The Show Must Not Go On

April 1, 2014

Greetings,

Jesus said:

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites!  You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.”  Matthew 23: 15

Jesus did not hesitate to call out and denounce the religious leaders of his time.  Because instead of being beneficial servants and guides they had actually become stumbling blocks to whoever sought to follow the faith they represented. Rather than helping others find and walk in the ways of God they ended up hindering those who followed after them.  

Can we really say that most leadership in the modern “church” today is much different?  Are we really making disciples after Christ today?  It seems to me that most folks are being taught to follow a religious system instead of Jesus today.  The Laws of the false “church” system are…go to “church”, pay your tithe, and follow the Pastor.  None of which are a true and necessary components of serving and following Jesus and His ways. 

The western “church” in particular is in a sad state and its Leaders are not satisfied with the damage they have inflicted here.  No, they even send missionaries to inflict american greed and other damage to the natives of foreign countries.  I have been to Peru and witnessed first hand how “Christian” american’s have tried to bring western churchianity to the masses.  Just like McDonalds they seek to multiply their business and create franchises in other lands.  They preach something other than Jesus and attempt to build on a foundation other than Christ alone.  I have had friends go to Africa and see how sincere native “pastors” are turned into greedy traveling fund raisers instead of remaining true to the real call on their lives.  The American brand of Christianity is a poison to all who swallow their weak and watered down gospel.  

Whenever money becomes a NEED of a church everything else gets tainted.  Everything!  When you come to the point of “needing” to pay a Pastor, build a building, or heat, cool and maintain an edifice..true ministry and servanthood are quickly thrown to the side in most cases.  True disciple making doesn’t have to cost a dime, it costs only your time and devotion to Christ and those who are seeking Him.  

Wisdom cries out….Return to Jesus…your first love!  Throw off all the things that hinder and distract you from hearing His voice.  It is not about the Pastor, the buildings, the programs and the offerings.  It is simply about Christ and Him crucified.  It is time to follow Jesus and expose the hellish “church” system for what it is……When Jesus called the religious Leaders “hypocrites”…He was saying that they were ACTORS and not sincere about their call.  In the “church” today we lift up the actors because we want to be entertained.  Those who act best become Leaders and Pastors because they can appear to give a grand sermon, but is what they are acting out what we really need to hear?  I will say it one more time and then I am done…… Forget the actors and the show, and return to Jesus your first love!

Love and ….

Kirk Out !

  1. This world is is full of false profets. I see churches all the time that make their sermons so that they may not offend someone in the audience. If we do not “offend” someone here then they will for sure be offended when it’s time to stand in judgment. This narrow path that is set keeps getting wider and wider. However the path entering Glory has not widened at all.

  2. Sad thing, this world is full of false profets. Churches today are not teaching what needs taught in fear of offending someone. Well if we don’t “offend” someone then they will will surely be offended. The narrow path that leads to Glory land seems to be getting wider and wider, however the path entering Heaven is just as narrow as it always has been. The world sure doesn’t care if it offends others to get them to believe their way and it seems to be working. Maybe believers should get back to good “Old fashion values”!!!

  3. here’s a [not so] glowing account of the role of western missionaries in developing countries: http://www.godlovesuganda.com/

  4. Jeff, Is is horrible when the “church” preaches something other than Christ. WE are supposed to bring the good news of Grace to others, not a message of hate and intolerance.

  5. “It is simply about Christ and Him crucified.”

    Amen. Pray it might be so!
