It totally amazes me what Christian people will fall for. Every wind of doctrine that comes along isn’t necessarily of God or found in the BOOK! Christians today want “name it and claim it” instead of “get up, get a job and get it”. They desire bigger, better and newer material possessions. They think MORE is a sign of God’s favor on their lives. We are always posting STUPID, UNTRUE meme’s on Facebook “share this and God is going to send you __________ in the next week” (you fill in the blank). Even “preachers” (local, tv and otherwise) seek to manipulate the minds of Christians into thinking if you will “sow your seed of faith” into their church or ministry then God is going to multiply it times 7, 10, 20 or whatever the number of the week happens to be. Isn’t it interesting – they NEVER say “Sow your financial seed into your local church, missions, homeless shelters, food for the hungry, etc.”? It’s always give or send THEM your financial seed. THAT KIND OF TEACHING IS NOT OF GOD!
PROSPERITY GOSPEL IS NOT THE TRUE GOSPEL.
Now before you get mad at the above statement — answer one question: Why is it that the American Churches are one of the only groups that preaches such doctrine? The church around the world knows nothing of this foolishness.
Jesus said, “In this life you WILL have tribulation”. He said, we must “take up our cross and follow” Him. He said, the world will hate us for His name sake. YET we keep listening to these gospel charlatans who seek to lead you and your family astray!! You are chasing an almighty dollar when other Christians around the world are giving their lives just to get a copy of God’s Word! You pray for wealth and material things and other christians around the world meet in secret places just to pray together and have worship. You can’t even get out of bed and off your behind to go to worship at a local church for one hour a week or help your local church serve Him and yet other christians are willing to take the chance of being jailed, imprisoned and beaten and even killed for their love for Jesus? How selfish and shallow can we be? How in this world do we think that we are letting our light shine for Him when it’s all about us!!!! We aren’t willing to die for Him but we will be glad to cash a check from Him? WE GOTTA WAKE UP CHURCH! PASTORS – STOP LYING TO YOUR CHURCH! PREACH TRUTH!! PREACH JESUS – HIM CRUCIFIED, BURIED, RISEN and COMING AGAIN! PREACH ABOUT THE BLOOD! PREACH ABOUT JESUS!!! TAKE UP THE CROSS and FOLLOW JESUS! It’s not pretty, it’s not easy, it’s not popular. As a matter of fact – it’s messy! Sometimes it’s hard on your heart. Sometimes it makes you cry. Sometimes it causes your body to get tired. Sometimes it cost you time, money and sleep. BUT FOR JESUS and HIS KINGDOM it’s worth it all!!!! IS JESUS WORTH IT? YES!!!!
