Go ye therefore colonizing all nations making them to be just like you.
is it about the church that it can’t preach the gospel without tying on all of
its own trappings? It says it is presenting truth but in reality it is giving its
application of the truth. There are missions that recruit girls to come and
teach new national believers how to sew a cape dress and Mennonite covering.
Whatever happened to the Holy Spirit? Can we not simply teach of a chaste
spirit and modest heart? The church of today spends 80% of its time teaching
the youth how to dress, what music to listen to and how to conduct themselves
and the other 20% on salvation and the heart of God for mankind. The church
sees today’s youth slipping away and so what do they do? They tighten the
reins, they start pounding the standards harder. And completely miss the core
of Christianity. Why do young people need to go to Bible school or instruction
class to learn about justification and Christ’s call to the lost? Are not these
to be taught from a little child up? The young people of today are being
cheated out of real Christianity. Colonized into a culture or denomination
rather than being set on fire with a passion for Christ. Church standards,
catechisms and statements of faith are DEAD they do nothing for a lost soul.
Only the living word of God can restore a broken life, grant freedom from sin
and instill a passionate purpose for life. Jesus gave us three commands; Love
God, Love others and teach HIS word. People talk about Buddhism and Hinduism
but what about Mennonitism, Brethernism or German Baptistism? Where do you find
your identity? Do you find it in your pious religious system? Or do you find it
in the words of Jesus Christ?
