When you are ignorant of what the church is and its purpose, then you will resort to silly gimmicks, slogans and clown tactics to get attention to promote a ministry. Here’s an example of a “church” and some pastor, claiming that something is wrong with the church, and that the church “sucks” or is boring, mean, judgmental, etc. Wow, American Christianity at it again. Enjoy

----- Just when you think the church can't get any lower, it manages to scrape the bottom just a wee bit more. The church in the United States is so affluent and complacent, that it will even waste time trying to capture "white people" to come through the doors of a church. I didn't know that Wall Street demographic tools grew a church, I thought that the bible said: "and the LORD added to the church ...(Acts 2:47).

----If you watch this video you will see that witnessing does not have to be complicated it is very simple. And with the power of the Spirit, ANYONE can do it! You don't have to be a trained evangelist with the gift of evangelism or have the "gift of gab" or a "people person". All you have to have is a desire for the lost, who do not know Jesus as their Savior, and go for it!

--Both Facebook and Youtube attempted to censor an evangelical's movie clip, however when they get exposed of censorship they backpedal and allow the trailer of Kirk Cameron's movie trailer to play. Their excuse-"they thought it was spam" and "abusive". When it comes to the things of God the media will go out of it's way to censor and block anything that has to do with the gospel. Yet the amount of filth and vile videos people upload on youtube is insurmountable and they never blink an eye. If it wasn't for followers of Cameron blowing up Youtube and Facebook's headquarters, they would censor it and moved on. for more info click HERE

--ON IT'S WAY TO THE U.S.A. (that can be a cheer). Make no mistake about it this is coming to the shores of the United States. As Europe goes so goes the States- it's just a matter of time. We are living in a more and more hostile environment to the gospel and an even greater resistence to sin and immorality in any form. The leadership in government as well as society, is beccoming less and less tolerant of Christians and will eventually move to silence any speech that speaks againt the sin in human beings and the proclimation of the Gospel of Christ. As pressure increases against the advancement of God's kingdom, churches tend to water down the message to be less offensive and more tolerant to the masses. Let us pray that boldness to preach the faithful message of the good news-which is the only thing that can save humanity- continues regardless of the persecution that will come from a dying culture.

--Here is an example of the foolishness- an upcoming "reality" show about flamboyant preachers- that has invaded American evangelicalism. The culture of worldliness has taken over much of the church and secularism has invaded the American Christian landscape at such an alarming rate, that the church can't be distinguished from any other institution in society . Which leads me to believe that unless God sends revival, the fall of Western Christianity is inevitable. Years ago an article predicted why this will happen to a post-Christian America, and this video reveals the beginning fruit of that prediction.

Unfortunately many celebrity Christians forget that to be a public follower of Jesus Christ you will be scorned and persecuted. In fact even if you are not a celebrity you will be. However many fail to heed the message of Christ 2000 years ago about those that wanted to follow Him. He stated: " take up your cross...and consider the cost"(Luke 14:28) . Here is an example of a popular young man, in the celebrity limelight, who, once the heat of controversy warmed him, gets out of the kitchen. Sad to say, the historical landscape of classical Christianity is filled with those who dropped the cross under the weight of persecution. Let's hope Mr. Tebow picks up the cross again and continues on in the good fight of the faith.

Most of the public- so called "education" is basically propaganda for secular humanism. Yet rather than retreating, Christians need to be steeped enough in the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ to combat much of the nonsense that is being passed off as education in our public schools. However this must be done by getting Christians to first be educated about who they are as followers of Jesus Christ and what we believe. The world we live in is indeed pagan and confused but so was the Greek world that the early church encountered as it set out to expand the church. The kingdom of darkness is always opposing the "children of light" but that can't be an excuse for believers to not "put on the whole armor of God" so that they can be able to catapult the "gospel of peace" to men and women who are at "enmity against God". We must be equipped to intelligently articulate the message of the Jesus Christ's good news and all it entails, as well as defending the faith by being "...ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:(1 Peter 3:15) Remember "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world"
