From 88th in Racine in Chicago to 78th in Racine… St. Sabina is one the oldest churches in that location. There has to be almost be 50 churches within a 1/2 mile radius almost 3 to five churches on one block…
I’m serious and its stupid! There is also almost one liquor store or bar to match per every 5 churches…
Can someone say… Call the Mayor…Call a community uproar! Where is the meeting of the mind, body and spirit on this one?
What in the world is purpose of the church when they represent no power? Store front churches to historical landmark. I’m actually starting to believe… Chicago is a place is where we want a whole lot of nothing but its all ORGANIZED CHAOS! As many as you might think stand for the truth and taking it to the streets build their enormous egos!
Lets do away with the first myth…
That all churches believe in God …Wrong… And it appears that many of them don’t represent God either!
I would like to ask every leader and or Pastors. What is the purpose of your spiritual institution? What spiritual boot camps are your people really joining?
It’s the truth folks… more and more are coming to church for hook ups… being it SEXUAL, FINANCIAL, POSITIONS… OR JUST SHEER POWER TRIPPING! With all the ” so-called” Jesus on the block. There should be more strong support for community networking. God presence, the power an authority to trample on scorpions and community serpents!
Unfortunately, Chicago is a great city … but it might represent a lot of things! It appears to be more in line of city borderline schizophrenic! Are we not all reading the same bible? The church is where we getting more than marching orders… it is apart of a vein that feeds God’s people. to take the city… and bring true reformation. Many scream and holler as if the devil is afraid of volume. Satan knows who has power and he isn’t running from the church … He is actually running the church!
1)We have oversize ” American Idols” with big heads in the pulpit.
2)You need two jobs to sit in the pew.
3)We have a people who misrepresent what Christ stood for.
4) There is a lack discipline, correcting , pruning and or rebuking
5)We have a bunch of social-climbing, social organizing all in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the HOLY SPIRIT pushing their agendas…
Jesus is love but he ain’t STUPID! Please stop using God as a means of pushing “fruitless agendas” and job opportunities. We have all lowered the bar… in some way or in some form. If you sit and say nothing you are just as much apart of disintegrating the church as like the heathen.
The church is being dissected with no regard or respect for God. God is not messy but more and more I see that the church is a tool not for the Truth but more and more churches today are conforming without a prophetic backbone. God’s house is built on his words. WHERE IS THE PROPHETIC SPINE IN THE CHURCH? I would be the first to ask?
I already know…when you have to bring awareness , speak the truth and be the truth… Chances are you will be “abandoned” by those who are supposed to have your back. Churches are more segregated inside as well as the outside.
Have you noticed that satan are forming more gangs and using spiritual connotations to whip people down not in SPIRITUAL shape. The church is obese on a whole lot of nothing. If God is in every church in Chicago… by now Chicago should the be capital of wining the war on gangs, violence, poverty and few other things.
Of course people go to the best side in which they believe is better living or is it? Have you not seen our most educated writing books from jail cells? Go there! There are special labels for people who are educated, that travels murky waters…. and they are undercurrent criminals… It’s easy to identify stereotypically comments with people ” the church” to believe is the less fortunate.
I beg the differ… The less fortunate are the people who know better but use God as a means of keeping people in their hip pocket so that they can look good! We can seem to burst the myths of they “believe” preachers are crooks… Lately appears to be that way every day!
If you are in any kind of leadership situations you should definitely have a general idea about speaking up and standing up…the truth is never popular. Many like to say they are “keeping” it real… They aren’t! As you know as much as many “claim” to be on the front the lines for curbing sin more but more or less instigating sin.
What do I mean?…
It’s quite difficult when you are saying one thing and living another. People honestly pay attention to see exactly how far your “Jesus Button” will go and waiting for you to show your true spots! Being a Christian doesn’t mean we are perfect but there should be a level of true accountability and a lot of transparency! In which I know the church don’t practice. Many quote scriptures and ignore what they have to do, and justify sin in a heartbeat! I totally agree… who really knows what another human being does behind closed doors? Yet, on the other hand… there still should be a difference in your stance and it’s not faking ! We will “All” have personal struggles until we die…but don’t front!
I am speaking about today is when we see the integrity and character of the church being compromised and desecrated with worldliness… right in our faces .
Even if we are not being correct… Do not make the church into a place of being a place of dishonesty. The church should still represent a strong pillar for THE TRUTH… and not tampered with. Out of all the places in this whole universe… God designed the church with better insight on what the 21st Century is representing today. People are doing all kinds of things in the name of God! What happened to the value system that we are supposed to be so morally compassed by?
I see too much to dumb down . Its time for us to demand more and I could care less if the Feds start dissimulation all the fraudulent places of worship. What are you going to do to stop financing the ignorance? Demand more responsible leaders and staffing . I ask that you seek more from your spiritual leader…whether he or she has the finest degree or the biggest car and material wealth doesn’t mean they know God!
Prophetically the report card of where the church was going is recorded in the Book of Revelation. And many time many interpret that you can have many variations of what the church might look like in this day. However, the spirits can be collectively or combined. We are living in the last days when “men” are lovers of themselves… and have three more on the side! We cannot build stronger churches on messy materials. Do we have to wonder what happened to the dynamics of the family when the church has been so assimilated with man-made doctrine and personal opinions! Ignorance without serious process will eliminate progression.
Some of the churches today are conforming to the world way of handling God’s business and it’s not working… Why would the people admit it’s not working when they have this many churches on one block with no hard press or power. What dominion or authority when you don’t know the power you possess without doing things with the world in mind?
You must ask yourselves… and make honest assessment about who, what and why you affiliate or tamper with things that hinders your growth… spiritually, mentally, and or physically! What is your sincere purpose when you are in church? Is it to impress God or man?
What profits a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?
