The Church is Going Down.
Christianity in America is going down:
All Protestant churches, even the Southern Baptist Convention, are shrinking
Congress is getting serious about investigating fraudulent preachers with deep collection baskets.
Christian Broadcasting has become so dependent on “teaching ministries” that few stations show any depth or integrity in their message.
The present regime is committed to a “pluralism” that welcomes all “faiths” but excludes Christianity at every turn.
The arrest and torture of Christians overseas is of no concern to the US State Dept.
The most sacred “right” in America is no longer the right to worship God, but to abort children.
The Church can no longer expect the slightest support or protection of any kind from the Government,
The Government can no longer expect the slightest support or protection from God.
What does this mean?
1.The money base behind the spread of the shallow, warped, and altogether pagan message which has been set forth as Christianity is shrinking.
2.The Government support (tax-free status, etc.) is apt to shrink or disappear.
3.The volume of the pseudo-faith message is likely to diminish.
4.This means a larger percent of Christian proclamation will come from people who have a real experience from which to speak, with God's glory and the hearer's salvation in view rather than the preacher's glory and the hearer's silver.
5.With Christianity less “cool” the message is likely to return from the present, living-room niceties to a re-examination of the real content of the real Gospel.
The Church is going down. Down where we belong. On our knees, where our strength was, all along.
