Video on Making Your Baptism Stylish Causes Christian Outrage

Peter Guirguis controversial 21 Comments

Since a lot of people are still on break because of Thanksgiving, I’m going to be releasing the guide to getting thousands of followers on Twitter next week.  So be sure to stay tuned for that.

In the mean time, I share with you this video that gets filed under the heading of, “Oh my gosh, are you KIDDING me?”

I first saw this video and I was outraged and alarmed at the same time.

Nevertheless, I had to share it with you so that you can know the current state of Christianity in our country.

One friend of mine thought this video was a parody on baptisms.  I assured her it’s not Yell.

So what do you think of the video?  Should we do anything about it?

    I can hear John the Baptist going off on this. Talk about not having a clue.

    • Peter Guirguis

      I totally agree with you Jerry, John the Baptist would have given this video two thumbs down, way down :-(

  • David Hill

    When I had my baptism done, they just did it in the auditorium of the church. Poured a pitcher of water over me on the stage. Simple as that. Of course they asked me some simple Christian theological belief questions first.

    • Peter Guirguis

      And that’s the way it should be done, so simple and so beautiful.

      It must have been amazing, Dave :-)

    Although if you want to experience something real, you can always go to Israel and do the real thing. Going into the River Jordan and do it there.

    • Peter Guirguis

      I hear that people who get baptized in the Jordan have a great experience. Not that great baptisms only happen in the Jordan, I’m just sayin’ that I’ve heard great testimonies.

  • Kimberlee Lockhart

    I don’t see anything inherently wrong with this other than the message is completely missing. I mean, there’s no scripture that prohibits wearing a nice white dress and releasing doves, as long as you stay on point, which is accepting Christ and being redeemed by his blood.

    • Peter Guirguis

      It just seems so superficial and shallow, shouldn’t the emphasis be on what Jesus has done for us instead of how everything looks?

  • Trenton Durham

    This is the most ridiculous thing i’ve seen in a while. Since when has the sacrament of baptism become a “fashionable thing”. Its not about fashion, or a party, or cake. It’s not even about you. It’s about Jesus. Thats it! Someone should (politely) beat the director/writer who thought it was a good idea to make this video. This is such a joke.

    • Peter Guirguis

      I totally agree with you Trenton. Can you believe that some people on Twitter said they saw nothing wrong with the video!?!

  • Heike Rice

    hmm.. the cake is the centerpiece of the room? I actually thought it was Christ and the person who gave their life to Him that day… silly me! This is ridiculous!

    • Peter Guirguis

      My point exactly, thank you Heike!

  • Collie Coburn

    Wow! I’m stunned! Question: what kind of cake does Calvary Chapel South Bay serve at baptisms? ;)

    • Peter Guirguis

      Lol, Collie that was hilarious! I’ll have to ask Pastor Steve :-)

    • Peter Guirguis

      LOL, that was hilarious Collie!

      Uhm… chocolate :-)

  • Wade Beard

    Absurd and out of touch with God completely. Yet hilarious to watch.

    • Peter Guirguis

      Lol, I agree with you Wade. I suppose there is a certain entertainment factor in the video.

  • Pearle Johnson

    So is this person a Christian I heard nothing about Christ in this video….. you understand what I mean…. I dont watch the show but she just kept saying stuff about purity but nothing about Christ….

    • Peter Guirguis

      That’s a very good question that you bring Pearle. I really have no idea…

    Sorry about that, it looks like owner of the video chose to make the video private after he had made it public.
