Preach it!

A GREAT DECEPTION takes place at many churches. It’s a bait-and-switch tactic. On the outside they advertise themselves as a hospital. But when people get inside they discover it is actually a courthouse.

REFORMED? We need a new reformation; one in which the pure, simple, and unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ will retake Bible-believing churches.

MISSIONARIES. Do our missionaries travel overseas to win a single convert, and make them twice the child of hell that we are? (See Matthew 23:15).

EVANGELISM. I think we are nearing an end, of what church historians will, in the future, call the Billy Graham era of evangelism.

CHRISTIAN FUNDEMENTALISM. People are sick of the self righteous who believe they are more spiritual than everyone else in the Body of Christ.

BUT “I’M RIGHT and THEY ARE NOT.” Really? Are you sure? How do you know that your slant on the Bible is the right way? You might have a belief system that will betray you (its victim) in the end. Then it’s too late.

THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT. Please don’t mix your politics with Christianity. It corrupts the gospel.

KNOWLEDGE PUFFS UP, BUT LOVE BUILDS UP (I Corinthians 8:1). Which group is more loving? More gracious? More thoughtful? More supportive? More joyful? More peaceful? You decide.

GOD DOES IT DIFFERENT. I’m glad that God forgives me, saves me, redeems me, fills me, and loves me. I thankful that He doesn’t treat me the way most some Christians do.

MORE INSIGHTFUL. Could it be that those people who do not attend your church have more insight than you do? Maybe they know what’s wrong in your church while you can’t see it. Maybe they should be reaching you instead? Just a thought.
