’s always something, and admittedly, this church’s band is musically talented. But it isn’t the talent of the guitarist or the vocal skills of the singers that are necessarily the issue—though these things often can and do become idolatrous. The bigger issue is that this church doesn’t have any idea who the God they say they worship is nor do they have any understanding of the price He paid to redeem sinners at the cross. For if they did, they would treat Him with the respect and reverence that He deserves rather than defile His house with secular filth and worldly entertainment.

Here are some examples of some reviews from visitors to this church that I found online:

Yet, this church is entirely absent the spirit of reverence or worship and is a complete capitulation to this entertainment-worshiping culture, which gives an excuse for these people to do what they want and pretend they have God’s blessing on it.

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.

If it isn’t foul-mouthed bands, it’s circus performances. If it isn’t a circus performance, it’s Hollywood. What passes as “church” and “worship” these days should invoke the righteous indignation of every true believer in the world. There is no fear of God in these churches and if Jesus were physically present today, he’d most likely be flipping over tables and driving out these money changers with whips made of cords.

The great preacher Charles Spurgeon once said, “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats!” He couldn’t have been more accurate in his prediction, not because he’s a prophet, but because he had a grasp on the biblical understanding of the nature of man and the doctrine of sin.

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 sensuality, 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.

In their latest attempt at pleasing the world and entertaining the goats, the church’s worship band puts on a cover of Tom Cochrane’s Life is a Highway. And while this particular song doesn’t have any foul-mouthed lyrics in it, it’s still demonstrative of the mindset that this church has toward God—the entire crowd gets riled up over a secular song that has nothing to do with God but you don’t see the same reaction from these people to the Word of God itself. They simply don’t care, they’re only there for the performance.
