America is in dire need of a revival. It will never happen with the hirelings currently occupying our pulpits. It is at their feet that we must lay the killing, stealing, and destroying of the Christian heritage from this nation. It is time for a reformation*.
I’ve long said that what we need is a reformation of The Reformation. Luther didn’t get it, and neither are the vast majority of our current day church leaders. Their cisterns won’t hold water. They can’t pull us out of this mess, but some of them could if they had the right tools, the right idea.
Why isn’t God showing up, eh? He wants to.
I agree with what the coach says here. The cause for the fall of America is the church leaders. But beneath that, the deepest cause is the false doctrine that prevails in pulpits and on ‘Christian’ radio and TV.
My heart longs for people (even some of these church leaders who are often well meaning) who will be willing to discuss what the Bible really says about who goes to heaven, tithing, ‘Christians’ cursing people, power-under verses power-over, being totally right with God and people (Jesus’ Greatest Two Commandments!), even Holy Spirit led — the points I address in this site.
Let’s talk. Please?

…last week I promised to take on another issue, that of “the hirelings” in the pulpits.
Let me remind you that I am not a theologian; I have never attended seminary, and do not consider myself an expert on any Biblical issue. But I can read, and I can think. As I have taken time to do as the Bereans who “searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” I have found that many things I previously had been taught just simply did not line-up with Scripture. It was through my own study that I ran across something that up to now no one has been able to refute to me. Perhaps you can….I am not afraid of the Truth. …
John 10 is clear if read with an open mind. Hirelings are Pharisees and the Pharisees were hirelings….professional “ministers.” Jesus warned us about both.
How can we possibly restore righteousness to this nation when we can’t even get those who stand in the pulpit to honor the Word of God? How can we expect our elected officials to stand publicly against evil when the “men of the cloth” are too cowardly to do so?
Jesus’ anger was not directed towards the secular government but towards those who changed his house of prayer into a “den of thieves.”(There are those thieves again) He cleaned the house and today we need to do the same.
Christians have lost all credibility with the world. For the most part the public image of Christian leaders is money grubbing, hypocritical, and Republican, a far cry from the Christ we claim to serve.
America is in dire need of a revival. It will never happen with the hirelings currently occupying our pulpits. It is at their feet that we must lay the killing, stealing, and destroying of the Christian heritage from this nation. It is time for a reformation.
Instead of all of this talk about “reclaiming America” perhaps we should refocus on reclaiming our faith. Has there ever been an institution with more pathetic leadership than we see today in American Christianity? Nothing is more debilitating to an army than cowardly leadership.
