This is an article aimed towards preachers and church leaders to remind them why they have titles and who they are here for.
There is a cry for salvation in the streets. It many times goes unanswered. While the pastors build bigger facilities, and the church prospers in finances, and the evangelists wait on a church to call before they preach, and the prophets only prophesy to those in the $50 line, and the teachers are quieted by their lack of study, and the apostles are rubbed out by a church who no longer wants them, or while they proclaim to be apostles without the fruit, and while the time hastens toward the judgment of a disobedient people... SOULS are crying out for THE SAVIOR!
Now that very few people are presenting Christ well, lost people turn rather to Allah because most of his people are united, or they turn to Buddha because none of his people are arguing publicly, or they turn to Satan, maybe sin can forever be fun without fear of judgment, or still they may turn to self-worship. They need something or somebody to worship. We were all created that way by our Father. We aren't presenting the Gospel anymore. We are presenting our churches, our pastor, our conferences, the reasons for denominational bigotry, and prosperity.
Women who are beaten every week by the men they love don't care and are not moved by prosperity messages. Children who are afraid to go home could care less about how to make a church appear to grow. Men who have been hurt by every woman they have ever had don't care about the fifty million problems we each can identify in some other denomination. When a person doesn't know why they are attracted to their own sex, or why they were abandoned as a child, or why their children fight them back and call them names, or why they can't kick a drug habit, or if God is able to fix them, or if anyone in the world truly loves them, or when they will get past the rapes, molestation or perversion of their past, all the other stuff means very little.
I am asking the people in churches today to amend their ways. We have to do something different if we are desiring God to be pleased. In the end, it doesn't matter who else was moved or who else was pleased, if God wasn't in your works, then it will perish with fire and your works will have been void. I don't want that for me or for my fellow laborers in the Gospel.
"God bless each one that reads this. Show us how to reach your hurting people. Teach us what we should do and that we will do! Amen!"
