That's Entertainment

The Bugs Bunny Road Runner show used to come on with:  "Overtures, dim the lights this is it the night of nights.  No more rehearsing and nursing a part, we know every part by heart". The last line was "Oh what heights we'll hit.  On with the show this is it!" Many churches today are more Show time at the Appolo instead of teaching about the blood of Jesus. And the people love  it.  There are buildings where everyone knows their part by heart and you can tell what is coming before it happens. There are ministries that bring in the new sensations in Christian entertainment.  The latest and greatest singers dancers speakers who are living his or her 15 minutes of fame.  How does any of this change one life and lead any one to salvation  through Jesus Christ our Lord? Pastors have become ring masters trying to make their side show the  greatest show on earth. Nero fiddled while Rome burned and the church is playing games while people are dying and their souls condemend to burn in Hell. The next time you exit an alleged church service, consider this.  If you heard about the goodness of Jesus, how He gave His life on Calvary to save your soul from Satan, and you were told about the power in His Nane and His blood. And a call was given for sinners to give their lives to the Savior, then you lisened to a true gospel message.  But if you heard how great the pastor is and that this church is better than others, and you saw dancing prancing shoutung jumping and running, you have been deceived.  If you were told you must connect to a man and a ministry, and you heard nothing about salvation through Christ, and the message was on how you represent God well when you have money, and you should make your pastor a millionaire, you better head for the hills. If you were told to scream, jump 10 times reach up anad grab your blessing because it's on the way it's on the way it's on the way, That's not the true church, that my friend is entertainement! The church is 2 or 3 gathered in His Name, focusing on HIM and giving Him all the glory honor and praise.  Anything else and you have been punked. Make a choice today. Where is your heart?  Do you desire the mega church with  te overflow room where the attitude is: "Let me entertain you, let me make you smile, I can do a few tricks some old and some new tricks I'm very versatile."  Or will you choose a small gathering of those who love  the Lord?  Do you desire to enter His presence or be entertained!
