  • Small Town Megachurch : The prophecies of the social purification.

    I think is important to remember, that Christianity is a worship based in the poverty of spirit, in those who mourn, in humbleness, hunger of righteousness, in mercy... in peace.

    Someone can be disenchanted with its small town church but well yes, your are somehow right, who is going to provide philosophical, operational and theological integrity to govern you... I'm sure the Word will, check what it says Matthew 5:3-9

    Yours is the kindom of heaven... for you poverty of spirit

    You will be comforted... for your mourn

    You will inherit the earth... for being meek

    Your anger of justice will be filled... for your patience

    Your will be show mercy (about any bad things you have done)... for being merciful

    You will see God... for the purity of your heart

    You will be called son of God, like Christ... for being peacemaker.

    So if you are too small and persecuted, and they say evil against you, basically being a humble church makes you the light of the world and salt of the earth (Mat 5:13-14) and you inspire others to look for praise our Father in heaven (Mat 5:16)... yes, not many of them though but... it suppose to be few people in a real blessed small town Church (Mat 22:14)

    You will get all that only because you stand those pancake fundraisers so many times... I think is a good covenant, Don't you think?

    But now if you really wanted to try something different, I can NOT recommend you to do it but... you may want to review the book in the title of this note... this is what I think about those temptations:

    Small Town Megachurch

    (Book of Gary W. Carter) Had been long time since since last time I read such amount of megalomaniac delusions and antichrist philosophy since Mein Kampf. World Leadership, national reconstruction, God reigning through a designed group, God-sized vision, devil blocking or robbing "blessings", strike forces "like a American Navy aircraft carrier", use violence to make leaders to "reconsider" social policies... with just a casual mention of the need of "healthy society" among annually increased immigration... and the best -Religious and Social Controlled Towns- Great!! exactly what the society needs right now... more extremist groups. I just hope the guys in Churches like this don't start using black shirts soon. Very ad hoc for the season.

    At least you will learn how far of God those Mega-churches are and how anti-Christian is what the teach. And you will learn how true is what Jesus said:

    "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Matt 19:24

    God bless you Daniel.
