Are Christian Musicians being taught to manipulate you?

Here is another gem folks. Some musicians both secular and Christian are being trained under the guise of communicating with their audiences. The plain truth is its mood and feelings manipulation. You are taught the latest cool rocker moves etc.. Performance coach And Ive been on some many teams where the leaders state we are not to perform so why go to a performance coach? Than they send you to a clinic to learn to perform Check this link. and decide for yourselfs what is going on here and what is taught. In my opinion this is audience manipulation folks. Sorry we dont need anymore cool rocker moves in church. What we need is musicians and singers who worship God on their own time and then come lead people into worship.
The problem in church is the worship leaders are trying to be sensitive to the audience instead of being sensitive to God.
Worship God and the congregation will follow. Leave the entertainment behind. Dont let some one mask the word communication with a false meaning. Anyone can be taught to get a responce from a audience.
We need to start worshipping in spirit and in truth. The only one that can teach you that is Gods Holy Spirit through His word.

As for our Entertainment Driven Performance taught false worship leaders and their bands.

Amos 6: 5-6 "You sing idle songs to the sound of the harp, and you fancy yourselves to be great musician, as King David was. You drink wine by the bowlful and you perfume yourselfs with exotic fragrences, caring nothing at all that your nation is going to ruin. Therefore, you will be the first to be led away as captives. Suddenly, all your revelry will end."
Again this is only my opinion and my observations.
Peace Tim
