Religion of Convenience, Part III

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

In many churches and bible colleges today, biblical words are being removed from our vocabulary and understanding of God. Words like repentance, hell, and the wrath of God. The word sin is replaced with words like mistake and error. The call to repent is being replaced with a plea to “receive Jesus.” Men and women of God must rise up and confront this religion of convenience, but we must also let the Word of God confront this mindset in any place it has reign in our own hearts. Are you willing?

Religion of Convenience, Part II

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Out of fear for his own kingdom, king Jeroboam, whose name means, ‘he pleads the cause of the people,’ created a religion of convenience that brought Israel into grave sin. Rather than allowing the people to make the long journey to Jerusalem to offer their sacrifices rightly, he set up golden calves in Bethel and Dan. He also established priests outside of the Levites of anyone who desired to be a priest and even established a “feast” for offerings which the Scripture says he devised from his own heart. (1 Kings 12:25-33)

What “conveniences” might be drawing your heart away from the true ways of God’s kingdom?

In second Timothy, Paul warns of a time that is coming when many in the church will gather to themselves “teachers to suit their own passions” and “turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” This “religion of convenience” is running rampant in much of the Western church today, and its subtleties can ensnare any one of us who are not diligent to seek the Father and the truth in Messiah Jesus.

Jonah, Part IV

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

We must be aware of the eternal gravity of the message we communicate. This is life and death and we cannot speak a compromised message. When the church rises up with a love for the Lord and a love for the city, the Truth is told and hearts are changed.

Are we preaching the Twinkie Gospel or Truth?

“When the people heard this they were cut to the heart…” Acts 2:37
