Dancing with terrorists_???

A new dance craze called the Harlem Shake has been sweeping the churches around the world.  Although it is over 20 years old it went viral across the internet via youtube.

So many Christians are being led by the nose into adopting such fads without even thinking about what they’re getting into and/or promoting.

Today, as we were evangelising in Manchester, a group called “Jesus Manchester” (Aka, Making Jesus Known) which mixes rave style music with a watered down Gospel, message played the song and danced to the music.

This would be bad enough had it not been for recent events in Boston, Massachusets.  The lyrics that accompany the dance are as follows;

Con los terroristas
Ey Shake
Ey Shake
Ey, Ey, Ey, Ey
Shake, Ta. Ta
And do the Harlem Shake
Ey Shake, Ey

Songwriters: DELGADO, HECTOR LUIS / RODRIGUES, HARRY

For those who do not understand Spanish they read:

With the terrorists
Ey Shake
Ey Sha
Ey, Ey, Ey,Ey
Shake, Ta. Ta.
And do the Harlem Shake
Ey Shake, Ey

Why do supposed Christians believe it fun to shake it with the terrorists?

What is so attractive about the world to so many churches today that they would resort to such banal and ungodly displays like this piece of trash?

They loudly trumpet “We love Manchester”, “We love Jesus sooo much!” Yet this is how they show their love to Him?  What kind of love is this?

Jesus said;

“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”  (John 14:21 NASB)

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.  But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:17-24 KJV)
