The church is in trouble—that’s what they say anyways. The problem is most of what they call the church is not the church, and the church is not quite as in trouble as everybody thinks. As a matter of fact, the church today is absolutely beautiful—she’s glorious, she’s humble, she’s broken, and she’s confessing her sin. The problem is what everybody’s calling the church today isn’t the church. Basically, by and large, what’s called the church today is nothing more than a bunch of unconverted church people with unconverted pastors.

About Greg Coleman
I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.

Sadly, too true…. not only in America, even on “typical” missions fields like Indonesia.
…re-blogged it, thanks a lot for the quote
Reblogged this on My Delight and My Counsellors.
Sad but true . . . nothing more than a religious social club . . . but praise God, there are still Churches who exalt the Lord Jesus and who reach out to the community with His love, mercy and grace and His message of repentance and faith.
