Do you think the Church is Powerless?

Started Apr 13, 2012 0 Replies

Do you think the church is powerless?  It seems that the saints are focused on titles and have become complacent with doing almost nothing.  I don't see much evangelism going on and not much…Continue

Many churches today are filled with "felt need" hearers and "how to" motivational messages...centered on the importance of self esteem which has little mention of such things as sin, judgment or the fear of the Lord and consequently, less mention of the need of anything as drastic and archaic as repentance.  In many churches the pastor is looked upon more in terms of a corporate executive whose main concern lies in the realm of marketing and sales!

Here was one particular church's promise in the Dallas /Fort Worth area: "We will give you coffee and dougnuts free."  The Apostle Paul was stoned at Lystra; he was beaten in Philippi: he was martyred in Rome.  Can you see him trying to build a church in Philippi with this promise - We will give you free coffee and doughnuts!?  Offering a brand of Christianity that entertains, that wants to meet the self-gratification needs of a yuppie or hip-hop culture without compelling anyone to bear a cross is foreign to the real New Testament Gospel.

And what is the Gospel?  That Jesus suffered on a Roman cross outside the city walls of Jerusalem.  He who knew no sin bore your sin in His body on the cross.  He died on the Roman cross.  He was buried and three days later He arose from the grave, the living, trumphant Lord and Savior.  That's the message the world needs and it never changes!

  • "We cannot sit by and do nothing while worldly, revisionist, and skeptical attitudes about truth are infiltrating the church!  We must not embrace such confusion in the name of charity, collegiality, or unity.  We have to stand and fight for the truth - and be prepared to die for it - as faithful Christians always have!  Truth is always under assault.  And it is actually a sin not to fight when vital truths are under attack!
  • "The Apostle Jude was compelled by the Holy Spirit to exhort us with all passion "to contend earnestly for the faith which was once and for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3).  Jude was not writing this because he took some kind of perverse glee in being militant!  He was not responding to some sort of momentary, personal anger.  This was critical, and since the writers of Scripture never wrote by human self-will, but only as they were moved by the Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:21), the extreme urgency of Jude reflects the sovereign influence of the Holy Spirit, and therefore also the mind of Christ.
  • "We thus have an urgent mandate from God Himself to do our part in the Truth War.  The Holy Spirit, through the pen of Jude, is urging Christians to exercise caution, discernment, courage, and the will to contend earnestly for the truth.
  • Notice what we are supposed to be fighting for.  It is not anything petty, personal, mundane, or ego related.  This warfare has a very narrow objective.  What we are called to defend is no less than 'the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.'"

Taking God's Word seriously is the obligation of every Christian who should submit his/her preferences to it.  But, sadly, this is not happening enough in the Christain church today.  We must all be mindful of the warning of 2 Timothy 4:3: "For the time will come will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires.

What we need in Christianity are more people who will stand for the truth of God's Word instead of trying to water it down in order to meet the needs and preferences of the politically correct or the unregenerant. 

My name is Minister Arlee Turner Jr. and I hereby make this bold proclamation: I am prepared to suffer and even die for the Gospel of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  God's Ultimate Weapon Ministry calls out to Christian men and women to stand upon the Word whether it is popular or not, whether it is easy or not, and whether it costs them or not.

Thank you so much, Sister Adams, for that inspiring comment! Stay tuned, because it gets worse before it will get better.  The apostasy is bigger than any of us - who are the remnant - could every imagine! May the Lord continue to bless you and to keep you!
