I’m not referring to all churches collectively in this article, but to the large majority who have drifted away from God. The present condition of the church leaves one to wonder if the lack of the fear of the Lord is contributing to her spiritually dead condition.
With rapid fire changes within a culture saturated by political correctness and relativism, we are inclined to ask if there is any hope for America. If we continue down this slippery slope, there is little hope. Apart from a national spiritual awakening, it will be difficult to turn the Titanic around — the vessel has been struck; what’s inside is spilling out. But if God brings revival … if we once again set our hearts and minds on Him … there is tremendous hope.
In churches across America, crowd appeal and pleasing the masses tends to be the goal rather than calling out destructive lifestyles, which can result in revival and renewal.
He has 4 very good points in it and we do not find any fault with his reasoning. We will not add any comments as we know he said it well
#2. We Like This Article 2— http://www.christianpost.com/news/the-nba-is-the-national-bullying-association-166883/
Ironically (and hypocritically), LGBT leaders, who frequently share poignant stories of the bullying they have experienced, are now cheering on the bullying of the NBA. The bullied have become the bullies.
But the story doesn’t end here.
To underscore its hypocrisy, the NBA announced that it has relocated the 2017 All Star game to New Orleans, a city that has the same ordinances as Charlotte, allowing “for ‘separate bathroom, restroom, shower or similar facilities for males and females’ in its local ordinance.”
Another well written article that makes a very good and clear point. We will not be adding any comments here either but encourage you to read both of these works.
#3. Social Issues Are Just As Important As Other Problems— http://www.christianpost.com/news/gay-paypal-co-founder-peter-thiel-rnc-gop-convention-fake-culture-wars-are-distracting-america-166832/
“That is a staggering decline for the country that completed the Manhattan Project. We don’t accept such incompetence in Silicon Valley, and we must not accept it from our government,” Thiel asserted. “Instead of going to Mars, we have invaded the Middle East. We don’t need to see Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails: her incompetence is in plain sight. She pushed for a war in Libya, and today it’s a training ground for ISIS. On this most important issue, Donald Trump is right. It’s time to end the era of stupid wars and rebuild our country.”
Thiel shifted to a more contentious note when he said that too much emphasis is being put on social issues rather than focusing on issues he considers more important, like the economy or national security.
“When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union. And we won. Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom,” he said. “This is a distraction from our real problems. Who cares?”
To answer the last question in that quote: Those of us who know that removing the practice of sin and evil from a nation helps make that nation great.
This is one of the problems in America today (as well as other countries) Those who desire and practice sin want to have people’s attention taken off their sinful behavior and placed somewhere else in order for them to feel good about themselves, to delude themselves and to say that there is nothing wrong.God has taught us to do away with sin, not allow it to continue if we want to have a healthy nation, a healthy church and a healthy life.
Morality matters when pursuing those bigger issues. If we do not stop sin in the bathrooms how can we stop the sin in economics and national security. ignoring bathroom sins is hypocritical and corrupts everything else we attempt to fix making it impossible to fix anything.
#4. Pushing The Same-Sex Relationship Too Far— http://www.christianpost.com/news/kids-channel-nickelodeon-debuts-married-gay-couple-cartoon-series-the-loud-house-166765/
The children’s television network Nickelodeon plans to introduce a biracial, same-sex couple into one of its newest cartoon shows.
According to the entertainment news outlet Variety, Nickelodeon is on the midst of introducing the network’s first-ever married same-sex couple in the cartoon series “The Loud House,” which premiered this May.
This is just wrong. Christians do need to speak up about this and say how wrong it is. Christians need to teach about sin and right and wrong again and most likely bring back the fire and brimstone preaching that used to warn people about supporting sin and calling evil good.
#5. We Just Wonder What Masculinity They Are Teaching— http://www.christianpost.com/news/the-liberation-project-podcast-redefines-masculinity-manhood-for-fatherless-generation-interview-166652/
Best friends Blair Reynolds and Justin Stumvoll, hosts of the “The Liberation Project” podcast, started their program after observing what they describe as an absence of masculinity among men in the Church.
“I was absolutely grieved,” Reynolds said in an interview with The Christian Post. “When I became a Christian I was saddened by the lack of masculinity in the Church. It baffled me how passionless and passive so many men were.”
We hope their calling is of God but we are not sure exactly what they are teaching here.Are they teaching men to pray like God wants? We do not see that mentioned in the article. re they teaching men to be biblically correct and leading the right life that is holy and obedient to God? Again we do not see tht mentioned in the article.
We have come to hate the word ’empower’ as it is not a biblical teaching and it is a term like ‘viral’ , a word over-used and has lost its meaning and impact.
When God gave us vision for this,” Stumvoll recounts, “we sensed Him saying: ‘Go apprehend the hearts of my sons that would never set foot inside the four walls of a church because my sons aren’t refined enough for those four walls and I want you to meet them where they are.'”
We wonder about this ‘message’ from God and would need more details about it before commenting on it.
As they journeyed together they discovered that there is so much more to being a Christian man than the list of niceties religious norms require them to exhibit.
This makes us wonder if they are pursuing their own ideas or God’s about men and the church. The rest of the article has us wondering a lot about their ‘ministry.’
