Analogy / Metaphor… Who’s to Blame?

OK:  Sure, I often use Youtube videos to say things – Guilty as charged.

But sometimes there is a truth and reality in these formats… that, like it or not, are sadly missing from your churches.

So… Listen to this powerful song.  But do something as you do:  Substitute in your mind as you listen – the word “ministry” every time you hear “music” or “singing;”  substitute “pastor” or “minister” every time you hear the word “singer.”

And somewhere in all the mix, try to be human enough to really feel the true pathos here.  I know more people for whom this particular metaphor fits than I can count on fingers AND toes.  So who’s to blame for this sorry state of affairs when it comes to the reality of spiritual life?
