In the book of Matthew 24:14, Jesu says, “And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations and then the end will come.” For the last 20 years the church has exploded in ways that the saints of old would never have imagine. Church can now to be found in your pocket, via your smart phones. How cool is that? There are now whole networks that shows nothing but church around the world all day everyday.
So with the explosion of Churchism, why has the end not yet come? Could it be that we are spending a lot of time and money sitting in pews, getting our ears tickled, while listening to someone who is teaching us everything but the gospel. If we can go to church every Sunday and never feel convicted, are we really being taught the gospel truth? I have been going to church all my life, and for the last 10 years, I have been witnessing an alarming trend of preachers and teachers, who teach about fruit to people who have no roots. We all want the gifts of the spirit, but we don’t want the suffering that comes first. The word of God is supposed to be sharper than a two edge sword. So if you are sitting listening to someone talk for hours every Sunday, and you are still comfortable in your mess, what are you being taught? I can assure you, you are not hearing the word of God. We will never be without sin, but there should be evidence of growth. There should be something that you use to do that you no longer do!
