10 Signs We’ve Created Worship in Our Own Image

mirror1.   God hates the same styles of worship we hate.
2.   Inspiration begins and ends with one music genre.
3.  What we deserve and have earned are worship planning yardsticks.
4.   We can plan, control and explain everything that happens in worship.
5.   Our worship always requires someone else’s sacrifice.
6.   What we sing or how we sing it determines God’s presence.
7.   Worship is planned to perpetuate past feelings or promote future ones.
8.   Musicology instead of theology is our starting point.
9.   Preparation and presentation centers on the creative instead of the creator.
10. Worship starts and stops with our opening and closing songs.
