Very timely discussion Pastor Jack. I especially say “Amen” to knowing your Bible. We have now had two generations of folks being raised in America with little or no knowledge of the Bible as the churches become abandoned in our country. Those churches which remain often tout the social gospel or “convenience” preaching to attract those who are being deceived.

Others who would preach the true Gospel are being marginalized as “haters” or “bigots” because the world refuses to believe a God of love would send anyone to hell. It is tough days for Christians in America besides around the world. I await the Supreme Court’s decision on same sex marriage later this month, although I fear they will come to the wrong decision. If so, I am wondering how long it will take to start seeing pastors who refuse to comply with the “new” normal to be incarcerated.

If/when that happens, I believe it won’t be long before the Lord returns. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus!

Thanks brother. I am also eagerly awaiting that Great Day of His return…(soon? don’t know) and yes, come quickly is right. I am ready to go to jail…for His glory and for His truth. I once read a survey of Christians who thought that the epistles were the apostles wife’s. Biblical illiteracy is at an all time high, so you are exactly right my friend. Great comment.

Thank you for calling our attention to this important topic, with yet another fine post.

Sometimes money motives can be fairly well hidden. “who come to you in sheep’s clothing”

Another thing to consider would be Isiah 66:2

But this is the one to whom I will look:
he who is humble and contrite in spirit
and trembles at my word. ESV

There is a song by Francesca Battistelli called “He Knows My Name” https://youtu.be/1NHQJWdXfFE

Part of the lyrics are:

“I don’t need my name in lights
I’m famous in my Father’s eyes
Make no mistake
He knows my name
I’m not living for applause
I’m already so adored
It’s all His stage
He knows my name oh, oh,
He knows my name oh, oh”

Even if you don’t research the net worth of a televangelist or other celebrity preacher/pastor, are they building their name like a brand? Are they building a personal kingdom here on earth?

On a smaller scale, it is good to keep Isiah 66:2 as a test of character as well.

I know many Christians who have completely given up on the idea of going to church, due to an inability to find a “good” or “true” church. Could this be because of the sheer number of false prophets these days? While it may be safest (free of false prophets) to study your Holy Bible by yourself, there is still a need for fellowship with other believers. I agree with DocReits, come quickly Lord Jesus!

Very nice my brother. So much truth here and yes, Isaiah 66:2 is so important since God is opposed (the word means “to be at work with”) the proud (in James 4:6?). Just as the wheat is maturing, so too are the tares, growing more evil and deceitful day by day till the harvest comes (soon?).

I love Frannie’s music. Thanks for sharing Jim

Amen Pam. I am in agreement with you.

Francesca Battistelli, her songs are so encouraging, such a beautiful voice. “He Knows My Name” lyrics really inspiring
