I know the attack is coming after this post...
Over the past 2 months I’ve been observing a lot of social media postings and have found a staggering trend.
Around every corner there is criticism of the “church” or it’s servants (ie the pastors and ministers). Interestingly enough the criticism and dissension that is out there mostly comes from Christians or other church people!
Simultaneously I watch the same people who harshly criticize the church and it’s servants turn right around with love, support and acceptance to everything and everyone who displays sinful behaviors or an uninspired lifestyle.
This is trippy to me...
It’s like I’m living in the matrix or something.
So the Christians attack other Christians causing divisions amongst all corners of Christianity but then embrace the world, it’s evil and in all of its fallacy like that’s our jobs as Christians. It’s actually a bit draining and disheartening.
Divide and conquer.
This morning the Lord opened my eyes to this subtle and detrimental trick of the enemy in our culture.
We are clearly watching the church wage war against the church, then reverence the world’s god. Just as we’re sitting back watching the world wage war against the church then reverence the god of themselves. So at the end of the day the church is attacked from both the inside and outside as the gods the world reverences are lifted up.
Does that sound complicated??? I’ll tell you why...
1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” It’s clear as day that the enemy is after the Lord’s church and it seems like he’s going to try to use the Lord’s church to destroy the Lord’s church.
