There is much confusion in the contemporary sphere on the subject of apostles. This is mainly due to the climate of deep disagreement and resentment over some Christian leaders who are acknowledged by many to be modern-day apostles.
Defending the Faith
True Christians need to strip the idols from what should be Christ-centred Christianity. I believe that much incorrect understanding and thinking about the God of the Bible will result in wrongful worship. 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, which has the power to transform broken lives. I do not claim to be perfect or complete, for God knows that I’m anything but.
The thing our churches are most interested in today is attendance at meetings. Another gospel has replaced the Gospel. It is one that pretends to meet the needs of someone, but in effect, does not meet any of their needs at all. The only thing it accomplishes is the massaging of the audience members’ respective egos.
It is sad to hear people say the Bible is no longer relevant for today’s living. The argument they present is that we live in a secular and scientific age where what was appropriate for John and Paul and the other people in the Bible is no longer applicable. This can be seen in the sociological schemes and church growth conferences that advise churches on how to be relevant. It appears that it is no longer enough just to study the Bible for what is being said; we apparently need a special technique to help us grow, in addition to the Word of God. We have churches today spending thousands on advertising and building their “empire” image, instead of investing in the harvest field.
