Modern Church, Monster Church.

Practices in the modern evangelical church that I will NEVER ever get over.

1. Comedy Shows or StandUp Comedy in Churches.
Is the Church about Jokes now?

2. Award/Dinner Nights in churches.
What happens to selfless christian service and heavenly rewards?

3. Bodyguards or Ushers in churches looking like FBI/CIA Agents running everywhere.
Is the church under siege? This really freaks me out.

4. POS Machines in churches.
Maybe worshippers should pay their offerings into a designated bank account the next Monday morning. It gives the church some replica of sacred sanity, rather than look like a glorified Casino. Or maybe churches are scared their 'magic' would wear off before Monday?

5. Pulpit looking too much like a Concert Stage. Too many light works and special effects.
What is our main attraction? Christ or the others?

6. Everybody speaks in tongues that no one understands, yet nobody interprets.
How am I encouraged or edified if you motivate me in Latin where I'm Yoruba?

7. Special King-size Seats for the Presiding Pastor and his Mrs.
Are you the Lord or Jesus?

8. Special Stooges who carry even the Pastor's mobile phones and wife's bag.
Are they amputees?

9. Sharing the grace with the guy/girl beside you in church, yet you leave in your car without offering him/her a lift to a nearby bus stop.
Why not share your car and keep your grace?

10. You've not paid your rent, fees or tax but your tithe never suffers.
Always remember: God is merciful, but your landlord or government is not.

There are simply too many abominable practices today in the modern church, fast evolving into a monster church. Too many to even remember. Do you Believers know any?

How I wish I can like this post for like 100 times. These are real truths. Most modern churches are too worldly. You hardly differentiate a church and other worldly gatherings these days.


Well, it's the end time.

The only way you can experience true freedom in Christ is when you have sought out your salvation with fear and trembling and have come to that place where your spirit bares witness with the holy spirit that you are now a child of God. You can't fake this.
And when you are now a child of God you can now have liberty, the liberty you have is not the liberty to sin 'shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid'. But it is the liberty that liberates you from superstitions, legalistic forms such as food, bandage to holy days and seasons etc.
Eg. People being afraid of the sun, stars at night, an eclipse, the wind, the cry of a night bird or barking of dogs at night, always reading meanings into daily occurrences,fear of Devils, combination of numbers and certain days and stars patterns(constellations)

The superstitious man pictures a limited god who created a universe over which he cannot have full control. Therefore he assumes that demons, omens, and the rest roam up and down the earth and god hides in some cosmic closet, afraid of what he has created ;that is defamation of the divine character.
Christian liberty is freedom to live in the spirit and worship God in spirit and in truth.
So be sure that you are a true Christian and not 'I go to church, I pray, I don't steal, lie, fornicate , I pay my tithe and help the needy kind of christian' if this is your view on what Christianity is about then am sorry but you have the wrong notion cause even a Muslim does all this things too.
Shalom

Only if i get d question correctly.... undecided




But from d day of creation God has given man free will.
Man can live anyway he likes from beginning
And you being a Christian doesn't change that. You still av ur freedom but it's expected that u now submit ur all to God.. You live as God direct u.


You will always av ur freedom till u die, it's just that obeying God is best. Since He's ur creator and He's commanded u to obey His commandments.
Only d angels don't av freedom.
The only reason God created man was because He wanted a creature that will serve Him by choice not by default..
Ever wondered why man will man keep choosing? It's freedom...

Only if i get ur question embarassed

No.
It means living one's life as a reflection of the words and works of Christ, to the BEST of one's ability.
You need to constantly ask yourself if you have done your best in any circumstance compared to what Christ would have done.
Now, that is true freedom in Christ.

Freedom in Christ means you can live the Christlike life, and not be weighed down by sin.
It means you're no slave to sin, but slave to righteousness.
It means that by grace you are an overcomer-- even for things your flesh desires but will grieve your spirit (God's spirit).
It means you can do all things (God desires) through Christ who strengthens you.
You can call on power from above.
You are above the standards that govern this world-- God is limitless and therefore you are limitless.
You are bound by no chain, nor are you shackled by anything not of God.
He wants you free of even the limitations you impose on yourself and what others impose on you.
It means you have been given a spirit of excellence.

It's boundless, this freedom.

Think of everything your mind could possibly imagine God is capable of accomplishing in you and through you. And then imagine everything you're incapable of imagining...

That's the limitless power of the freedom you have received in Christ.

What does having a 'full' life mean to you? Imagine what it means to God smiley

How can you experience this freedom?
Abide in me. Live everyday with the consciousness that you abide in Christ and God abides in you. Do not grieve his spirit that has been given to you. Listen to what God says (study the bible). Pray without ceasing. Draw on His grace and let him work out from within you everything he has promised is yours.

As far as I'm concern, the question should be, do God really exist?
Re: How Can We Experience True Freedom In Christ? by freecocoa(f): 8:20am On Aug 28, 2016
Freedom in Christ means you get to do whatever you want, so long as it's in the name of Christ like so many evil and wicked people are already doing.
