What’s Wrong With The Church?
What’s Wrong With America And The Church?
What’s the problem with the Church? Lack of education. Did you expect that answer?
Home schooling is probably the only cure for the decay of our society coupled with home churches and sacrificial efforts at evangelism.
Christians just don’t seem to know how to be Christians anymore. They don’t seem able to figure out that all the answers they need for dealing with life’s problems are in the Bible. And those that do know, don’t seem to know how to get the answers out of the Bible. I believe the reason for that is that we have an institutional church patterned after the public school system. The institutional church is wrong about most things that really matter – just like the public school system. And just like the public school system, the institutional church does not teach its pupils how to think for themselves, or to question what is taught.
How many churches do you know that teach their members what the word “hermeneutics” means? And then teach them how to do it? Pitifully few, if any.
Many Christians don’t seem to know the biblical patterns for raising children. They don’t know the biblical patterns for doing church. They don’t how to study the bible to figure out if they have got their doctrine right and if their teachers are correct about what they are teaching. Ignorance is the problem. Ignorance of history, of the bible, of so many things. Ignorance coupled with apathy. A church that wants to be spoon fed doctrine, wants all the things that the world wants… entertainment, easy stuff to do, easy stuff to believe, a super-simplified gospel that is not even the real gospel.
Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
