While multitudes of Christians and servant leaders remain faithful to scripture, we have some that have left the Bible. Those leaders who have left the Bible behind have also left their congregations dangerously ignorant of biblical truth.
Be sure they will play music and song after song to them-while some of the members consider suicide. They will preach warm and fuzzy homilies upon homilies, with humor to tickle the ears of the congregants-while some of the members live together, and others indulge in sex outside of marriage.
Such leaders don’t trust the Bible, and some don’t want to. In place of the Bible they have substituted their personal opinion of what Christianity is. What they feed their congregation with is a counterfeit, religion, a counterfeit Bible and weak worldly substitutes of a music festival and entertainment for false worship.
Their useless homilies usually quote some guy they admire, even writers of blasphemous fictionalized accounts of scripture. Why not? It seems like the truth to them.
If anyone is a so called leader who has left the Bible that person has blood on their hands. The blood of those who have committed suicide on their watch, because they never comforted them nor helped them to know they did not and never will have the right to take a life even their own. The blood of aborted babies is on their hands, because they refused to stand on biblical truth that bans sex outside of marriage, and the killing of babies resulting from uncontrolled sexual lust. Worst of all is the blood on their hands because many came to ruin because they had no biblical foundation to guide them in the world, and never, never heard the gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Repent! Repent! Repent! Return to the Bible, fire these parasitic musicians and singers and let them go and get real jobs, and stop draining the ministry. Stop preaching useless homilies some of it even based on fiction writers. Stop teaching counterfeit religion that only exists in your mind. Teach the people the Bible so that they will have a biblical foundation and be protected from satan and every wind and doctrine. Teach them to trust and obey Jesus Christ and do the same yourself.
However, if you can be content and pleased with yourself; because the people enjoy the music and singing festivals, get a kick out of your homilies with humor. If you can blow off the rampant sexual misconduct, suicides and abortions taking place amongst your members as though it is nothing; if you can turn your back on the Bible of Jesus Christ you do not belong to the kingdom of God, but to the devil’s and you will not escape the wrath of God. God is your enemy and His hand is against you. Vengeance is mine saith the Lord-I will repay.
Yes you might feel good now because life seems pretty good to you, nevertheless you will be turned into hell, and at the end of the world into the lake of fire where you will burn for all eternity, and be forever excluded from the presence of the only true God.

Literally millions of dollars are sucked out of some Christian churches, through non biblical parasitic add -ons. The problems stem from the top down from those leaders who do not value the Bible, the word of God, and institute weak substitutes in its place. Such places cannot provide a biblical foundation for its members, who without it, continue to live just like the world around them.
Brothers and sisters, those with so called degrees in “sacred music” would not be able to find a real job like the rest of the churches members. I think many of them would be hard pressed to witness or even to know much about the essential doctrine of scripture. Yet it is not uncommon for some churches to devote much if not all of its service to the music and singers. The limited homily message is left for somewhere between the music and announcements.
Getting the music just right, getting the choir to hit the right note to excite the ear that’s the ticket. Getting bob and sherry to buy the right choir gowns, on their minimum wage salary, to hide their cheap clothing, all they can afford, to look just right, this is the way to go. Who knows if the crowd is wowed, maybe more CDS will be sold. Maybe one day they will be signed on with a big recording studio, and maybe become rich.
The big prayer time for such musicians et. al. might take just a few minutes before performance; to ask the Lord to make the people like their music. At the end of the day after all their hard work they deserve to relax with a drink, and watch the latest movie.
Real interactive worship of preaching, teaching, and congregational singing to God is lost in such places. Members are more likely to consult the horoscope than the Bible. It would not be rocket science to conclude that the so called church leaders have more faith in the power of the music, than the word of God. Some if not all of them may not even be saved.
God commands every Christian to study, believe and apply the gospel message to their lives, in public and in private. God ain’t never told anybody to pay somebody to just sing the gospel message to the congregation. This is one of the causes of the financial hemorrhaging of some churches that must be brought to an end. That money could be used for teaching and preaching the Bible, support of the ministry and ministry to the congregation.
Every Christian can and must witness to others. However, the Bible remains the foundation of Christian life. The Bible instructs us how to worship, and furnishes details, in the minutiae, as well as in the general of how to handle every aspect of life. There is not one issue in Christian life that is not addressed in the Bible. Oh yeah, one might say, “what about the husband or wife who spends so much money and time on video games that the needs of the family is neglected?” If the husband or wife is a true Christian, let the Bible address and correct them starting at the second chapter of Ephesians. Do not leave out 1 Ti. 5:8 which is amongst many other verses. Our Creator has forewarned all of us to avoid the sins that arise out of getting caught up in the lusts and pleasures of the mind, as well as the body.
Now there are some who feel very comfortable today, because they attend, better hang out at the church building regularly, and contribute to the best of their ability to the ministry. They feel good because they do not drink, smoke or use foul language. They have never been arrested for a crime, everybody speaks well of them, and the church has awarded them certificates for attendance, and even for collecting the most money for the building fund. They know the pastors biography by heart and how many degrees he holds. Except for Sunday morning Bible school, they never crack open the Bible or actually apply any of it to their lives. After all they say “it don’t take all that”. Such persons feel assured that one day they will most certainly enter heaven and be richly rewarded there.
Some might refer to such people as nominal Christians, even carnal or worldly Christians. However the Bible does not account such persons as Christians at all. What this represents is counterfeit faith and self-deception. No one can earn salvation by their own works of righteousness. Human righteousness without salvation is filthy rags before the Lord. Anyone who thinks they can be saved by their own good works will one day die and wake up in hell.
Hanging out at church won’t save you, good works won’t save you, being well thought of won’t save you, being the world’s best singer or musician won’t save you. Your personal opinion of what salvation is that contradicts the Bible won’t save you either.
God will not negotiate or compromise His word with you, me or anyone. Do not deceive yourself that somehow God will make an exception for you-He absolutely will not.
Faith in Jesus Christ for the remission of sins is the only way into heaven.
Jhn 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus Christ is the only Saviour, He died on the cross and rose again to save sinners from their sins. Confess and repent of your sins and believe on Jesus Christ as your Saviour for the forgiveness of your sins, and to be made a child of God, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
After salvation, your good works will spring forth as fruit enabled by the Holy Spirit, not mere human attempts to “be good”. In other words good works do not save us, but arise out of our salvation.

