The State of the Church
A video I found online. Pretty much staes where a lot of the american church is at.And then we wonder why people go on to emergent churches, Roman Catholic churches, or Easter Orthodox Churches. I worry that this is what people are seeing in their churches and indeed it reflects a current attitude on our culture. We want things to be easy. We want it now. We don't want to spend time in the word, preparing to get a message from God. We need to change the trend. We must seek to be educated (hello books!) but we must strive to be close to God enough to be able to minister from what he's teaching us and doing in us. Any idiot can copy and paste a message and download some songs, it takes greated energy to actually spend time listening to what the Spirit says. On another note here is a message from Paul Washer that I think will speak for itself.
