If you took away the need for audience praise I'd be very supportive of this activity to foster togetherness and cooperation.

I do not like things that need applause from an audience to receive a sense of worth doing. If something is enjoyable in the setting of a shared human experience, great. Chances are we will not be playing ping pong during our normal meeting times for the whole assembly.

I doubt many overseers have carved out space in the meeting time to lower a screen and turn on the projector to show the softball game that men in the local fellowship played in.
Isn't it funny that you say the above, but when pastors preach and it's silent, they ask for an 'amen'? LOL!

I guess it's ok to ask for validation when preaching so they can receive a sense of worth doing, right?

I'm not really into the "dance teams" but at a youth congress doing something fun to get kids pumped first thing in the morning is entirely different!! Especially if it is being done in a holy way!

As long as you aint' shaking you bootie or moving in a way to create lust who cares if you are worshipping! Everyone has their own differnt way to worship....I don't do anything to cause attention to myself...I wouldn't dance in the world in public and the same goes for in church. I have jumped up and down a few times and only danced/shouted a few times...it's just not me but I will do it in worship.

Well, I think that this Congress was the Best I have ever been to and I think Todd Gaddy has done an awesome job and I hate to see him go. I don't think anything they have done has caused anyone to backslide.

Ya know, my husband is a dancer - when he was in the world he partied and danced ALOT! LoL! He still likes to dance, when the music is on he will be moving to it, not in a seductive way or anything and he loves to have fun. He only listens to christian music so he is never dancing to worldly stuff....I don't for one minute think it is going to send him to hell.

I think that the big deal is that, outside of Pentecostal churches, you will rarely if ever find anyone doing a shockamoo in the average protestant churches today.

However, more and more you WILL find people doing the flag thing, or the choreographed dance thing, or the stick thing.

So I think that for many people the issue is that this way of worship is just too close to what everybody else does. It's like losing your sense of identity.

What a wonderful Godly example! Armpit hair hanging out the arm hole of a woman's 3/4 length sleeve. Oh but wait! FULL LENGTH SLEEVES are the answer....... .

Point being....

Things change! Every thing thats new that comes along isn't wrong! And we don't have "bible" for over half the things we do!
