The threat to the church or to my effectiveness as a kingdom citizen is not systemic racism, wokeness, injustice or the advancement of the LGBT agenda.
There is nothing external that can stand against the Church.
Or, did we not believe our Lord when He established the Church and said, “the gates of Hell will not prevail against it?” Matthew 16:18
Satan knows this well, which is why he instead tries to work from the inside.
“For I know this, after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.”
– Acts 20:29
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”
– Matthew 7:15
The threat is not external but internal.
Jesus did not say, “Beware those who vote for Trump” or “Beware CRT” but, “Beware the leaven of the [religious establishment] which is hypocrisy.” – Luke 12:1
Hypocrisy: the presenting as one thing while actually being another.
Two of the most pernicious forms of hypocrisy in the church today are the industrial church and cultural christianity. We’re losing way more of our children to this than to Disney.
We wrestle not against flesh and blood. Our hypocrisy is the real enemy.
Therefore, let us put away the leaven (1 Corinthians 5:7).
Let us come out from the #industrialchurch. Don’t go to church. Be the church.
Let us come out from #culturalchristianity. Don’t just claim Christ’s name. Seek Christ’s heart.
