When you really look at it, the church has become a “business operation”. We have all of these conferences, where you have to pay all of this money to attend. You hear more about wealth, than you hear about trying to build a Christian spirit…
It makes me sad to think of so-called leaders in the black community talking about repositioning yourself, empowerment this and empowerment that and folks is dying spiritually and physically. How about we empower ourselves to preach the gospel! Instead of another seminar on how to have a successful business, how about we have a seminar on how to get saved!
I was looking at Jeremiah 23 this morning: ”But if they [these false prophets] had stood in My council, then they would have announced My words [not their words] to My people, and would have turned them back from their evil way and from the evil of their deeds.” Jer. 23:22 That’s interesting, because it seems as if history had already begun to repeat itself!
All over the world today, there is a vast renewal of interest in studying the Bible.
Thousands of people are reading the Bible to find the answers as to where they
come from, why they are here on earth, and where they are going after this life is
over. Searching the Scriptures with an open and honest heart toward God will
enable you to gain knowledge of God’s total plan for all of His people
