    A little blasphemous to me. What would Christ think. Don’t put to much energy into condemning the traditional churches, which have flaws-no doubt. Get out there and LIVE the WORD! They seem to be ridiculing every aspect of Christian service. Tithing? Yes, that is part of it. If you don’t want to put money in an offering plate, trust me, there is much need all over the world. e.g. Bibles to our brothers and sisters over-seas, prayer books to those in prison, followers building simple churches in remote ares to spread the good news…The work is everywhere, and the rewards come by the “joy” of seeing people know the freedom and abundance that is in Christ. (not to mention your reward at His return.)

    I’m a sixty something guy, I think theses guys had something to say about people playing church, they weren’t just trying to tear down the church, maybe trying to awaken some. Just my take.

  • DebbieG

    Loved it. I know so many “Christians” who are just like this. Self centered, instead of Christ centered.

  • Southern Female Pastor

    That’s too ubercool for me I guess. Sure there was a point but I missed it.

  • musa kunene

    I like it but;; i think we should leave according to the word of God, preaching the truth

  • Fin

    This is blasphemous… but not to God- to Macklemore. Parody works when it’s done well. This was awful and I’m embarrassed for everyone involved.

  • Cam

    Too much American Christian Cheesiness for me in this one! I like parody when it’s done well. If it’s done well it will be all over social media in a flash, and I’ll be on the front row pushing it! If it’s good Christian parody I’d make sure my unchurched friends saw it.

    I’m not going to show this to anyone!

  • Ark

    Made me uncomfortable to watch it

    WELL THIS IS AN AWESOME CHIP I LOVE IT WE NEED NOT TO LIFE A PRETENSIVE CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE IN THE EYES OF THE PUBLIC BECAUSE THEY READ US LIKE AND OPEN BOOK. LIVING FOR GOD DOES MAKE US WHO WE REALLY ARE IN THE EYES OF THE NON-CHRISTIAN LET TRULY LEARN TO STOP BEING SO SELFISH MINDED. FOR A LONG TIME NOW ALOT OF PASTOR HAVE BEING ROBBING THE CHURCH {THE PEOPLE} AND TEACHING THEM TO GIVE IN TO THEIR BOSOMS AND SOWING A SEED FOR A WORD AND IF YOU DON’T HAVE MONEY YOU CAN’T GET A WORD. LETS RETURN TO THE DAYS OF ACTS WHERE WE ALL SHOULD HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON THE HOLY SPIRIT ACCORDING TO ACTS 19 VS 1-41 STOP WITH THE SORCERY AND THE I SEE AND STOP LEAVING THE HOUSE OF GOD HUNGRY AND STARVING . THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME ON THEM AND THEY PROPHESIED, PREACH THE WORD OF GOD EVEN IF THEY WERE NOT RECEIVED AND CONTINUED FOR TWO YEARS AND MIRACLES,THE SICK HAD THEIR ILLNESSES CURED, EVIL SPIRITS LEFT PEOPLE, DEMONS WERE DRIVEN OUT OF PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. THERE WERE EMMITATORS TRYING TO DO WHAT PAUL WAS TRYING TO DO AND THEY WERE BEATEN AND THEY RAN OUT OF THE HOUSE NAKED AND BLEEDING AND THOSE WHO DID NOT BELIEVED CAME AND OPENLY CONFESSED WHAT THEY HAD DONE BECAUSE THEY WERE SEIZED WITH FEAR AND THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS HELD IN HIGH HONOR. YES STOP THE TRADING IN GOD’S HOUSE AND START TO GIVE INTO THE BOSOM OF GOD’S PEOPLE AND WE WILL HAVE A GREAT REVEAL IN THE LAND IN THE WORLD. AND THE UNBELIEVERS WOULD NOT HAVE TO SPEAK ABOUT US LIKE THIS AND WE SHOULD NOT FEEL OFFENDED BY WHAT THEY SEE CAUSE ITS THE TRUE AND THE TRUE HURTS SO LETS CORRECT IT B E L I E V E R S IN JESUS CHRIST KATHYANN HOLDER FROM BARBADOS THANK YOU.

    While some of the comments “may hold water”, the video did do a good thing. It got
    those who watched and called it blasphemous; an embarrassment; and worse to actually think about their own faith in Christ and attendance to Church. Those who thought this to be negative, really? How many times has God Almighty used “parables” in bringing those into a level of accountability? How many times has God brought attention to people’s poor behavior? Does it really matter the method? God is not a respecter of persons and surely will not today or tomorrow. Seems those who are complaining have issues and their practice of Christianity. I got the message very loud and clear. The only shame I have is that I am not doing enough. Whether it is finances, abilities, or being away and work. Remember, back then, there were no cars; cell phones; trains; and the list goes on. Yet, the Gospel spread clear across the world. How about going across the street? Too far?

    Obviously it’s better than listening to the original Thrift Shop song with all of its swear words – and that is what the kids are listening to. But I had hoped for a better deeper message.

  • MervK

    Can’t see this advancing God’s Kingdom in any way. It actually draws attention to the original video and all its swearing. How many times did they study these lyrics to come up this lame parody? Probably could have used the time and resources better than trying to look so much like “the world”. Sorry guys… Not funny. God tells us to “flee from all eniquity”, not flirt with it.

  • EMF

    Goodness, it seems as though many of you are looking too deep! Enjoy it at face value as a funny video for entertainment; not to tear down the Church or offend others.
