Pastors majoring over the minors and minoring over the majors

Gee,,,sometimes pastors to my sadness

Are more acquainted with the social movements and their “scriptures”and their “ prophets,apostles “than the very word of God….or quoting from them above more than Gods word…

Instead of the light of scriptures revealing and interpreting in their light they are not like the magi that interpreted the stars by God’s revelation to Christ:

Matthew 2:2

saying, “Where is he who has been born lking of the Jews? For we saw mhis star when it rose2 and have come to nworship him.”

Rather they let human wisdom and speculations interpret the scriptures

We should be like Christ judging believers work at the white throne

1 Corinthians 3:10-15 New International Version (NIV)

10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.

judging human wisdom and speculations by the light of scriptures and rejecting what scriptures blesses and rejecting what scriptures condemns…

Yes nowadays it’s not only pastors,but teachers and us:

Over-emphasize under-emphasizing

Majors over minors

Minors over majors

Remember every christain we put on our Pedestal have…

I love Tim Keller

I love his preaching

I love his heart for our city and cities of the world

I love his books

I love CS Lewis,Calvinism,reformed faith,John Macarther, etc

You too have put people,theologies ,events  etc unto pedestals

Sometimes they becomes our idols

Paper popes they wrote it said it it most be true

A garden of eden perfect to live in

Then boom Reality hits us

Our heros 

Our shangrai la

Fail us

Many often say see Christianity is a sham

I will leave the faith

Many sadly do because they have placed their faith in a man or his creation 

I speak as well from personal experience (yet not I but Christ has a firm grasp of me in His nail scares hands)

As their Christ…their savior
Not on the Real Christ 

Both God and perfect man

Who alone will NEVER disappoint

 let us down

For Him their is no sin no imperfection

He never changes

He is the same,yesterday and tomorrow

And this must be the Lord and Savior 

We all must hold

 unto…

And of course admire those people,church leaders christians 

And natuarally our hearts will put them on pedestals 

Yet let us pound into our hearts and minds 

Daily 

Perpetually 

24-7

Every second

Every minute 

Every day 

Every month

Every year

The admonition

The implications 

Of the apostles,

The prophets 

Look at us 

We are not God’s

We are men like you

With sinful hearts

With sinful minds

And of course FEET OF CLAY

The only ONE worthy to sit upon the thrones of our

Hearts 

Minds

Lives 

Is God and God alone

And all those we admire 

Events

Places

Movements

We think and have become our xerox copies

Shadows of paradise lost

Can sit at thefoot of the steps leading to His heavenly eternal infinite throne…….

I am glad and relieved part 2

I am glad and relieved That Christ clinic does not operate

By first come first service

Appointments

Or a mass human meat market that limits the service to patients one to one time with the physician

He see us immediately and his first question to you is not do you have insurance

But I know how you feel…..

I will help you…

He gives us the amount of time for proper diagnose and treatment…
And followups to maintain our spiritual health…

I am both glad and relieved

You do not need a medical referral from

your health insurance(or your specialist asks for a pre payment to diagnose and treat you) to see Christ the ulitimate specialist in the physical,mental,emotional and spiritual and thus the only one who can truly cure souls perfectly and permanently…

 

I thought

I thought I had found a church in the heightsWhere the norm was solid biblical teaching and preaching

Not biblical teaching and preaching with one breath and with the other nullify it
I thought I had found a church in the heights

Where my God given talents I can share with my church and 

community in the heights

A new iPad I consecrated just to use as I prepared lessons and prepared for them

Yet in the long run It was all a mirage
I thought I had found a church in the heights

Where my kids can grow up in two cultures

One their country of birth 

The other the countries of their family

Rather than be assimilated into the American Borg collective
Instead with the death of the church in the heights

I am reminded of the burned over district in upstate NY

where preachers came and left

Leaving people more hardened more naive more Leery of the biblical faith

Saying the next time someone says how much they love

How much concern they have for the heights

They think yeah right 
I wished the church planter instead of sending a social media text

I wished he would’ve told me face to face like a good shepherd of his decision

I wished he would not have used social media to voice his decision invisible interaction

Non relational human contact

Showing his concept of family stopped by the church doors exit

A testimony for the non existent strings of family or friendship on social media

Pius excuses dressing up getting paid and career choice
Masquerading as God’s calling 

Sending us a closing out notice

But inviting us to visit others in the chain not closing

Rather than physically leading his former sheep to the promised land

I wished he would’ve instead of killing the church in the heights

Left it behind intact with one or more leaders to rally around

And in time get a good shepherd to led the church of the heights to be the city on the hill

The salt of the earth in a Hispanic community that really needs it
Instead with the death of the church in the heights

I am left feeling depressed sad and hopeless and homeless without a church

Waiting for God to answer

Waiting to make lemonade out of these bitter lemons 

And raise a church in the heights

Not in dreams,words,promises

But in reality………
