you’re gonna feel a little pinch…
Read the Bible to your typical church congregation and it’s likely to be unacceptable to at least some, if not most of the listeners.
The hard truth is that the Word shreds at us like a cheese grater and many people don’t want to handle that kind of hard truth. Or maybe the Word isn’t written like a Grisham or romance novel and people are just too bored with it to continue in those mind numbing, dead services where scripture is the primary order of the day.
Either way, God’s word is no longer being tolerated in many Christian circles. Seeker friendly churches are severely limiting the number of scripture passages quoted, even going so far as to put The Book away entirely in order to preach a more acceptable message, something easier for the sensitive Sunday Christian types to swallow.
Something Biblical enough to pass as Christian, but not Gospel enough to cause church goers any discomfort. Gotta keep the masses happy, you know.
I can’t pretend to know God. But I just get this feeling that He wouldn’t be okay with that.
I just don’t understand why other people can’t see this. Sacrificing the Word in order to keep church goers appeased…
I’d say that’s a very dangerous game to play.
