BAD CHURCHES AND THE NEED TO LEAVE THEM
We have a history of going to Church as a regular routine for hundred of years. We look to Sunday as though it was one of the major holidays where we go out and buy beautiful clothes and funny brim hats with face nets. Not for men but for women. Men buy the dress suites and ties along with shinny shoes and satin socks.
Children are told to wash behind their ears, put on clean under ware and dress in freshly bought or best garments to make the parents look good before other women that’s out to judge them.
Yes, going to Church has become a holiday in it’s own rights where millions gather at small buildings as well as great large ones to carry out traditional methods rehearsed over and over again to perfection.
Such rehearsals have been rehearsed so long in Church gatherings that the heart of Christianity has never taken time to learn the real meaning of what all this stuff about God, Jesus and the Resurrection is all about. Many doesn’t know the plan of salvation.
Fun and excitement has long replaced righteousness for seeing who can sing the best in choirs or even having the best choir, the best groups and who can afford to give the highest amount of money or who give the lest.
Righteousness has also been replaced by different types of programs created to entice many toward shows, seminars, conventions, designed breakfast, impossible prayer meeting, achievement awards, clown faced voo doo idiots, Satan designed so-called Holy Spirit dancers and dedications for the proud.
The Church has become a place of power where one can gain positions not achieved on regular jobs to become teachers, stewards of think tanks. Head mothers and deacons to be looked upon as authority figures, ushers head cooks, lay minister and of course the throne bearers themselves in charge of this falling crowd, the pastors, all seeking to be somebody.
All using the beautiful inside and outside of Church buildings, they pretend to worship as a mean to meet, greet and party but never learning to truly teach the understanding and life of righteousness God intended for us but instead hold weekly traditional home away from home Sunday holiday services that tickle the ears. “Didn’t we have a good time” or “you should’ve heard this or that preacher preach at such and such church.”
If you think about it, the phrase, “going to Church” should be accompanied immediately by the phrase, “to worship God.” For Just going to Church does not carry the will to belong to God nor that you want to pursue the will of God through Jesus Christ.
To worship God will give the mind a thought, a desire, a conviction and a possible chance to learn of God for themselves and for others, things that can be used away from the building to put to use in our daily lives and in the lives of others.
Listen! When one say they are “going to college” or “lower institution,” they follow up by saying to study math, English, science, computer design and so one. From this the mind focus on learning and finishing the course or courses and leave the college to past what they’ve learned on to others.
College, the institution, the building is that which we want to get away from because we have learned enough to leave the college never to return again, at least not for the same thing, to Past what we learned on to others.
Not so for those attending Christian buildings of learning or study. They have a desire to return again and again hearing the same things over and over never intending to leave the Church building because of the fun, excitement glammer and joy that come from being in a crowd. In other words, “flunkies.”
These will never fit the criteria of leaders God is looking for. They have no talent. Bad blood.
There is a disadvantage to going to Church rather than becoming the Church. Such is the case to what we see today. People hovering around Church buildings listening to half truths so long until they are just Church goers.
People are under the influence that they need to attend some kind of Church building to keep a relationship with God. They keep going back, it seem, looking for something new after stating you or they are Christians. Are you?
As a Christian you now know what is expected of you as a child of God. That you know right from wrong. That you know the word of God. That you know just as much as your pastor about your salvation. That you are qualified to teach. All Christians must be qualified to teach, have understanding, be leaders and have the love to share with all races without hate.
If you do not have these abilities you are not a Christian. You have no right to go out onto the highways and tell others nothings. You are just a seat warmer. Some one that just want to get out of the house for a little while.
Highways mean away from where you started, spreading the gospel to all you meet that have no knowledge of God or using God’s name in vain in their pretending Christian lives because their pastor never taught them the right way. Never too late to retrain.
Some will say they need a pastor, a shepherd. This is true, but not for the rest of your life. They are there just like college teachers or any other type teacher and that’s to teach you and help you graduate away from the building into your new life of walking with Jesus on your own. Meeting and greeting fellow Christians your meet along the way and share the good news as you fellowship.
Now, here are some facts why going to a Church building every Sunday will not get you into Heaven. You must become the following.
Acts 7:48 (KJV)
Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
This is plain enough. God is saying he do not live in a Church Building that man built for himself. So, if a pastor tell you that God is in this house as floating around don’t believe him.
1 Corinthians 6:19 (KJV)
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
You, when you have the Holy Ghost or the Spirit of God or the Word of God in you then you become your own type of building or temple housing the word of God. Going to a building to listen to someone tell you what you should no and have is basically considering yourself lost.
2 Timothy 3:7 (KJV)
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Why? Because you never did come to the understanding of the truth. You don’t know God as you say you do. You still need to be taught while lusting for the truth you refuse to find. So a need to be ministered to is always before you. Looking into this Church and that one. Going this place and another.
2 Corinthians 5:1 (KJV)
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
Our earthly house is our bodies with the word of God working in us. When we die our building, our soul, our spirit not made by hand will be one day with God.
If we look and look hard it is not hard to see that with thousands of Churches in the United States along with a new Church rising with every drop of a hat and on every corner, we should be better people in our nation with Churches taken the lead instead of being behind but we are not.
Why? Because Church people rather party and be like the world rather than becoming the temple of God that is a fortitude of strength and courage. Instead, it is a crumbling building of fleshly souls fading with time. It will get worse. But help is still here. All you have to do is open your eyes.
Will you become the few that become your own temple or do you still need to be taught? Nothing from nothing leave nothing. Think about it!
