How Big is Our God?

Christians across the globe, but particularly here in America, struggle to avoid mixing a few sprinkles of performance into their personal perception and practice of faith.  Even within our churches, Americans can’t help but recognize the size of the buildings, the charisma of leaders, the number of attenders, and the generosity of members.  Does our consciousness of human performance have any effect on how believers (and non-believers) in our nation view God?

Hard to See Jesus Through Brick Walls

Prerequisites for establishing and sustaining a church today, assuming we adopt the Americanized definition of “church” around a place and pastors, include:

  • Reputable leadership
  • Hard working staff
  • Generous members
  • Relevant activities and programs
  • A temporary or permanent location

Optional features not required by America’s model for “church” and rarely observed these days, yet essential to the ministry of Jesus and life of the early church,

Our “Goodness” Obscures Christ’s Righteousness

The resurgence of wage-based thinking in America’s churches substitutes man’s “goodness” for Christ’s goodness.  Isaiah 64:6 says that our religious acts are “filthy rags” compared to the righteousness of Christ.  However, survival of a (location-based, Americanized) church in a nation seeing rapid declines in church attendance and giving tempts leaders to reverse those trends by invoking a works-oriented mentality (which Jesus came to destroy).  Most churches today characterize investments of time,

The Revival of Wage-Based Christianity

Every human being that has ever lived has made a life or death wager – on God or on man.  It’s not just atheists who bet on humanity.  Most who believe there is a creator, a higher being or even multiple gods put their money on mankind.  Every path to life after death ever conceived in world history gambles that people have some say in their eternal destiny.  Only Christianity,

How to Witness in Today’s World

Christians today face the challenge of sharing truth (with grace) in a society betting the ranch on its humanistic redefinitions of Truth, Justice, Identity and Morality – definitions that run directly counter to the Lord’s original intent for those terms:

  • Truth – Human intellect (e.g. science)
  • Justice – Human rights (e.g. social justice)
  • Identity – Self-actualization (e.g. fulfillment)
  • Morality – Self-righteousness (e.g. moral superiority)

John 14:1 says that Jesus was “full of grace and truth”.

Is it Possible to Like Jesus?

Muslims think Jesus is a great prophet, but that’s all.  Spiritual types believe all roads, including Jesus, lead to God.  Cultural Christians go to church occasionally but never surrender their lives to Him.  Public schools tolerate Christians as long as they never audibly utter the name of Jesus.  A Barna Group study found that 47 percent of Christian Millennials agree “it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith.”

It would seem that many people like Jesus but don’t love Him.
