Trojan Horse in the Lutheran Church

Alvin Schmidt wrote a book several years ago, entitled, "Multi-culturalism: The Trojan Horse in America." If you want an honest analysis of how the ideology of multi-culturalism has affected and infected our culture, it is a very good read. Here's a spin off that thought. I would also call the Contemporary Christian Music movement the Trojan Horse in our Lutheran Church. Many churches accepted the music without critical analysis and thinking. It was seen as something harmless and even playful. What so many fail to realize is that the CCM movement is at the top of a very slippery slope. If you go down that road, it is very difficult to stop. The results are abandonment of Lutheran theology and practice. What we now see is the militant forces breaking out of that Horse and destroying our church. What can we do? Get rid of the Horse! Go back to solid, Biblical Lutheran worship! Don't allow the facade of the Horse to destroy us! If we continue to do nothing, it will continue to have an increasingly damaging effect. Just something to think about.
