Recently I was talking with some fellow Christians about the book of 2 John. John was warning believers about false teachers. He told them to "Watch out!" This led to a discussion about how Christians can be led astray by sensationalism. It is nothing new; there have always been speakers who know how to get people worked up and excited. Often, this kind of speaker majors on excitement, minors on Biblical truth, and sometimes teaches error. Pastors often have to deal with this when the newest "sensational speaker" comes through town. I guess Christians are gullible and that's why we are called sheep. We get led astray easily if we aren't careful — especially if things are pitched as exciting and sensational.
Do we subconsciously think that we are only effective in serving Jesus Christ when we are all revved up? If we do, we will seek excitement and sensationalism and often discount faithfulness and dependability. I think we need more low end torque. I would hope that God's power and presence can be seen in us in our everyday lives and not in just sensational high rpm moments. This faithfulness in everyday life can be a powerful witness.