WHEN MEN RULE FOOLS REIGN
1 Cor. 3:16 Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you? 17 God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.
18 Stop deceiving yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world’s standards, you need to become a fool to be truly wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say,
“He traps the wise
in the snare of their own cleverness.”[e]
20 And again,
“The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise;
he knows they are worthless.”
21 So don’t boast about following a particular human leader. For everything belongs to you— 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Peter, or the world, or life and death, or the present and the future. Everything belongs to you, 23 and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God. NLV
Brothers and sisters in these last days as it ever was, the Bible correctly understood, preached and lived is the final answer, sole eternal uncompromising, incorruptible standard and foundation, not only for the people of God, but for the whole world. The church must not comingle the gospel of Jesus Christ with the meaningless wisdom of the so-called wise of this world.
The glorification of so called leaders, and/or "founders" and the gospel music industry have about taken over some churches. The gospel message and congregational singing to the Lord, has been usurped by so called leaders and/or “founders” of the church, music programs, bands and singers.
They got rhythm they got swag, they got drums, they got singers who can hit the highest notes, they got instruments that can make the body jump and the feet to tap automatically with the tempo. They got lyrics anonymous, which never mention the name of God. They got people filling up the place- coming just to hear a false gospel based on emotionalism of the leader and/or “founder”, and the music, and to fill the coffers of the church to the full.
They got people without the foundation of the Bible, living just like the world. They got a blind eye to the antics of their musicians, some practicing homosexuals, vile wife and child abusers, drunkards, adulterers, out of control and through their evil examples corrupting the morals of many.
Some of these including the leaders and/or “founder” are not even saved. But hey, that’s cool, they are bringing the people in… and money, that’s what counts right??? This is absolutely wrong, even doubly so.
The people of God are not to glorify and put men before God, not ever. We must not allow fools to reign in our lives as God commands. Let everyone of us keep our Bibles open, ever resisting and rejecting false gospels, while ever correctly teaching and living the gospel message of Jesus Christ before God and all men. God through His word delivers us from corrupt fools whose wisdom is the height of human foolishness.
Be sure, God will destroy those who bring defilement, corruption, and decay amongst the people of God. The people of God are the temple of God, which is holy.

I recall a Christian woman, married to an unsaved man, would rag about his shortcomings after barely meeting others. She relished a fresh ear that had not been told of her husband’s faults and would eagerly fill it. Initially he agreed to come to church with her, but noticed an atmosphere of unfriendliness towards him there. His reputation had preceded him, through her, and her friends greeted him with coolness. Eventually he refused to go anywhere with her.
I recall a Christian man whose desire was for his family to be saved. He treated his wife and children with disrespect, spent their money mostly on him, while neglecting their needs. When the wife complained, he would tell her it was for “the Lord’s work”. However she became suspicious that for him “the Lord’s work” was to fulfill her husband’s desires only. In every prayer group he would rag on his family’s short comings, and then add that he would like prayer for their salvation. He was also very quarrelsome and fault finding with everyone he knew.
Brothers and sisters, not only should we witness to others without delay, but God also requires us as His ambassadors, to live the gospel message privately and publicly out of love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us that not only our words but our lives as well must be in line with the full gospel message.
Nothing in scripture leads us to think that witnessing to others alone without actually living the truth of the gospel message ourselves will justify us before God. Not only must we witness, but God commands that we ourselves live the life we claim to have in Jesus Christ, before God the Father and all men.
Jesus Christ encourages and warns us about:
THE BEAM IN OUR EYES
Wed, Dec 4th - 1:46AM
Jesus never said the Ephesians had no love, but the love that they had, they left and tried to substitute their works without love in its place. Did they think Lord Jesus would not notice?!!!! The king indeed notices and is greatly displeased with them.
The Ephesian church has not fallen into apostasy, but from the essential core of Christian faith- OUR FIRST LOVE JESUS CHRIST.
Therefore, brothers and sisters take heed. Anyone tempted to be dismissive of love, and think mere works are of more importance-YOU have left your first love. YOU must repent and do your first works just as Christ told the Ephesian church.
God will ensure the completion of His church, even if He must first discipline some out of love.
We can work without love, but only those who stay with OUR FIRST LOVE JESUS CHRIST can truly serve Him. Most assuredly the King will help all the churches complete their final test of love on earth, before He takes them from the earth. In this we can take heart. If there be any that have left their first love, repent, repent, repent, and do the first works that were done with passion, zeal and love in true service to the King. The Lord Jesus Christ is with us to help us to both will and do. LOVE NEVER FAILS.
