Christianity teaches people to be Christ like, but in many ways, it concerns the life of Christians and their spiritual activities, or the omission of Christian duties and religious principles. Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 7:21
They draw near but remain far away from God, one cannot do the will of the father unless he or she is complexly surrendered, once saved is not always saved, a person must remained under the blood stain banner at all times, a life characterized by obedience to God is the true life of a Christian.
Christianity implies obedience to God, with a life presenting greater purposes, Jesus mention that his followers would do greater works, than what he was doing, looking around today we don't see much of that greater work been done, you would be hard press to see any professional individuals choosing Christianity, they may watch TBN for a short while, but then switch to higher rating soap opera.
When we pray for worldwide healing, the prayers does not have to be long, but they must have feelings, not hurriedly presenting a gospel of prosperity, always begging money to say a prayer for the less able, I don’t believe that is giving the right image of Christianity.
Television evangelism in haste to get a wider financial the appeal, can be a turn off for many viewers, when vast sums of money is emotionally ask to be sent in as seed sewing, and financial growth planting, but with vague scriptural basis to support their appeal. Frankly I am appalled at the length to which some television preachers will go in the pursuit of money making scams, using the name of Christ as a coat to cover their deception.
They are crocks that are near but far from the reality of what is seen in the bible, beware of those charismatic evangelist preaching for applause, a heart exercise in covetousness practices, they are clouds carried about without water, and their desire for sin is never satisfied. They lure unstable people into sin, and they are well trained in greed. They live under God's curse. 2 peter 2:14
They are like market women with evil charms on their wrists, who make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. They ensnare the lives of people but preserve their own.
According to the prophet Isaiah, these kinds of churches will exist in the last days. They will be churches fostering out tragic deceptions, and riding on the waves of people’s emotions. We do not need to speculate about the message that they will be preaching, because we will be able to discern the error of their way.
And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach Isaiah 4:1.
This is how the church will look prior to the rapture, the verse in the book of Isaiah explains plainly, and the prophecies could only be fulfilled in our present day, not before, and certainly it will not be after the rapture, now deceivers are coming out of the wood works.
Many years ago no one wanted to listen to a preacher, and getting a spot on the television was almost impossible, but now in this affluent society, media advertising can be paid for by partners pledging huge sums of money.
On closer inspection some of these top preachers in designer suits and ostentatious rings, are so wealthy, that they fly around from state to different countries with their own private jet, propagating the gospel accrued with bounty obviously from the spoil of the sheep.
Always the requirement of begging is added in the closing prayer, advocating that preachers are close to the poverty line. Which defeat the reason for becoming a Christian, salvation brings grace and mercy through Jesus Christ has always been the reason for people pursuing an alternative way of living, I was always under the impression that, if we seek first the kingdom of heaven all the things that I want in life would be added, maybe I have misinterpreted the scriptural metaphor.
