A pithy saying some of us have heard and been using for a while, but sadly, it holds truth.
Today we have to highlight two flagship organizations that have recently moved away from the gospel tenant of being “in the world and not of it,” to something more like, “following Jesus is hard, let’s do what the world is doing instead.”
Salvation Army took a HUGE hit this Christmas season in donations and volunteers largely because they chose to follow the anti-Christian Critical Race Theory crowd down the rabbit hole. And they paid the price for it.
Focus on the Family, in a different strain, has decided to enforce the Biden Administrations unconstitutional and unconscionable medical mandate on all of it’s employees potentially affecting the lively hood of dozens of their own families, not to mention capitulating to an overreaching governmental demand.
We will look at both of these in today’s show.
You may be asking, “Why does this matter?”
I am just a regular church goer and I don’t contribute to either of these organizations. What harm does it do?
That is the slippery slope. Once a ‘ministry’ goes down this path, it becomes easier for others to join. Also, it creates positive peer pressure for ministries to follow. So what is the end result?
We must keep the foundation plain – Do you believe Jesus is the center of the Gospel?
Do you believe anything added to this gospel is no longer the gospel?
If this is so, then you must:
- Strengthen your own conscience – What YOU believe
- Pay attention where people and organizations do not follow Biblical truth – What the world WANTS you to believe.
