Anyway, so I’m sitting here, researching, ALL DAY and I can’t get past thinking about how twisted this world is. It’s so prominent that I can’t think of anything to post. That can’t be good.
I came across an article that should make you mad, if you’re a minister of any kind. “America has become a morally bankrupt society”….”Pastors, if you wonder who is to blame for America’s slide from the ‘Ozzie and Harriet’ morality of yesteryear to the ‘Brokeback Mountain’ immorality of today, look in the mirror,” says Pastor Paul Blair of Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Okla.
You know what…he’s right.
The Church has become lax in just about everything that IS the foundation of Christianity. In fact it’s been proven that since school prayer in public schools was outlawed, promiscuity went UP. And ever since, there has been a dramatic uprising of pre-marital sex with teens in the last 40 years. God was taken out of school and was replaced with drug use, alcohol abuse and depression. Kids are on more prescription medication for depression than ever before. IF GOD IS TAKEN OUT OF THE EQUATION, THERE IS NOTHING.
If that isn’t enough…
With hate crime legislation on the table, preaching against abominations like homosexuality and crimes against nature will be nearly outlawed if the Church doesn’t do anything about it. In the last 50 or so years, more and more of the world has been allowed into the Church along with cults and psychology, to water down the Word of God. So, what ends up happening is the average church-goer isn’t listening to the Gospel anymore, but listening to ‘ideas’ and empathetic reasoning. IF GOD IS TAKEN OUT OF THE EQUATION, THERE IS NOTHING.
The Church of Obama, or the Supreme Court.
Empathy instead of law? No wonder God has taken His hand off this country with this new democratic Supreme Court making their own rules. But with the new administration erasing God from everything, we have a big bunch of nothing but everything the world wants. The True Church is in need of real men and women of God to wipe up the mess and bring back the Truth instead of the wishy-washy bunch of nothing that the Rick Warren’s and Joel Osteen’s of the WORLD are vomiting up as ‘church’. Because, when the Supreme Court gets their hands on the Fairness Doctrine and the Thought Crimes Act, we, as God-ordained preachers and teachers, will be accountable for hate crime law. IF GOD IS TAKEN OUT OF THE EQUATION, THERE IS NOTHING.
Where is the God of Elijah?
‘And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over,’ 2Kings 2:14. In this verse of scripture, it shows that Lord God is there when we ask and need him. What the Church has forgotten is that God wants to do what He has promised if we would only let Him. But no one is asking. And the reason no one is asking is because no one is teaching and preaching that they can! Preachers and Pastors have taken away the God of Elijah from their churches because of self righteous hypocracy that is in His place.
Revelation 3:15, ‘I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth……3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
My suggestion? OPEN THE DOOR.
Nothing will change unless Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers of the Church start preaching Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. NOW.
If God is taken out of the equation, there is nothing.
