I couldn’t help it. I had to extend my critique of the American church again through another month, August. The American church needs a lot of help. We are failing and falling and declining and dying out in American “Christianity” (though real Christianity is not fading, I only speak of what people claim to be Christianity).
So one more month of critiques though many of you think I am ranting. I am concerned greatly about the glory of God to be proclaimed through His body in America so I pray that you and I both change as a result of the Word of God presented in these blogs.
-Mark (grateful that Christ is building His church and that the gates of hell will not prevail against it – Matthew 16)
NOTE: Jesus said in Matthew 16:18b: “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” That is NOT the church I am critiquing in THIS post. Instead, I am critiquing American churchianity, the spectator sport of not participating in disciple-making (Matt. 28:18-20) by speaking the truth in love to others (Eph. 4:15-16) to build the real church: the body of Christ! Jesus’ real church will never be critiqued!
