Going Gonzo 10 Points on the Church Today

I know that I do not have a Degree from Seminary but I believe all believers should stand ready to testify about the state of the Church Today.   I am glad that I am in a church where biblical truth is central, and our pastor remains humbly at service.   As for the Gainesville preacher who is burning Korans out of spite; Hate only spreads a cloud over the truth, a cloud spreads over God, we no longer hear the clear voice of God; for our emotions have taken over.  We are fastened to an emotional cloud that deludes the mind.  

10  Points of Light for the deluded minds of today:

  1. Align our hearts in Love to be obedient to the LORD who is there and who cares. 
  2. We need to join community groups and churches  that have a backbone based in biblical truth (the word comes first). 
  3. We need to get back to reading the bible daily. So we can discern if the Church we belong to is truly biblical.   (I do not mean to do reading out of obligation, but for a love of the truth). If the bible is not center in our worship than we often go astray and do our own things, thinking we are doing what God wants us to do, but in reality the Diabolical Forces are whispering chaotic thoughts into our minds. 
  4. We need to get to the basics, back to the reformers like Johnathan Edwards and his  signs of true Christianity.       
  5. We need not tolerate antics from amateur pastors who are leading their fifty to millions of  members astray.(Read # 3).  If our church has made our Pastor the God then we need to first confront our Pastor, then if this does not work ask to join another church that is more biblically centered.  We should not join a church until we know that the biblical leaders are centered in the truth of the word. 
  6. We need to get back to prayer. (Corporate and Individual).  
  7. As well as imprinting the word through memorization of true biblical passages.  God's word found in the bible should be grafted on the front of our minds as we go out into the world.
  8. We need to budget our time and our expenses really be stewards of God's gifts, this includes tithing.  
  9. We need to grow in love with others who may not see how Christ is the savior.  We must be firm in our understanding, but loving in our approach to others.  
  10. We must ask god to forgive our mannishnes the need to put man first in worship and god last in our worship. 
  11. Avoid all Fascists tendencies including making a pointed list.  And when we do make Fascist agenda centered remarks make sure they are rooted in God's word.  Not out of straight opinion of the times.
