In today's world where Churches want or continue to save the lost for Jesus Christ, in these last one or two decades saw the appearance of Rick Warren of Purpose driven church (Saddleback church), Joel Osteen of Lakewood church probably two main examples of American mega churches, the worldwide television network of Trinity Broadcasting Network which started in 1974 (?). With this came also Paul Washer of Heartcry Ministries disagreeing with the ways of Warren and Osteen.
But let us make an independent look at our churches today and what is being preached in the pulpit today and religious broadcast today. Do we hear the teachings of Jesus , Paul, John about heaven , righteousness, faith, sin, grace, reward, judgment, hell ?
Are we altering God's message to attract unbelievers or unchurched by emphasizing love, prosperity, favor and be less threatening to people ? Are we altering God's message to retain regular church attenders ?
The Bible teach that we should remove the plank or the beam that is in our eyes before we can remove the mote in our brother's eyes. Looking at myself I can see my own unworthiness, so i can not cast stone but I can suggest to examine ourselves.
Are the churches being soft or our ears itching for those messages ?
