No-Sin Churches: Perfect for the times in which we live.
Churches offer special “no-sin” special services for Christmas – Anointed with oil and blessed without repentance?!?
“Part of it is a recognition that both the culture and even the church, at this time of year, can tend to completely overlook suffering. Everybody is supposed to be cheery and happy and all of that, and yet that isn’t the case for some people.”
Completely overlooked at the services: what the Bible says is the cause of suffering in a lost and dying world: sin.
Is it heartless to point this out?
“There was no sermon, instead it was a mix of scripture with healing words, quiet songs, prayers and the lighting of eight candles, each on behalf of particular struggles: Pain and illness, financial problems, broken families, addiction.”
A different kind of Christmas service offering a different kind of gospel: a gospel devised by men, which can offer nothing but a temporary relief. Sad–and indicative of the times in which we live.
It’s like having a cure for cancer and offering a cancer patient a shot of whiskey instead.
THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
