FOOD FOR THOUGHT

My dear brothers and sisters, led by “covetous” preachers full of “zeal without knowledge,” (II Peter 2:1-3; Romans 10:1-3; Matthew 23:13-15), the churches of the United States have been courting and catering to the world for well over fifty years.  They use famous personalities, dramas and performances, pizza parties and sports, and numerous gimmicks and tricks to attract and entice natural, unregenerate men and women into the churches.  And, their innovations and efforts have been very successful.  Presently the United States is filled with churches and those churches, for the most part, are filled with the world!  Contrary to the words of our Lord Jesus Christ concerning His people, they are both in the world and of the world (John 17:17).  They have a “form of godliness” (II Timothy 3:5) but are yet strangers to the regenerating and sanctifying power of the Spirit and grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-10; II Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:11-14).  They “have a name to live but are dead” (Revelation 3:1). Brothers and sisters, we must not be moved away from the simplicity of the gospel by these fleshly, worldly innovations and attractions.  There is absolutely nothing, not one thing, about spiritual truth and true worship which is attractive to the natural man! (I Corinthians 2:14; Romans 8:5-9; Galatians 5:17).  We must believe our God, “plant and water,” and wait upon Him to “give the increase” (I Corinthians 3:5-8; 1:18-31).

     In the same context, I urge you to take the following words of wisdom to heart. Pastor Scott Richardson says, “One reason why the church of Christ at this present moment has so little influence over the world is because the world has so much influence over the church.  Your duty as a Christian is to stand fast in your place and stand out for God, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh, resolving like one of another time, “Let others do as they will; as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

     “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,

      Just to take Him at His Word,

      Just to rest upon His promise,

      Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord.”
