THE IMPOTENT AMERICAN CHURCH
By Coach Dave Daubenmire

Impotent— lacking in power, strength, or vigor: Helpless.
Jesus used even harsher words than me. He said that when Christianity loses its saltiness we become “good for nothing.”
I think we have reached that point. How in the world did the “Body of Christ” become so limb-wristed and weak?
I am a proud Christian man. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is the “power” of God unto salvation. But for the most part, the “Church” has been rendered powerless, “good for nothing except to be trodden under the foot of man” because we are ashamed to proclaim the Truth. The Gospel is powerless if we are ashamed of it.
Instead of a stallion, the sissified-pulpit has produced a gelding. They are hiding under a bushel. Oh, they are not ashamed of it inside the safety of their stained-glassed monarchies, but they are ashamed of it out where the Devil roams. They love preaching to the choir about the “power of God” but they are unable to ejaculate (eject from a living body) any power on their own.
