Church by the Glades, the Southern Baptist Convention’s flagship circus located in Coral Springs, FL, is a 10,000-member goat farm that is known for its extravagant performances and professional renditions of profane secular music and dancing. Some of its more famous performances include the Stormtrooper Dance, Disney Medleys, and covers of Beyonce’s Freedom—and more recently, the church performed a live rendition of Kendrick Lamar’s profanity-laden N95, which is rife with obscenities, blasphemy, and objectification of women.
Under the leadership of its lead pastor, David Hughes, the church has become a literal circus, with its acts of entertainment taking center stage—the essence of true worship and devotion is completely lost. True believers worldwide should be incensed by this distortion of the faith, as it lacks the reverence that God deserves. Were Jesus here today, he would undoubtedly express his displeasure by flipping over tables and driving out the money changers who exploit religion with this false gospel for profit.
The famous preacher Charles Spurgeon once spoke of a coming time when clowns would entertain goats instead of shepherds feeding the sheep. His insight was not prophetic, but rather a deep understanding of human nature and the doctrine of sin. But as we witness the clown show exemplified by Church by the Glades, we’re pretty sure that even Spurgeon would be astounded.
This week, the church began a new series called Searching for Unicorns. Of course, you can rest assured that the series will not be centered around the gospel, a call to repent and believe, and an exhortation to be obedient to the commands of Jesus Christ—rather, as usual, it will be designed to attract lost people to fill the pews, pay tithes, and enrich the pockets of the staff at this church without offending anyone.
As part of the series kick-off, Hughes brought a horse onto the stage adorned with a unicorn horn. Just watch and see what an absurd gesture this was pulled off at this church. If your pastor ever does something like this, leave that church immediately.
