And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
John 14: 6
Jesus answered, “I am the truth and the way and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
I sat in the church where my grandparents took me as a child and listened to the visiting pastor (the church’s University representative—a young woman) talk of all gods being equal. My grandparents went home a half century ago. I can only imagine their outrage. That wasn’t the message preached in their day. The small congregation merged with larger churches as each congregation grew. It's now a mainline church that became liberal. The decline of biblical truth in the church increases.
Thankfully, good churches still exist. My pastor teaches the truth. But tolerance rules some churches. Don’t say anything controversial. Someone might leave. Feed them the pap that will keep them there. Don’t talk about hell or sin. Just do cute sermons filled with jokes. I’m not against pastors making jokes, but they shouldn’t be the point. Pastors don’t only entertain. They teach.
All gods are not equal. One true God in three--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—created us, died for us, and lives within those who love Him.
I wanted to weep. As we left the church, the man ahead of me complimented the pastor on her sermon. In his defense, he can’t hear. He wanted to compliment a pretty girl. I walked out of that place, stiff-backed, determined to strengthen my prayer for churches.
Dear Lord, Please hear my prayer for renewal in so-called Christian churches.
