Watch Grown Christian Men Treated Like Children As They Sing “I’m in the Lord’s Army” November 4, 2014

Watch Grown Christian Men Treated Like Children As They Sing “I’m in the Lord’s Army”

I’ve often heard the critique of religion that it makes adults resort to child-like thinking… but I’ve also been to churches where adults are treated like children. The pastor tells adults to fill in the blanks in their programs with certain words, there’s a lot of call and answer like you’d see in a first-grade classroom, the congregation is asked things like “Are we a generous church?

It’s just a weird form of infantilizing people.

And it doesn’t get any stranger than this:

These are college students at West Coast Baptist College. The dean of students is leading them in singing a popular fundy children’s song. With motions.

Those are adults. Human adults. Singing this song.

That is all.
