"God's transforming power is not and never has been dependent upon the toys, games and schemes of people acting in stealth. No one will be tricked into the Kingdom of Heaven by being lured into a church group or fellowship through a flattery and bribery called "love;" but many WILL be tricked into believing they are saved simply because well-meaning people tell them what they want to hear rather than what they need to hear from the Word of God."

-Paul Proctor


Why are so many churches falling for these techniques? Are people really getting saved? These trends seems to be on the increase as pastors and church leaders desire to have their churches grow and grow and grow but are they filling their churches with true believers?

Silly me, but I thought Jesus used these 'parables' to 'lure people in' as you say...

If using stories to convey truth rather than proclaiming a formulaic sort of truth is wrong, perhaps we should follow someone else.

Comment approval is so lame! You suck!

If you want to have a one sided conversation, just find a mirror!
