My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

Here again is why the institutional church is breathing its last and churches are springing up in homes where they break bread together, have fellowship with one another and, relationships are established. This is the way the church met for the first 300 years of its existence. That is, until the emperor Constantine became a Christian and decided that his Christian god needed a temple like the other pagan gods that he used to worship had. Also, in addition to a temple, a priest was needed for this Christian temple just like the pagan temples had. Hence you have the beginning of the professional paid clergy that remains in existence today. Home churches from that time on were banned.

“What’s the problem? someone might ask. “People don’t go to church in the numbers they used to,” we answer. No, that’s not the problem. “People don’t give money to programs like they once did.” Nope, not that either. These are just symptoms.

And as long as you think the problem is lower attendance or giving, then the only possible response is to do what we’ve always done, except do it better. We preach the same as we always did, except now we use screens and PowerPoint. Worship hasn’t really changed, but now we’ve thrown in a drum set. What we are doing is fundamentally the same, yet we somehow expect different results….(excerpted from above blog)”

hmmm….maybe the problem is THEOLOGICAL

Ie changing the time of church or the order of worship and adding more programs (the most common solutions I’ve seen to “change” the church) do not an exciting/relevant…

  1. Great share! Did y’all hear/read that link that I posted today from The God Journey? It’s all about the misunderstanding that the religious have about those that are leaving church and why. Good stuff.

    Hi Tony,
    I believe that so many preachers are not listen Holy Spirit now. They preach what ever comes into their head and do not let the Lord led them. So many young preacher that come out Bible College, don’t know what it is to preach. They are not taught about the Holy Spirit or even what He does or can do. Their message are so secular.
    I am praying for the preacher, and I took him several pages with scripture to help him. They were all on the Holy Spirit and who He is and what He does. But if he reads it or not, I don’t know.
    I hated to leave the church I have been going to for so long, but the whole church seems to just be dead there now. Several couples have left there, and I have stay for many preachers for years. But when they went looking for a new preacher, it was all men and some of them were masons. There were suppose two women also, but out of regulations they took them out, and put two more men. That is against the regulations of our church. Because they acted out of regulation, the Lord did not bless them with wisdom to find another preacher that was of God.
    I feel this is going on in a lot of churches today. Deacons and Mason’s trying to take over and not finding Godly men.
    But we will not tarry to find a Godly church to go to.
    Sincerely,
    Marsha
