“Sensationalism has nothing to do with the truth of scripture or the transformed life of the believer. It is a cheap and sleazy imitation of Christianity, focused solely on miracles, entertainment, and drawing crowds.”
(The Dissenter) The proliferation of sensationalism in the contemporary Christian landscape is a dire and ominous phenomenon that threatens to undermine the very foundations of the faith itself. From the gaudy spectacle of circus acts on Sunday mornings, to the saccharine and emotionally manipulative strains of worship music, to the self-aggrandizing oratory of charlatan preachers, to the sideshow antics of so-called faith-healers like Todd White, the use of cheap tricks and shallow appeals to emotion has become all too common in the effort to sell Christianity to the masses.
Make no mistake, these purveyors of sensationalism are nothing less than charlatans, frauds and hucksters who have abandoned the true gospel in favor of a cheap and tawdry imitation. They are driven by a lack of faith in the power of the gospel to save and a desperate need to make Christianity appear “cool” or otherwise appealing to a lost and dying world.
