MAYBE ITS TIME FOR THE CHURCHES TO ALLOW MEMBERS OF THE CONGREGATION TO REQUEST THE SERMON TOPICS INSTEAD OF THE CUSTOMARY PASTOR CHOOSING HIS/HER OWN.

EXCERPT (c) CHURCHES IN THIS TIME OF CHANGE

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION WHEN YOU ARE BEING ATTACKED.

ADAPTATION SPEAKS SURVIVAL.

THE CHURCHES HAVE BEEN SLOW TO ADAPT TO ADDRESS THE CHANGING VIEWS OF THE PREVAILING SOCIETY.

ON MANY SOCIAL ISSUES THEY HAVE REMAINED SILENT.

IF THE BODY OF THE CHURCH IS ITS PEOPLE, AND IF IT IS TO REPRESENT THE BODY OF CHRIST, THEN AS CHRIST HAS ENDURED AND SUFFERED DURING HIS TIME AMONG MEN, THEN THE CHURCH SHOULD SO REFLECT HIS TEACHINGS AND HIS SUFFERINGS.

TODAY WE SEE CHURCHES STRUGGLING TO KEEP THEIR CONGREGATION ENGAGED IN WHAT THE PREACHERS ARE SAYING.

THE PREACHERS SEEMS TO HAVE MUCH DIFFICULTY MAKING ANY SENSE AND FAIL TO APPLY THE SCRIPTURES AND TEACHINGS TO EVERYDAY LIFE.

IT HAS NOW BECOME COMMON FOR TELEVANGELISTS TO BEG FOR MONEY WHILE AT THE SAME TIME TRYING TO PREACH THE WORD OF GOD TO PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

THESE ARE NOT HAPPY TIMES FOR MOST OF THE WORLD, AND MOST PLACES OF WORSHIP HAVE BEEN TURNED INTO PLACES FOR MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS TO SAY THINGS TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL GOOD.

HOW MANY PREACHERS TODAY HAVE YOU SEEN PREACHING POLITICS?

HOW MANY HAVE YOU SEEN PREACHING HATE?

MAYBE IF THE MEMBERS OF THE CONGREGATION COULD BE THE ONES WHO REQUEST THE TOPICS OF SERMONS ON WHICH THE MINISTERS SHOULD PREACH, IT MAY MAKE THINGS MORE RELEVANT TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SOCIETY AS RELATED TO SCRIPTURES.

FOR SCRIPTURES TO HAVE ANY RELEVANCE TO THE PEOPLE, THEN THE PEOPLE MUST SEE HOW IT AFFECTS THEIR LIVES.

IT IS BECAUSE CHURCHES HAVE FAILED OVER THE YEARS TO DO THIS SIMPLE TRUTH, WHICH MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO PREACH THE SERMONS OF DEMONS TO STEP IN AND TAKE CONTROL.

THE CHURCHES HAVE FAILED TO  BE ESTABLISHED IN THE PRESENT TRUTH. THEY HAVE FAILED TO TEACH DIVINE TRUTH AS IT APPLIES TO THE HUMAN CONDITION AND APPEALS TO THE HEART OF EVERY MAN.

I AND I RAS CARDO KNOWS THIS: NO COMPARISONS MUST BE MADE AS TO GOD. THE SECURITY OF GOD’S PROTECTION IS SUPREME.

IN GOD’S MERCY HE WILL ALWAYS DELIVER YOU FROM YOUR ENEMIES

YOU CANNOT BE LUKE WARM WITH GOD..
