Prayer and a Lava Lamp

The "old" way of praying was to go somewhere and bow before God and pray. Now days that's too old fashioned so the Emergent church has had to update this whole prayer thing. Now, if you want to pray you can click here and type in your prayers and you will see some blobs go up in a lava lamp. I'm not kidding!

On the page that answers some questions about this lava lamp prayer thingy under the question "Do I have to Pray" this was the response:
Of course not. We thought some folks might just like to use the lamp as an aid to meditation - watching the blobs can be very relaxing and help you focus. It's also very groovy for parties should you not be able to afford a real lavalamp - and someone can always leave a prayer whilst reaching for the twiglets (although they're probably praying that you'd switch the computer off - this is a party...)
They are serious about this whole thing! It would be funny if it wasn't so sad that so many people are being sucked into the modern "emergent" church movement. God help us!!

  1. While I believe that there is a time and place for "worship aids", I don't think this virtual lava lamp falls into that category.

    Would this be considered to be the emergent church version of a Catholic priest? Does the lava lamp function as the intercessor?

  2. Good point!

    Who needs intercessory prayer when you've got a lava lamp?
