Top 10 Things That Are Killing The Church!

Pastor Randy of “Kingdom Pastor” has an excellent series going, 10 thoughtful posts on what is killing our Savior’s church in America. I have read items 10 – 7 and look forward to taking the time this weekend to finish reading the rest of his series. If you care about the state of the Christian Church in our nation, you may wish to do the same.

Note that we, including Pastor Randy I suspect, tend to think of the Christian Church as a phenomenon of the West, that is, the Americas and Europe. In truth the Christ’s Church is declining in the United States and Western Europe, but that’s is not the case elsewhere. That’s why I say Pastor Randy’s series is about the Christian Church in America. It’s the church we know, and it is that part of the church our Savior gave to us to fulfill His Great Commission.

This morning I had another one of my moments of random thoughts.  It is a condition I am afflicted with regularly and I am learning to use it in ways that would be both inspiring and challenging.  This morning’s random thought came out of a conversation I had in 2016 with someone at church.  Our conversation emerged from that Sunday’s message that was about the question of human sexuality.  If you are a member of or are following the news in our Tribe, it is a hot topic button.  My point was that God calls us to love and care about others and that homosexuality is not the worst sin, and we needed to stop treating it that way.  We need to bear witness to the truth of Jesus through our lives and give the Spirit the opportunity to change whatever needs to be changed in our life.

    1. Good choice!

      I am afraid silence, even quiet appreciation, is a feat is beyond me. Eventually, I have to say something.
      😆

      I just hope that when I am in the presence of our Savior I will know when to shut up. Sigh! But Peter did not so I probably won’t either. Yet if our Lord could forgive and reform Peter, perhaps He will consider me worth the bother too.

      1. LOL! Like lawyers sometimes say, “it seems you have the right to remain silent but not the ability to actually avail yourself of it.”

        Completely unrelated to Pastor Randy’s excellent series, of course. 🙂

  1. I must confess that I cringe with instinctual disgust in those many and almost daily encounters with our gay brethren.

    But I think this is not homophobia but what the Hopi Indians call, “Koyaanisqatsi,” or a reaction to life out of balance.

    The Christian, nevertheless, is bound to act not according to his passions (appetites, visceral reactions, etc.) but according to the divine command to love his neighbor.

    Therefore, I continually pray that Jesus hang this failing of mine on the Cross, with him.
