The Church is a Whore


Ok. I know it is a bold and harsh accusation, but it is true.

I am not talking about your local church, but rather the Church as a whole. At least the Church in the western world.

The Church keeps whoring itself out to worldly ideas in the hopes of trying to appeal to more people. More people equals more money and influence.

Not attacking mega churches either. Not all of them at least. I am talking about the churches and people that compromise the Word of God and Gospel for something that isn’t as hard.

First, it is excepting of sexual immorality. Not just going to harp on homosexuality. There are plenty of married people out there having affairs and that action is not being condemned. Note, condemn the action and not the person. Single kids are out having premarital sex at unprecedented rates and we are just hoping they wont get a sexually transmitted disease. I understand there are people out there feeling lonely and hurt and just want to feel loved, but this type of fix is not permanent and just leads the person further away.

Marriage is not being pushed as man and woman as God intended but wants to be extended to everyone so no one feels left out. Marriage is supposed to be a covenant bond between the couple and God, not as a tax relief. I still think marriage shouldn’t be recognized by the government or give couples who want to be partnered a special title. That way, when the government recognizes gay unions as a marriage, they can’t force churches to participate or face the risk of losing the ability for heterosexual couples.

When did Hell become none existent? I understand how hard it is to think about your loved ones not going to Heaven. I lost my grandfather years ago and I am not sure where he will end up. My desire to not have him go to hell doesn’t mean that it isn’t there. God is fair and just. How just can you be if you say that if you accept Christ you have everlasting life or you go to hell and there not be a hell. If the Word says there is a hell, then there is a hell. Otherwise, God would be a liar. I admit, hell is a harsh place. It was designed for Lucifer and the fallen angels, but when Adam and Eve sinned, we inherited that place too. God is loving and gave us a way out, but He is not forcing us to go. Just because we don’t like the idea and don’t think God would be that mean doesn’t cause hell to cease existing.

I want everyone to be saved, but we can’t bastardize the Gospel just so people will want to some what follow it. We are causing people to come to a false religion, like Islam, or out right rejecting it cause the new Church is hypocritical. There has to be a clear line. God’s standard is that line. It is a hard standard, but Jesus allowed us to achieve it. Stop trying to water it down so people will be accepting of it cause it is now within their reach.

One response to “The Church is a Whore

  1. After going through and reading a few of your posts, I have to say that it is refreshing to see someone who is willing to stand up and be a Daniel in these trying times. Truth is absolute and never changes. As humans, we all have selfish desires and seek to include others in them. Only by the full Gospel of Christ, can we shed those desires and take on the nature of God (our original purpose). Keep on shining your light brightly and I will pray for your boldness to be strengthened.
    God bless, Glenn
