I have been seeing articles appear on NewsWithViews.com like Blind Guides by Daubenmire and State-Owned Churches Are Killing America by Chuck Baldwin or earlier indictments of the Church like Today’s ‘Chistianty’ by Paul Proctor. These articles used words like milquetoast, sissified “yes” men and Feelianity.
Has the church become superfluous and impotent or is the church even the Church at all? We know that the Church was established by Jesus Christ for His purposes. All churches would like to think that they are fulfilling that purpose. But are they?
The Pharisees thought they were fulfilling the purposes of God according to Moses but we know that Jesus complained that Pharisees were actually hypocrites, outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of iniquity, doing bad things and making the word of God to none effect.
In truth they had turned Israel away from God while they still thought they were the children of God. Could we be deceived like the Pharisees were? History does repeat itself and evil is very clever about creeping in with “damnable heresies”. Could we be under a strong delusion that we are following Christ when in fact we are doing contrary to what He taught us to do?
