Why is the gospel Vanishing in the church today? One reason are happy talk sermons. Pastors don’t want to offend anyone so they preach a non-offensive gospel or something you might get in elementary school. Something that tickles the ears instead of convicting the heart. Pastors feel that if they preach hard messages people will leave their Church. Did you get that? Their Church? It’s never been their church; it’s the Church of God. How many Ministries put their name on the ministry? We have Benny Hinn Ministries, Mike Murdock Ministries, the Jim Bakker Show, and Rick Joyner Ministries. We have ministers that call themselves Reverend when Psalms tells us holy and Reverend is His name. God is the only one that can be called reverend. In Matthew 23 it says to call no man on Earth your father. How would the Catholics handle that one? Or to call no one on earth rabbi. What about Rabbi Jonathan Cahn? It goes on and on. They either preach themselves or Happy Talk messages. The gospel is also Vanishing in Pentecostal churches because of extra biblical revelation. In those churches you hear pastors continually say, God told me this or that but if it doesn’t line up with scripture it doesn’t mean a thing. Most times what they say doesn’t line up with scripture. So there are a lot of reasons why the church is Vanishing along with the gospel. The Bible admonishes us to preach the word. For the time will come, and has, when they will not endure sound Doctrine because they have itching ears, they will Heap up for themselves teachers that will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to Fables. The gospel then metamorphs into Aesop’s Fables or whatever Pastor puts his name before it. Remember the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword piercing even to the division of Soul and Spirit and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Preach the word!
