Question From COGIC Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake: "What Can We Do As Followers Of Christ To Restore Faith?"
Readers, what do you think about that question? COGIC Presiding Bishop Charles E.Blake posted the above question along with the below comment to his Facebook page yesterday and it wasn't long before the finger pointing started. Most of the comments seem to point toward church leadership:
"Over the past several years, the Christian population in America has drastically dropped. What are your thoughts as to why this is happening?"
There are many reasons, but perhaps the biggest is that we are now experiencing the falling away from the original teachings of Christ and the Apostles. Our seminaries, churches, and leaders have been compromised with false teachings. They have been infiltrated by those who are determined to destroy the Christian Faith. This has not happened by accident It began in was occurring early Church but during the last one hundred years it has become well organized and is preparing for the coming false world leader. What we are seeing is the beginning of the consolidation of governments, religions, economies, etc. and it's just beginning.Comment:
Actually, we see so much corruption in our churches today. The standards, and purpose of the churches are not being carried out through Our Pastors. While the Pastors are busy competing with each other on who drives the most expensive cars or, who has the biggest church, the people who make up the church are suffering with no support from the church.Comment:
Blatant hypocrisy; particularly among right wing Christians. It appears that Christianity is utilized as a tool to manipulate the poor and middle class so that the elite rich can maintain power and wealth. Also, other Christians are too afraid to speak the truth in love, and to cry loud and spare not. There is a fear (which is not of God) of being labeled a bigot and close-minded. The path to salvation is narrow, but few are willing to take that path.Thoughts?
