More on Feel-Goodism

This is by no means one of Matthew Gallatin's best podcasts, but I liked the blurb: "If our choice of churches is based on how they make us feel, are we really interested in worship?"

And I liked these words, which I transcribed:

Unlike "personal fulfillment", true worship has no subjective element. It is a purely objective act. To worship Christ is to deny everything that I am. In the light of His overwhelming glory, I ignore myself. [In worship,] I am forgotten. He is the only life that I acknowledge.
