Fables of the Mega Church (and smaller churches too)

Why in the world are people faithful to Pastors who don’t fit the qualifications of a Bishop? Can someone please help me understand? You and I have read enough papers this year to see that so-called Bishops are shaming the name of Christ over and over and over, yet congregations still number in the thousands with some of these ministries. The Pastor drives 100k cars, while church members are on the bus. Pastors have private jets and helicopters, yet parishioners can’t even afford a plane ticket or even an Amtrak ticket to get to their next destination. But hey, those are just outward observations. What about inward? Pastors are cheating on their wives, they have a bad report amongst the people (both saints and sinners), serious drug habits, sexual promiscuity with same-sex relations and opposite sex relations. Some Pastors are stealing money from the church and in latter times have discovered and thrown in jail.

Looks Saints, I’m not throwing stones, but I’m so concerned with the state of Christianity. True, God has a church both in the grave and with The Saints who are still alive on earth, but boy do we have some acts to clean up. I’m not limiting this to just the Apostolic Church, I’m sharing these observations with you from a Christianity standpoint as a whole. Even though the majority of these church’s operate in partial truth, I belive as long as there is life there is hope for the Holy Ghost to touch the heart of these people so that their eyes are open to the full gospel (and not just partiality of the gospel).

Dear reader, do you even have a clue what the qualifications are of a Bishop? This list is not an optional list. It is mandated that everyone called to Pastor follow these rules.

1 Timothy 3:1-7 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

I’m not trying to tell you to “judge” your current Pastor, what I’m telling you is that if your Pastor is not living up to 1 Timothy 3:1-7 , he is out-of-order and you need to find leadership that is striving to be obedient to the Word in its totality. Bible didn’t say he couldn’t sin, but it did say he must be blameless. Bible didn’t say he had to stay single, but it did say he needs to be a husband of ONE wife. Bible didn’t even say he couldn’t use rubbing alcohol (lol..lol….thats a joke) but it did say he couldn’t be a drunk!

All I’m saying is DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. These false TV evangelist have no intentions of seeing your soul get to heaven. Instead, the gospel has become a franchise across America that’s prostituting to people who love to hear gimmicks, tricks, and fables. Instead of following these woof in sheep’s clothing, I beg you, allow the Holy Ghost to take the blinders off your eyes and become a part of a church that is concerned with your soul salvation. Since we already know salvation is found through Acts 2:38 (if you didn’t know, now you know) at least make sure the church is teachings the basic principles of the Apostles. I’m not the only blog nor the only writer on the internet sending this warning, there are numerous blogs who would agree, the “church” is becoming the laughing-stock, the butt of all jokes BECAUSE OF THE RISE OF THESE FALSE PROPHETS who soothsay in the pulpit.

There is hope. I repeat, THERE IS HOPE! Unfortunately, if you don’t heed this warning, there is a greater deception that awaits you. When the anti-christ reveals himself, you’re going to fall prey to his tactics and ultimately go straight to hell with the devil and his angels. Hell was NOT created for you so why go? Why willingly be deceived? Why follow a temporal religions that ends up being cast into the lake of fire when you can choose TRUTH TODAY!

Oh God, please listen. If you know of someone who that is being fooled by pulpit shenanigans, I beg of you to shoot them an email with this post attached so that they can be warned before it’s too late.

Saints, God is coming back for a church without a spot or wrinkle. I want to be ready for his return. Oh what a great day that will be! No need to pack your bags or get any movers ready, cause your mansion has already been prepared and awaits you on arrival.

Seek the Lord while He may be found, before it’s too late. Receive this message with love in Jesus Name.

P.S. To all my Apostolic Pastors keep the Apostolic Doctrine in its totality and wont compromise, I commend you, but the greatest commendation and reward can only come from Our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep the faith, your sermons are NOT in vain. Sheep like me need you to keep delivering the Word just how God gave it to you. PREACH till hell bound souls become heaven bound. Preach till deliverance breaks out in every service your church has. Stand fast and dont compromise.
