How can a church serve God and worship him if they are laying aside the commandments of God and is rejecting his commandments and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron?
St.Mark 7:6-13 This people honoreth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men, for laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups and many other such like things ye do.
I Timothy 4:1-2 Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.
Mrs. B LB, I agree with you. Sadly, church today, some not all, seem to be all about numbers. Money. How many can I bring in to increase the congregation?
It is not about lifting up truth!!! The conference says we owe?? How can we keep the doors open?
The real truth is if the Gospel was preached plain and straight, people would come. There is a hunger that is not being satisfied by worldly provision!
