    Why is the subject of the Kingdom of God avoided by most churches?

    Throughout the four gospels of Matthew, Mark Luke and John the most common subject or the main focus of Jesus Christ's ministry was the Kingdom of God. There are at least 13 parables just in Matthew alone that is directly related to the Kingdom of God. The Sermon on the Mount which is in Matthew Chapter 5 thru 7 mentions the Kingdom subect at least 8 times. Within the four Gospels I already mention the Kingdom of God (Heaven) is mentioned by Jesus over 90 times. And yet this subject is seldom mentioned in churches. Why is the verse in Matthew 6:33 avoided by most so called christians?

      I said "...and is why he (Satan) uses "RELIGION" in "churches" to avoid TRUTH" of the "POWER" (Acts 1:9)  we would acquire by "obeying" His LAST Commandment (Acts 1:4)!
      Satan's job is to "Kill, steal & destroy" (souls) Jn10:10 & he uses RELI

    The subject of the Kingdom of God is avoided my most churches because they can't run on Kingdom principles. In fact, if people understood and obeyed the words of Christ, the system of what is called church would crumble.

    But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. - Matthew 6:33

    What churches do is the opposite of what Christ stated in Matthew. They first seek their own self-righteousness by making religious kingdoms run by hirelings for the people. They then use the name of Christ to whitewash themselves in their carnal religious endeavours as a means to attain God.

    Christ had harsh words for these type of people,

    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ - Matthew 7:21-23

    Unfortunately, there are many who claim to follow Christ, but there are few who actually know and obey his words.

      PandN- Thank you very uch for your answer. And I very much agree. The Kingdom message is seldom heard in churches nor is it a main subject of study by those who call themself "Christians. Getting the KIngdom message out there is important. Thanks
