Christianity’s a lifestyle of passionate love for and growing obedience to Christ! People want parties to be extemporaneous, not stuffy. Why not church? We understand people getting impassioned about so many things. Why not Christ?
A mind-made message, enters your mind; but Jesus wants to remake your heart! Assurance of salvation must come from hearing Christ’s voice, not from a man. Our soundbite culture needs to see heart-felt enthusiasm for Christ–not mere words. In worship, all people & their names should disappear behind the risen Jesus!
People trained to sit unmoved in church, often live unmoved by the Gospel. When church fails to create a climate contagious with Christ, it relies on methods. When Christianity becomes a methodology, it loses sight of Spirit-led relationships. Jesus gave us no method for meeting because He, Himself, is the method (the way).
If we are not deeply stirred by God, how can we stir others? Share what Christ shows you, not what you hear or read from a religious celebrity. Church can take the most important & exciting news in history & bore people!
When people gather to experience Christ working in their midst, miracles happen. A single word from God spoken directly to your heart is worth a thousand sermons. Christ-followers need to hear burning words spoken directly by the risen Jesus!
He who controls mic access, controls the meeting. Let’s let Jesus be the mic Man! Without assurance you’ll lack endurance. Christ-led meetings reveal Jesus’ reality.
Some folks try to avoid Hell by explaining it away. I prefer to stay close to Jesus. Christianity teaches thoughts & behaviors have eternal consequences. Choose wisely. Some people say there’s no Hell. But what if they’re wrong? (Does that ring a Bell?) To warn people of dire danger is loving, not cruel. That’s why Jesus warned of Hell. The world says “Give ’em Hell!” Christ says “Love your enemies!” No one seems to object to the word “Hell” unless it is used theologically.
We humans miss up our lives, Jesus restores & redirects. Will you let Him? Jesus came to save; the devil to destroy. We can choose who to follow. Evil loses and will be forever separated from God. Jesus can save us from evil. Surrounded by hatred, violence, terrorism, self-abuse; many deny that demons exist.
What good is the theology of Heaven without Heaven in your heart? If you like these ideas, you’ll love my book, Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible–Ekklesia.
