Title: Actors Whip Easter Bunny at Church Show

Actors Whip Easter Bunny at Church Show
GLASSPORT, Pa. - First, the Passion of the
Christ. Now, the torment of the Easter Bunny? It
may not have been as gruesome as Mel Gibson's
movie, but many parents and children got upset
when a church trying to teach about Jesus'
crucifixion performed an Easter show with actors
whipping the Easter bunny and breaking eggs.
People who attended Saturday's show at
Glassport's memorial stadium quoted performers as
saying, There is no Easter bunny, and described
the show as being a demonstration of how Jesus
was crucified. (April 8, 2004, AP via Yahoo news)

CHURCH PLAYS

What is the difference in our use of plays
during Vacation Bible School and those the
denomina- tional world who uses plays for
teaching? sic And thats a fair question
because here at Jackson Heights a couple of
times, in fact last year, we used a couple of
plays in doing that. (Ken Weliever, Plays,
tape)

  • Just a different method?

15
I really think that the question, at least in my
view, has to do with teaching methodology. Can
you use this method of teaching in order to be
able to bring about teaching about the word of
God? And I think that to begin with that we need
to understand there is a difference between the
message and the meth- od. Now there would be some
that I think that may would disagree with that,
but I think a lot of it has to with that. sic
That all of us understand that the message is
unchangingGods word is infallible, its
inerrant, it is unchangeable, but the method
through which we may bring about that word, or
teach that word, or transmit that word does
indeed change. (Ken Weliever, Plays,
transcribed)

  • Plays cannot do what preaching can
  • Charge, 1 Tim. 617
  • Command, 1 Tim. 57
  • Convict, Jno. 168, cp. Acts 237
  • Declare the whole counsel of God, Acts 2027
  • Exhort, 2 Tim. 42
  • Preach the kingdom, Acts 2025
  • Reprove, rebuke, 2 Tim. 42

IV. TO WHAT DO PLAYS LOGICALLY LEAD?
18
TO WHAT DO PLAYS LOGICALLY LEAD?
  • Women preachers, 1 Tim. 211-12
  • To the church praising men rather than God,
    Eph. 321

19
Applause 1. the act of applauding approval, or
praise acclamation approbation publicly
expressed. 2. demonstration of approval by hand
clapping, cheering, shouting, etc. (Webster)
20
TO WHAT DO PLAYS LOGICALLY LEAD?
  • Women preachers, 1 Tim. 211-12
  • To the church praising men rather than God,
    Eph. 321
  • To the facilities necessary to put on plays

21
When I think of a play I think of a pageant or a
production or some type of full scale
presentation that is more geared to entertainment
purposes. I would say that one of the
differences has to do with the fact that what we
have done at Jackson Heights in days gone by has
been much more what I would call role playing
than a play or a pageant. Where you simply have
youngsters and adults who are reading the
scriptures, that are basically acting out a
little Bible narrative of eight or ten minutes as
opposed to where people come together with all
kinds of skits and sets and production and sound
equipment and lights and all this kind of stuff
and to put on a three act play that takes and an
hour and a half or two hours. That is one of the
big differences that I see. (Weliever)
