So tired of looking around and seeking all this seeker friendly/spiritual formation stuff. I think it’s much like the cults…mormons/JW’s and others only they have walked right into previously decent churches that once did preach the gospel correctly. However, error was likely there before in small ways. Then there were weaknesses highlighted. People wanted to do better, bought into some lies, and then time passed. Slowly, slowly, these false teachers have taken over. Our desire for good feelings in church has pushed many to just swallow and follow. Ugh. I know I did it. If I had any inkling there was something wrong I just swatted it away. So now, we’ve got real problems all over. The foundations have shifted and we’re not seeing Christ in the church buildings, we’re seeing falsehood. We forgot our first love and now compromised. I say we because, well, I was once in this type of church.
Still, though I know how easy it is to be a party to all of this mess, I am sick and tired of it.
