It is much easier to do something than to trust in God; we see the activity and mistake panic for inspiration. That is why we see so few fellow workers with God, yet so many people working for God. We would much rather work for God than believe in Him – Quoted in My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers dated 2 June.
Recently, I was on the phone to my parents and ended up listening to their Church woes. It sounded all too familiar. I have friends and family all over the world and we spend most of our time discussing church issues. They all belong to different denominations but their complaints are the same. No solid teaching, too many activities, elderly are overlooked and church politics to name a few.
As I was thinking about these things, I concluded that the global church is in a state of panic. Decline in church numbers has caused the church to go into a state of panic. Now that they are panicking they are sadly willing to do and try anything. They have introduced the world into the church hoping that the heathen will start coming. The churches only request is that do anything you want in the church but just don’t leave us!
If that is not a sign of panic, then I don’t know what is…..
I am sad but also annoyed that the Church has all the answers to its problems but tragically they are oblivious to it!!!!!
All the Church has to do is Sunday by Sunday preach the gospel faithfully. Sadly that is the one thing that the Church refuses to do. God help us!
