Thank you for hanging in there with me as this blog continues getting off the ground. I am first giving honor to God to what he continues doing in our lives and the promise of his soon appearance. Though I had a mixture of thoughts this week, one question came to my mind. Why aren’t more churches including Pauls’ Gospel on their websites and discussing it in church? The answer is unknown. My spiritual answer is Satan does not want people to know about the Gospel. The more people saved, the less he gets.
Paul’s Gospel is so important. I know there is not one perfect church on the planet. We are all sinners. The only difference is some are saved grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). At the same time, others have head knowledge but not heart knowledge. I am not looking for a perfect church; I am looking for a church that knows the Gospel, proclaims it, and stands by what they believe.
I surveyed 15 churches online in my area including the one I am currently attending. Of the 15 churches- 9 did not have any scripture listed-purpose or beliefs. Two of those previously posting their beliefs no longer listed them on their sites. Three church sites listed an abundance of verses but did not include Paul’s Gospel. One mentioned Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection but not a scriptural reference. Only one church listed 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. I am not looking for a perfect church; I am looking for a church that knows the Gospel, proclaims it, and stands by what they believe.
Yes, I am very picky when examining church beliefs. I do not want religion. I want to know I am in a place that does not pick and choose verses to suit them. Instead, they understand their mission is to help everyone who wants to be saved and back it up using scripture. My friends, our time is very, very short. We are looking for the rapture of the church at any moment. It is no longer business as usual. If you have relatives who are not saved, please speak with them. This Earth will be horrific. It is easier to believe now than go through tribulation later. It is very comforting to see we are approaching the return of Christ.
