We have had a serious problem in the churches and most are blind to it .
They have been filling us full with distractions and experiences and so forth to keep us united and bring more unity in amongst all .
Probably wondering , what on earth I am talking about .
This tatic works . Its not only in many churches , buts its increasing on many sites too .
Instead of putting the focus on sound doctrine , and building up the church , and focusing on watching and being ready .
The mindset is now lets get along .
So it was no surprise that churches and lots of sites too , started focusing more on wordly threads and things we can find common ground on .
See, we can all get along and find common ground in common things .
And folks do this and they become friends , they form relationships and etc .
YET in order to keep this , SOUND doctrine , anything grave , any warnings , any reminders of not sinning or naming what sins are . HAS to be omitted .
Because that causes divisions .
They often use the word or excuse oh we don't need to focus so much on those things , cause all they do is cause divisions and we supposed to have unity .
I just wonder , though , what was the early churches focus . What was their focus in those letters .
Yet , this generation sees a lot of that stuff as negative , we don t want to run folks off stuff .
This does work , if you want unity and fellowship this is one way to get it . BUT at what cost . The cost of the church is the cost .
Its easy to find common ground if our common ground is not truth centered . BUT ITS all a dead end .
THis came really strong to me this evening .
I notice on another site and other sites too , that most posts are on some of the most boring worldy stuff , YET those posts , threads , GET the most traffic .
WELL , OSAS threads get the most . But these follow a very close second .
What I also notice is , the threads that remind us of what days we in and the threads that exhort ONLY SOUND DOCTRINE warnings and exhortations . NO ONE hardly wants to even visit those .
YET , threads that focus on ALL JESUS sayings and reminders of being holy , and focus on BIBLE DOCTRINE , THOSE are the only threads that truly fulfill me .
WE got a problem . WHY is the biblical doctrine not enough to sustain us . I speak in general terms when I say us .
We would think Lambs would love all truth . would want to do threads or go to threads that packed full of biblical reminders . BUT MOST DONT .
Instead the focus is on lets get along , but by doing this , correction is not getting done , those in error ARE NOT being convicted and the churches just keep getting worse .
WHY Does the fact we are near the end times , bother folks .
WHY is it naysaying when correction is being done .
WHY is it doom and gloom when the warnings are be prepared , we will soon be persecuted .
OR why is there little to no mention of HOW close we truly are .
WHY are folks not rather , saying things like , BE WATCHING , BE READY , If any errs correct fast
and why is bible doctrine and the sayings of JESUS so not wanting to be heard .
LAMBS Love EVERYTHING JESUS said .
We have to increase the true biblical exhortations and really and truly build the people up , ensuring with all warnings , reminders , and the HOPE we have in CHRIST Too .
WHEN did beholding BOTH the goodness and severity of GOD , become a crime .
And now anyone who tries to warn and exhort any kind of severity of GOD is seen as a legalist earning their way to heaven .
WE gotta screech the brakes and fast . EITHER we exhort like JESUS DID and the apostels did , IN ALL THINGS , or folks wont make it .
