Competitive Worship

Drawing from Hemant Mehta’s book I Sold My Soul on eBay, I began to observe how people worship God in singing. And after reading some of his observations, I could not help but chuckle when I saw some of the very things he wrote about. Check out his perspective:

It was amazing to see certain Christian dance moves being repeated by people at various locations in the auditorium. There was the praising with one arm reaching high, the praising with both arms raised, those same moves with the index fingers pointing to the heavens, the index fingers pointed while the hands moved back and forth, the same moves with elbows kept at the person’s sides. Some people’s eyes were open while others’ were closed, and sometimes one hand would be placed on the heart. The multiple variations are too numerous to list here. I wondered if there was an unofficial competition going on between people seeking to out-praise one another.
