Megachurch’s ‘MetaChurch’ Announces 6 Virtual Salvations

Two months ago we wrote about one of the largest churches in America announcing that they have joined the #Metaverse, digitally recreating their church so that those who wish to attend church services and interact using virtual reality may do so, in a move that has major implications for the future of the church and the use of digital media within the space.

Back in November, Craig Groeschel of Life.Church, (LC) an 85,000 member, seeker-sensitive, multi-site based in Oklahoma that has nearly 40 locations, made the announcement on Facebook, announcing that they had joined the metaverse and that anyone was free to join their space. Unsurprisingly, their pastor and lead visionary is an awful preacher and habitual scripture- twister, making it par for the course that he’d be on board for something like this. While LC is not the first church to join the metaverse, it is by a factor of 1000 the largest and most prominent.

In a nutshell, the Metaverse is an online virtual world that incorporates augmented reality (AR), persistent virtual worlds which exist in real-time even when you’re not playing them, videos, the use of Virtual Reality headsets and hardware, 3D holographic avatars, and other means of communication. Though still in its infancy, as it expands and develops, it will begin to offer a hyper-real alternative to the world for people to co-exist in.

This last week, one of the pastors at Life Church, Ryan Sharpe, announced that the metaverse church had grown so large, that they had to create another room, on account of having so many virtual attendees. He also announced that 6 people within the metaverse “made the decision to follow Jesus,” likewise pointing to the way it was connecting believers who might otherwise not have attended.

He also posted a few pictures and videos of the service.

Of course, Life.Church simply assumes that this is healthy, and this sort of virtual reality attendance is acceptable to fulfill the requirements of not forsaking the assembly of believers.

As one astute commenter wrote in response to this news:

“I imagine for anyone who is actually saved through this, the very first urging from the Holy Spirit is likely to be “Get out of the Metaverse. Now. And never go back.”

  1. I make 85 dollars each hour for working an online job at home. KLA I never thought I could do it but my best friend makes 10000 bucks every month working this job and she recommended me to learn more about it. The potential with this is endless.

      1. LOL. I don’t blame you for attempting to impersonate me, Johnny/Johnny’s boyfriend, as I’ve owned you for months.
        The question is, how long can you stand to post without your flags of sexual perversion or spouting idiocy such as “all Jewish people are saved,” your “mega church” and “major corporations support racism and BLM, or that all anti-vaxxers and conservatives are “white supremists,” etc. I’m betting not long as your atheist, perverted, and ignorant worldview coupled to the undisputable fact you are a feckless dumbass means you simply can’t help yourself 🙂

    Do you think that your speech is Christlike? I dont think you ever repented of your sins ; I really dont! Your CCV “churchianity” has produced this kind of ongoing fruit in thousands . You dont act any more righteous than the man you are chewing out! This isnt a once off either. You continue to act like the world.

    I just want everyone who reads these comments to understand that your behavior is NOT indicative of one who is born again in Christ and made a new creation. Your behavior is not that of one who is renewing their mind with Gods word and one who walks in love and humility. Your name calling is like satan. Your behavior is indicative of a false conversion!

    I pray that the Lord draw you unto himself and save your wretched soul. I pray that the Lord break you and mold you! In Christ holy name,Amen

    1. This coming from someone who has condemned a fellow Christian for attending a large church? The same person who viscously attacked the owner of this site and pastor, JD Hall because his suit didn’t meet your haughty expectations?
      Remove the plank from your own eye, pharasee.
      Stop posting using my name as it paints you not only as childish and vindictive, but also as a coward.
      I rebuke YOU and suggest YOU repent of being a pompous, religious blow-hard, and worry about yourself.
      I fear only God, and you ain’t him Teresa.
