Hopefully this media add will work.  It is a long clip, over an hour.  It ties world events, spirtual leaders, and current movements in the church together to show what direction we’re all likely headed in.  Constance Cumby has been observing the New Age movement for years.

As the modern church continues it’s transformation into a “new” church, as it tries to bring in seekers, and as it makes itself pretty for the culture I want one thing for me and my house.  I want us to serve the Lord.  I want us, starting in my own life…to be Holy.  I would like to be set apart by God.  I am looking and can see issues in my own church, can see a shift that’s been coming.  I can judge…without seeking change in myself to be someone God wants me to be.  I believe I have to hit the Book hard, hit my knees hard, and seek my God.  I need to follow Jesus, the Lord and Savior.  I need to pray to repent of my own failings.  Then I have to pray for my church and decide what to do next. 

 

Lord, teach me to pray what you would have me to pray in the way you would have me pray.  Teach me to act and think as you would have me act and think.  Teach me to follow, and teach me to lead.  Forgive me for my compromises, I need to repent of all I’ve done to drag down your church, your message.  Help me to have discernment, and to know your word well enough to know when something is not right in the pulpit…and in our church.  Help me and my family to be united in the purpose of doing your will in this situation.  Help others in my church who see a problem to first look to You and to repent of their own sins.  Then, help them to seek your Word, to pray and seek Your will as to what action You would have them to take.  I pray our church repent and turn to You.  Open the eyes and ears of our members and our leadership, and help them to realize where we have gone wrong.  Help us to turn our hearts back to the Father through Jesus Christ.  Convict us with your Holy Spirit, and challenge us to teach the true Gospel, challenge us to follow the One true God in three persons.  Challenge us to not accept false doctrines and new age practices.  Teach us to speak the truth in love, no matter how hard it might be. 

Help us to be Holy.
