Because it’s the most popular church. Because it’s where my parents went, it’s the closest one to my house. Because the people there are so friendly, because they have great programs for my children, because they’re not pushy there, no one forces Jesus down my throat.
Because they will accept all faiths in that church, no one feels left out, because no matter how anyone lives their lives, everyone is made to feel welcome, they do not judge anyone by their lifestyle, the way they dress, or how they behave in public or private.
Welcome to the apostacy my friends, I’m guessing none of you reading this believed that you would live long enough to actually witness these days, when what were once houses of worship became nothing more than community clubhouses, where a god who would serve us was searched for instead of One we should serve. Where people gather to offer spare change to Him who owns all, where no matter if the life you have chosen to live is in obedience to the will of the Almighty or not, you are welcome, for God is love, Jesus died for all, and no one is judged for anything.
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)
“Not here, not in this church, all are welcome, none are turned away, perhaps they will change, perhaps not, that is not for us to decide or determine, it is not our responsibility or our duty to force anything on anyone.”
The fear of the Lord is gone from many places with a cross in it today, enablement has taken the place of holy service, entitlement is now sitting in the pew where holy reverence once sat, reproving and correcting will be politely asked to leave by the way they came in. Never offend, never judge, always behave in a manner that is loving, do not hate evil for there is no such thing, only misguided souls that no matter the life they decide to live, no matter for how long, they are welcome.
Repentance, turning away from known sins against the Most High in humility, with a broken and contrite heart, would mean a sin has been committed, and there is no such thing as sin, only minor mistakes which should be corrected. But then that would mean that you have judged that person, and this must never be done, best to just go about your business, mind your own walk, and let God deal with them.
God is not mocked, He does not change, and those who sin without repentance will die in those sins, all those who deny the Lord Jesus Christ will suffer eternally in the Lake of Fire, with no hope forever. That is not the message being preached today, that is the message that will cause you to be arrested, sued for all you have, persecuted, tormented and killed, and that is the reason why so many stay in a church where they feel safe, where the sermons do not convict them to serve the Lord Jesus with fear and trembling, but instead offer them a place of safety, a refuge from the storm they are to head directly into.
Are they cowards, are they embarrassed, is it someone else’s responsibility, do they fear to seem rude, offensive, judgmental? Are they saved?
They are the many. “For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matt. 22:14) They are those that fulfill Matthew 15:8, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.” They are deceived by their own free will, and they will not enter into the Kingdom of God.
Now, why do you attend the church that you go to?
