Just Preach Jesus

I saw part of a video on Fb the other day. It was all about conspiracy and anti-this and anti-that. The statements are given as if they are fact without viable proof that they are.
There were no documents presented, no pictures, no quote; just talk about the things as if they were so.
The problem I have is they were from the pulpit and directed at a particular church group.
As much as I’m opposed to reading books without checking out the author and the author’s belief, I am also opposed to bashing other religions and churches, especially from the pulpit.
People are not going to run forward, repent of sin, and accept Jesus as Savior because of bashing other churches or shouting conspiracy theories.
It’s only through the preaching of the cross that lives are changed and rerouted to God.
It is written if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. 1 Cor 15:14
I might say that if Christ is not preached, then preaching is also in vain.
It is a very true saying “how shall they hear without a preacher?” Rom 10:14
How shall they hear if the preacher does not preach Jesus?
The early church knew the importance of preaching Jesus as the Christ. They knew the power of His Name to turn those from their sin.
Daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ. Acts 5:42
The apostles and disciples did not rail against the Roman government, they did not preach conspiracy theories, nor did they necessarily run down the Pharisee’s and Saducee’s. Instead they preached Jesus!
Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip. Acts 8:5-6
Churches would be better served by a pastor that got away from the political, the social, the anti and just preached the Word of God!
I take these words to heart that the Apostle Paul said, “Woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” 1 Cor 9:16

  2. You are right. When itchy ears come into play & scratchy lips take over many are satisfied. The truth is not what they want. I am so sorry it’s that way. If God had wanted everthing to be the same why then are there so many different kinds of trees? flowers? birds…I like that one. There are birds that do not fly, yet they are birds!
