Do some churches willfully ignore their mission to fill seats?
A few days ago, I wrote a prayer.
My suggestion that hate is addictive does not mean we cannot oppose the ideas of those who mislead us.
Clearly, there are areas in which the Christian can focus negative energies battling the subversion of our cultural norms. The further away we get from traditional family and positive standards of behavior, the easier it becomes to allow others to become our life surrogate. Government easily fills the vacuum left with an absence of the standard core of mother and father.
We know how well that works.
But where is the Christian at risk? We attend our churches, express our faith in Christ, and depending on which congregation it is, may find ourselves listening to nonsense. The pastors and church leaders too often overlook or misrepresent the teachings of Christ so as not to offend those who fill the seats for each service.
Many speak to the desired message instead of that which is clearly laid out in the bible, often offering excuse for what is clearly sin and an offense to God. Why? Because we are to love. The implication that we be permissive and forgiving of acts that are biblically abominable.
A friend puts it this way: “The Heart is the door in which the devil steals our souls.”
On April 27, 2019 the MICPAC hosted several pastors and conservative thought leaders as part of it’s event. Pastor Christopher Thoma speaks to this topic. With conviction.
