With the modern church system drawing people into their private kingdoms instead of the The person of Jesus Christ is there any hope for a change in them. Its all about their "church", money, and loyalty to their "church". This is exactly what scriptures warn would happen. They have become social clubs catering to those who are committed to them and not wanting to upset anyone, which is the opposite of Jesus.

this is not what I was asking but sure makes the point of the need for the question. thanks
this has nothing to do with "churches" This was about him as king-- about civil authority and in America today we see the fruit of an anti-God heathen (mus-slime) dictator wannabe
that sounds good but i have not found it to be true. most of the money people want the pomp and foolishness and dont want to be reminded of their sin, just want a feel good message. THose desiring real truth are usually not the affluent
The scriptures advise people to let go of the past, including sins. In other words, forgive and forget it. The scriptures say people can have abundant health and riches. That is one of the messages of Jesus. And expect miracles. Life is joy!
sriT--please give me the scriptures that say what you do and the name of your bible. there are none in my bible
John 10:10 I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do.
you do understand that this scripture is talking about spiritual riches and not money? the name it and claim it like copeland and hagan distort this scripture for gain.
What about doing that same works that Jesus did, and greater works. He did multiply the fishes and loaves. So we can do that too, according to him, if we believe in him. Lets do the greater works!
great idea if our motives are as pure as His. Doing it for the benefit of others, not for ourselves as todays leading preachers and most others do
the only thing i would say differently is -- todays church is for those who are devoted it it and its social benefits and not to Christ alone as a Christian is to be. belonging to a modern "church" does not make one a Christian.
The problem is that the leadership will not allow that, that's how they got in the mess in the first place, self serving leadership, drawing people to their "church" instead of to Christ.
correct , I would say one thing different. Christians should all pull out and LEAVE it for those that that actually belong in it. Then God will judge it. As long as there are Christians trying to change it from within it will remain
I can agree with that statement. Leave it for those with the mob mentality that don't want to think for themselves
You spoke to my heart Deepes Mind! This is exactly what my experience was that I was talking about above in my post. It hurts me to see this happening in churches where people turn against the wisdom of truth.
