The internet has truly changed our way of life. It has changed how we socialize, how we search for information, and how we express ourselves. No area has been more disastrously affected than the Christian Church.
In this digital age, anyone can run a talk show, online church or "theology" web site. If you peruse some of the Internet radio shows, or web sites, you may hear things such fallacies as:
This is serious. If you look deeper, you will find many who cannot or will not exist in a Church and under the leadership of any pastor. They are rebellious, Prideful and self-righteous. These are the people proclaiming to be the remnant Christians and put themselves over others.
This is serious stuff. It has truly alarmed me to see the delusion that is taking place with these online forums, talk shows and sites.
So many Christians waste so much time complaining about how bad Christian churches are, that they have No time left to actually pray for them. There is so much delusion and negativity, that it is leading many into false doctrine, and in some cases, away from the truth. I spoke to one man who was told that he has a Jezebel spirit, and he was too far gone to repent. This is just one of many horror stories.
It is important to be accountable to a leader, to respect those who are learned in scriptures, for all of us to have a spirit of humbleness, and to be able to learn. The Bible tells us that rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. (1 Samuel 15:23).
We need to practice Spiritual discernment and check out whatever we hear. Anything that does not line up with the scriptures should be rejected and in many cases, that teacher should also be rejected.
Finally, Let us take time to pray for those things that are false, and misleading. If the church is asleep, pray it will wake up. If Error is being preached, pray that GOD will expose and fix it. Sometimes we spend so much time complaining and pointing fingers, that we have no time to take it to the Lord and pray about what's wrong.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? (Romans 10:14)
I did a blog a while ago about ways of sharing your faith. Apparently there are a lot of shy people out there who appreciated the Blog, so here are some more suggestions on clever ways to spread the Gospel!
1. Set up a FREE BIBLE/INFO table at a flea market or yard sale.
2. Hand out Bibles, Tracts, or CD Tracts out at Nightclubs, and sporting events. If you need a great audio to burn to ch, you can download one by clicking HERE.
3. Get a clipboard, and go to malls or other busy places, and conduct a "poll" and ask people about their beliefs..etc. This is a fun way to open up a discussion.
4. Give a tracts to bank Tellers, doctors, Fast Food and Grocery store clerks.
5. Pay for the food of the person behind you in line at fast food places, or at the Drive-Thru, pay for the car behind you, and leave a tract or Bible for them.
Those are just a few ways....more coming soon.
Do you have any clever ideas? Leave us a comment!
Here are some resources for free or low cost Tracts and bibles.
