I made a sudden shift this week out of my old church and I am now a part of an e-church. Honestly, some may have a problem with it, but I don’t. But the first thing I noticed is the difference in the preaching.
This pastor addresses sin on a regular basis, something the modern-day church knows nothing of. The church today had “overdosed” on grace, so if you point out sin, they think you are “persecuting” them. Well that is not what persecution is. The Bible is clear and lists a whole lot of sins that will take you to hell.
I am glad to be under such strong word. I realize God led me out because I needed something to help mature me. I am not a babe in Christ and I am not a carnal Christian either, but listening to this strong “meat” of the word is helping to to see, just how far I really am. Often we can become deceived about ourselves if the light of the word is not shined on us.
God is calling people out of mainstream churches to receive more of the meat of his word and He is raising up Apostles and Prophets who will stand flat-foot and not compromise God’s word.
New International Version (NIV)
12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
