Looking at some of the churches today, it is an embarrassment how money and power have become the dominating factors. If a minister has a gift or some “miraculous” power, our foolish and gullible brethren are willing to believe any rubbish that is preached.
The Bible has been turned into a sort of board game. Games like Bingo, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the Weakest Link, and Monopoly are familiar to the current themes of what church life has become. If the Bible is no longer our absolute authority for life and direction, then let us simply follow every available trend.
True Christians need to strip the idols from what should be a Christ-centred Christianity. I believe that much incorrect understanding and thinking about God is due to poor teaching, this then leads to “pastors farting on their congregations”. We need to bring people back to the fundamental truths—out of the serious misrepresentation of Christianity—in order to introduce them to true Christianity and not showmanship.
We are God’s ambassadors and we should represent the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, truly and faithfully. Failure in doing so means preaching another gospel. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:9)
