I'm not sure this leads people to Jesus....

If it reaches just one person and leads them to Christ then I say JOB WELL DONE.

I really hope that these people who are judging Tim's humor do not attend churches where the pastor tells jokes, funny stories, or uses any humor in his messages. Now THAT would be hypocritical, in my opinion.

Elisa Nascimento No, this isn't a church service; it's a comedy show. And it is FUNNY! But I sure hope your pastor doesn't dare to crack any jokes or use humor in his sermons.

Its not about being self-righteous re imitations of whomever (Led Zeplin), or being funny; it is using the words of God and His name 'in vain'; to me that it what doesn't make it funny, but grievous as honour is not there.

It is hilarious! One of the most important things in life is to be able to laugh at yourself.

Hey Nova Buchanan...btw we are called "Led Heads" lol No wonder people don't want to be called Christians anymore. You all take yourselves TOO SERIOUSLY! Jesus had a sense of humor...you should too. Lighten up!

Sadly, this IS actually what passes for a lot of worship music these days...

6. “If heaven were by merit, it would never be heaven to me, for if I were in it I should say, ‘I am sure I am here by mistake; I am sure this is not my place; I have no claim to it.’ But if it be of grace and not of works, then we may walk into heaven with boldness.” ~ Charles Spurgeon.

I agree Ann! That's not "entertainment" ... it's a distraction from focussing on GOD!! xx

  • 2012-11-13T18:11:08

WOW! So many people on here saying that a number of us are being pious, self-righteous, or 'playing God! We are not claiming to be any of those things, nor are we throwing stones! We are entitled to our opinion as much as the next person! Entertainment is great in the right place.... and YES God did create the sense of humour. But He didn't create it for people to mock Him or other Christians! We don't need to 'lighten up', as so many people are saying! I love modern worship music in church, but this really isn't pleasing to God. This kind of thing doesn't help you focus on God but rather the man! If we are Christians then our focus should be on GOD and not this sort of thing that people call "entertainment"!

Amen Faith!

I totally agree with you Ms. Hamill. It's so sad. I know he's just trying to be funny but he should think about Who he is using as the punchline. I would suggest people read "Why I Left the CCM Movement." Excellent read and really changed the way I think about CCM. God is HOLY, PURE and PERFECT. There is no need to joke like Tim did in this post.

DON'T JUDGE! I believe that God uses whatever it takes to win whomever HE WILLS! And yes! He uses this to win those and to bless those who this reaches. PRAISE GOD FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO SPREAD HIS LOVE AND MERCY! Even if this offends you! We don't see things the way that God sees them. "Matthew 7:16-20 King James Version (KJV). 16 Yes shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits yes shall know them." We have no idea how many people this man will WIN for Christ. I love it!
