Today’s Christian church is in a severe state of compromise. False prophets and teachers have infiltrated the church, using their status and position to deceive and exploit the hopes of naive believing church members. Under compromised leadership, the focus of attaining salvation for lost and weary souls has shifted to obtaining celebrity status and riches. Promises of blessings are auctioned from the pulpit with the misleading perception that the highest bidders and givers reap the most rewards.
Manipulative, corrupt leaders have led parishioners astray, diverting our worship and service unto God, to serving and worshipping the man or woman who simply talks about God. As a result, complacent Christians forgo the opportunity to study God’s living word for themselves, relying solely on pastors, preachers, and other church leaders for direction. Lay members fall prey to seemingly saintly characters, driven by selfish ambition, rather than godly pursuits.
We have been forewarned in the Bible throughout the Old and New Testaments that there would be false teachers and prophets who would come to deceive the people of God. Yet instead of seeking and arming ourselves with the wisdom and knowledge of God’s written word, we continue to consume man’s spoken word, without questioning, whether it lines up with scripture.
As God’s children, we are responsible for knowing what he said and his purpose for our lives. He implores us to seek him and learn of his promises by building a one on one relationship, directly with him. He desires to speak directly to us as our source and guide and if we listen for his voice, he longs to correct us that we may move out of our current state of compromise.
