I want you to take a moment and read this article. I have to say that I have never seen nor experienced a time in my life when the church at large seems to be so violent minded and so mean.
We are experiencing a mass exit from most congregations today. We are experiencing a situation where even in the most contemporary churches we are losing members and regular congregants at an alarming rate. I have never seen so many churches FOR SALE.
I have been wondering for some time now why so many people seem to be less and less interested in anything to do with Christians or church. I began to take a long look at the church and the message of some of the churches and now the picture is becoming crystal clear.
In this week’s news was yet another PATHETIC statement from a more well known Christian personality that spewed from his mouth a ridiculous story about Ebola and a potential reason of why this disease is here and growing concerns about it’s existence. Follow the information below to see:
There are many things in life that follow a rule that I have: “It makes sense until you think about it”.
First of all let me voice an opinion and may I add this is only my opinion. If you don’t have anything sensible to say, PLEASE DON’T SAY ANYTHING. Since the days of the PTL club and Jimmy Swaggart, I have told many, many people this: When a minister of the Gospel or a leader in the church falls, he/she doesn’t really hurt themselves on the same level as it hurts the church.
Nothing in the New Testament supports the types of actions that this minister or leader has made. These statements are not only inflammatory but approaching idiotic. Not a good witness of the church and certainly not led by the Holy Spirit.
I have gotten weary of the idea that ministers feel as if they can say anything they want to say. It actually makes me angry to see this happen. Why? you may ask. These people are misrepresenting the message of hope.
Jesus was born the ONLY Son of God and left his heavenly estate to take his place among humanity. Was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. He became the ultimate sacrifice for humanity when he was crucified, while God and His angels watched. He was laid in a borrowed tomb and rose the third day with the keys to Hell, Death, Sin and the Grave. He ascended to the right hand of God the Father and has promised us that one day He will return to gather His children home to be with Him for eternity.
He said that he came not to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. My daily prayer is that we can all learn to communicate to the world the love of Christ and the reason for our Hope. Love others as we would want to be loved.
