Don't worry, no King James English for this one. Today, I stayed in the main sanctuary as opposed to teen church because teen church was canceled. I analyzed what the guest pastor was saying. Here is what I found, and this is a very reoccurring problem in my church, and I believe many other churches as well. The message focused not in Christ, but on blessings. It always does this. The church is a "feel-good" church, where they make you feel good so you can keep on coming back. It was of no surprise to me that the senior pastor askee everyone to put money on the altar at the end of service. My church seems very humanistic to me, focusing on the believer and not Jesus Christ. This is a deadly issue, because I am almost certain that more than half of that church is not truly saved. I want to be a pastor(/theologian) and I always told myself that if it us God's will for me to become a pastor, I would treat the people as if they were not truly saved. I would focus entirely on Christ. I believe that the pastor's main job is to help enhance the believer's personal relationship with Christ, and to teach them USEFUL doctrine, always focusing entirely on Christ (unless they want to do a throwback into the Old Testament). But I believe that they should be led by the Holy Spirit, not themselves. In conclusion, I believe that my church, along with many other churches, is not doing its job well. What do ye (sorry, I had to) think?
