Is Our World Ready for Christianity?

In above views posted, i wondered about it for awhile on whether our world is ready for Christianity?

The World today although with the huge technological advantage over in AD40 to AD300, where the early church under the church leaders and Apostle Paul built on, actually is not much of a different. The world, i would define the world view in which the God of the biblical scriptures is generally very much opposed by the world view, and the culture it brings forth. Just as the author above has reiterated, that it is not the world in question, but the different type of soil as outlined in the scriptures.

Nevertheless, the question remains that is the World ready for Christianity? What ‘Christianity’ are we talking about? Is it the Social Christianity Rick Warren preaches? Is Christianity all about saving earth, being politically responsible citizen, and seeing from Rick’s session with the two presidential candidates, he has never once mentioned Jesus or question their faith, or if they are born again. I asked again, is this the Christianity in question? Yes definitely but the world needs more of this gospel where the central message of the Cross in the Gospel that this world is in Sin, and the Cross where Christ died for our Sins, and He has resurrected from the dead, and He is coming back, then this ‘Christianity’ is unpopular, even among so called leaders like Rick Warren, will the world be ready for this?

The only time the world is ready, is when the Lord of the Harvest, began to work, through the Holy Spirit to bring convictions of Sin to this world, and by the Grace and Mercy of our Lord Jesus, that the lost should come to the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus

Valuable traits in the troubled times

19 08 2008

As i read through my emails and came to a particular one at the new contemplative mysticism that is invading Christianity with the likes of Rick Warren. My heart grew heavy from such invasion was met with little or sometimes no resistance from the church for reasons that the Church is too ‘weak’ to stand up against such New Age deception. I began to reflect on why this weakness in the Church today. Not that i know the answer, but my conviction stands in the area that the Church has lost its first love and the discerning from the lack of knowledge.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being priest for me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Hosea 4:6

This verse spoke more conviction that there is a lack of CS Lewis, G.K Chesterton, Spurgeon, Wilberforce, Jonathan Edwards in today’s Church, and we have more and more Rick Warrens, preaching on Contemplative Mysticism, to enslave the church into harlotry – a biblical connotation of a prevailing mindset and inclination of worldly spiritual immortality, thinking that we can find the god within us, through good works as a key to justification within ourselves. What a lie!

We are justified by faith! And from that position of justification, we are spurred on to good works, not the other way right, that thinking we can justify ourselves with Good works and even resort to New Age practices to reach God. There is no way we can reach God, not within our brain, or within our spirit; for we can come into the presence of God first by HIS grace and mercy, for without Him, we cannot reach God. And only through the person of Jesus, who is the way the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him.

Why is the Church not standing up against the tide of Spiritual deception and wickedness? is it because the Church has despised knowledge and hence God has rejected us as priest?
