I hate when this happens:-)

You are in a worship experience and all of the sudden people are holding their hands up legally. For Baptists, the rule used to be. It's OK to hold your hands up in worship as long as you are holding someone else's hands. (I suppose this is to preserve order and keep people from waving their hands back and forth or doing the "rockn' roll" sign.

It's also embarrassing to decline participation in these religious hand holding events because you don't want to be the only one not participating. People will wonder if you are a deacon or something.

For most good, Bible believin' Baptists, this is all well and good if you weight train and can do this for over 5 minutes. Pretty soon, I'm thinking more about - am i gonna die-- than i am about God. I prefer "freestyle pentecostal individual hand raising" above this - "that 70's Church version"
