In John 4, Jesus says to the Samaritan woman, "God is a spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." But what does it mean to worship God "in spirit and truth"? What are the implications of this text for our understanding of worship today in the American church landscape? That's what's on tap for this edition of the White Horse Inn (originally broadcast December 9, 2007).

    This program is as relevant today as it was when it originally aired. Why the focus on our story instead of God's story? I guess the church is following Robert Schuller who famously wrote in Self Esteem: The New Reformation:

    "Classical theology has erred in its insistence that theology be 'God-centered,' not 'man-centered'" (p. 64).

    The Church today has become man centered instead of god centered. Although Schuller has retired from his job as Senior Pastor of Crystal Cathedral his teaching continues. What is he up to right now? You can read it here
    http://www.christianpost.com/news/former-crystal-cathedral-pastor-robert-a-schuller-renting-out-home-as-spiritual-retreat-73201/

    His home is now a spiritual retreat being rented out for $700 a night or $5,000 a week. His put an add for his house rental saying
    "Robert and Donna specialize in leadership training, marriage renewal, financial counseling, mentoring, friendship building, nutritional and exercise coaching."
    You can read it on the link I provided above.

    Where's the gospel or Christ here? Nowhere to be found. Sadly he is considered a leader of the modern evangelical church and Rick Warren in his first book "The purpose driven church" calls him one of his key mentors in his spiritual development. So why is anybody surprised the church is in the state it is today?
