The Kingdom of God was the main focus of Christ's ministry, so why do clergies avoid this subject?


The Kindom of God was the main focus of Jesus Christ's ministry while He was on earth. So why do most church clergies avoid the Kingdom message that Christ taught? Why we should seek first is stated by Jesus Christ in Matthew 6:33 (NKJV) which states: 33 "But seek FIRST the KINGDOM OF GOD and all His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you." Clearly the Kingdom message is not the main focus in churches today, why not?

    Rachael Lefler- I agree that church clergies do support the Kingdoms of theworld and chergies are interested in the Kingdom of God. We must not forget that clergies make their own little kingdoms to rule over. Take the Pope for example.

    celafoe-thank you for your answer. I couldn't agree with you more. I don't believe the true meaning of Matthew 6:33 has ever crossed their minds.

    manatita44- Thanks for your answer. What little is taught by churches with regards to the Kingdom of God is most often out of context. Most so called christians seldom seek the Kingdom when they study if at all. It was the center of Christ's ministry

    John was not formed part of the Trinity.

    In the Catholic Congregation, we strongly believe in the Ministry of the Trinity. This is our Faith! Search and you will find it! Thank you!

    flpalermo- Thank you. Matthew 7:21 sataes: 21 Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord ; shall enter the Kingom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven." I believe it's a bit more complicated but there's no room here to explain.

    David Candel- It does seem that churches want to be "seeker friendly" as oppose to seeking the Kingdom of God which they seem to have no enterest. And this is partly the fault of the clergies who don't understand the Kingdom of God nature or hid it.

    roselinsojan- I agree with your comment. Clergies interpretations are different. When earning their theology degrees they learn nothing of the true Kingdom of God because they are not guided by the Holy Spirit Most have personal agendas.

    No, the kingdom of god becomes established within you by staying present 'in the moment' with your entire being as often as possible. Religious 'beliefs' & lies keep your attention circumvented or diverted. I'm not talking about 'observing', Nori
