Wise Words for Today

We have stopped confronting sin and helping the lost, exchanging them for comfortable conversations and happy moments, all in the name of not offending. From feel-good sermons to give-and-get messages, today’s pulpits look more like the set of Dr. Phil than the resting place for the weary. We focus soley on individual achievement and happiness – never mind the sick, the lost, the unchurched. We wind up hoping they find our building through the MapQuest link on the church Web site. We gather in circles and pray, “Bring them, Lord,” without ever realizing that we can just go get ’em.
