Listening to some material on “the R – Rated Church” got me riled up again. This nation’s pastor’s are the main problem, because they are pandering after “seeker friendly charlie” whoever he is . . . and have created a “mixed mulitude”. Let me repeat it all again with emphasis! The “CHURCH” is for “born again” believers. People who have become “children of God” by the new birth. The “church” is the Bride of Christ. It doesn’t NOT include unsaved, lost, unrepentent sinners. Ye (plural – King James Bible’s more percise English) for “you ALL” must be born again.
We don’t “trim” the MESSAGE in order to placate the masses or individuals who might come to our services. We are to preach the “whole counsel” of God to people as they are . . . most of our “preaching” should be done outside of church by our lives and our lips. cp. Acts 5:42; Acts 20:18-38; I Peter 3:15;
Do YOU ever take a STAND for the TRUTH outside of your local church? Does your language, dress, conduct, lifestyle, reflect that you are “Christ-like.” Does your spirit, attitude, the way you “say” things reflect positively or negatively on your “professed Christianity?” cp. Col. 3:16; I Thess. 4:1-5; II Thess. 3:6;
These are the questions we should all ask ourselves every day!
