When did the church become about motivating people, like your average thousand dollar corporate dinner speaker?
When did it stop being about challenging the very soul of people?
When did it become about the tweetable catch phrase rather then the biblical truth?
Why isn’t the church offering the one thing people can’t get anywhere else?
Does the church even remember what that even is? Or have they gotten so carried away with the latest album recording, the new TV studio, the highest attendance ratio…
Isn’t it supposed to be about Jesus? Isn’t it supposed to be about how He saved our souls? Isn’t it supposed to be about how He is the one that can heal us?
Sure we have to do our own share of stepping in the right direction.
And yet, without Him it is all for nothing.
The bible says: “I [being Jesus] am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
If that’s the case, GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY.
Stop telling us we can be better, but buy my seven part series on being richer in the brain pan.
Stop telling us we can be healed, but only when we sit in the third seat two rows behind the blind guy’s accountant.
There is no formula. There is no system. There is only Jesus.
Start teaching that again for the love of God.
(maybe then the seats will start to fill themselves)
