How Low Can We Go?

March 10, 2013

It appears it is a done deal. Our government wants to pass the bill for “people to carry guns to church”. Why would a person need a gun at church? God told Moses to “pull off his shoes because the ground was Holy Ground”. If God did not permit Moses to contaminate the Holy Ground with shoes, why would we allow people to bring guns upon Holy ground?
Have we gotten that far away from God? Our mayor has sold us by adding another tax burden with the addition of a new dome. One church is engaging or considering the fact about selling the church building so the “new dome” would have enough land. What about the senior citizens that grew up, got saved got baptized or got married in that building? What about the members that don’t have transportation to drive to another location to attend church? What about the community? Have anyone consulted God about moving this building? There are plenty land available around the Atlanta area without destroying church buildings. There are acres down Interstate 85 South around the Newman community.
Are we more interested in a new dome or new-comers to Christ? The building should serve as a “cornerstone and a rock” to the community. If a member needs to go to the building to pray or meet God there, where would they go? Have we become so greedy and selfish, that we are willing to trade souls for the profit of a new dome? Jesus said unto Peter: “Upon this rock, I will build my church (not dome) and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it”.
Every question we have, have already been answered in the Bible.
And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. (Exodus 3:5).
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1Timothy 6:10).
And there came a traveler unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him. (2 Samuel 12:4)
Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 23:2)
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matt. 16:26)
