What Does Obedience Have to Do with Discipleship?

Everything.  We spent the past few weeks walking through a series on “blind spots”, each of which qualify as disobedience.  As we discussed, the Church in America today largely ignores or allows others to assume its God-given responsibilities to care for persecuted brothers and sistersorphanswidows and the poor.  The vision of church leaders became obstructed not unwittingly, but despite countless biblical examples and commands by Jesus to live Prayer,

The Evaporation of Evangelism & Dearth of Discipleship

The 5th and final “blind spot” in this series is also the most concerning.  Over these past few weeks, we’ve unpacked the reasons why churches have developed “blind spots”, largely ignoring their God-given responsibilities to care for persecuted brothers and sisters, orphans, widows and the poor.  Yet our modern-day redefinitions of “church” and its intended “customer” have obstructed the vision of most pastors and churchgoers to two other,

Compassion and Evangelism are Inseparable

Jesus discipled the lost, healed the sick and fed the hungry.  Jesus demonstrated His love before telling people who He is.  Without the works, He knew people wouldn’t listen to His words.  Jesus not only modeled the importance of caring for the helpless and hopeless, but He and His disciples regularly touted that as the first step toward living out – and even proving – our faith:

Jesus Cares More about Widows and Single Moms than Your Church Does

No founder, leader or prophet of any other major world religion loves and values women as much as Jesus does.  Throughout His ministry, He demonstrated His heart for widows and mothers…

  • Defended Them – “They (religious leaders) devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.” (Mark 12:40)
  • Praised Them – “Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, ‘Truly I tell you,

The Children’s Ministry Doesn’t Replace Ministry to Children

Churches see youth who enter the building as their responsibility, but pay little attention to neglected children in the community.  Scriptures are clear that “religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress” (James 1:27).  Jesus healed kids, fed kids, raised kids from the dead, blessed them, prayed for them, welcomed them and repeatedly emphasized that adults should be more like them (Mark 10:15).

Why U.S. Churches Turn a Blind Eye to Persecuted Christians

Today we begin examining blind spots obstructing the view of churches to responsibilities clearly spelled out in scriptures.  Pastors and members alike gloss over selected verses, not seeing problems outside the church as their responsibility.  Instead, a topic Jesus and Paul considered among the foremost indicators of our faith and salvation – our love for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ – is almost completely ignored by nearly all churches in America.
