Worldly Churches

  1. The answer to your opening question is not an easy one, for many people. Much of it depends on what one understands to be “Worldly” – there are some churches who think that using ANY musical instruments at all during songs is worldly. There are christians who think that skirts that end at the knee or just above the knee are worldly. There are believers who think that quoting from catholic writers is not appropriate. And there are a whole host of perspectives, among christians, about various types of christian music.

    It is clear that the unashamed and full potency of the Gospel should be preached and communicated, in the church. Sadly, the number of churches that have such preaching and communication are dwindling in number. May the Lord bless your work at Evangel, and may it be a haven for many.

  2. Ken,
    John MacArthur hosts a program entitled “Does the Truth Matter Anymore?” Great teaching and viewing! Here is a short description:

    “Everywhere is apathy. Nobody cares whether that which is preached is true or false. A sermon is a sermon whatever the subject; only, the shorter it is the better.”
    Those words were written by Charles Spurgeon MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO! Yet, he might have just as easily been describing the state of the church at the beginning of the 21st Century.

    Well, in this “tell-it-like-it-is” indictment of the attitudes, methods and approaches of much of the modern church, Pastor John MacArthur picks up where Charles Spurgeon left off.

    This is ‘MUST VIEWING” for the modern Christian.

    John really deals with the issue of pragmatism in our day as Spurgeon did in his day. Below is the link where you can order the series if you so desire.
