No More Spineless Christianity!

(Jesus said) "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."  (John 14:6) "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Mt 7:13-14)

‘NO MORE SPINELESS CHRISTIANITY’

by J. Lee Brady of Charisma Magazine.

EXCERPTS:

“This temptation to dilute the gospel has produced a new recipe for a trendy sermon. We start with some great motivational speaking (“Your past does not define your future!”), add a few quarts of cheap grace (“Don’t focus on your sin!”), pour in some prosperity gospel (“Run to this altar and grab your financial breakthrough!”), flavor it with some trendy pop psychology (“It’s all about you!”) and voila!—you end up with a goopy mess of pabulum that not even a baby Christian could survive on.”

“We’ve rewritten Paul’s words today. Our rule is, “Preach what the people want to hear! Avoid controversy! Stroke, soothe and pacify the people so they will come back next week!” Is it any wonder that this low-protein spiritual diet has produced an anemic church?”

    • Thanks for your response. I truly believe the scripture that judgment begins in the house of the Lord. If we don’t clean up our act, we cannot be the light of the world and salt of the earth and there will not be revival in the land. People will not come to the Lord when they see our poor Christian witness.
