Youth Want Raw Truth

Recently, I read an article from Charisma News that addressed the need for sound doctrine in our churches. It highlighted the failure of the modern church to impact the lives of the young by emphasizing the importance of reliance on the leading of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

The Apostle Paul was very much concerned about false teachers infiltrating the church that he admonished the Galatians against false leaders. This is what he had to say, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Gal. 1:8). Pretty strong, isn't it? But it's the truth!

Here is an excerpt from the article. I just received a disturbing report of two young pastors who, in their attempts to reach more youth and college age students, are toning down on all things Holy Ghost related. How can you possibly call yourself a New Testament church pastor and come to this conclusion? From where does this persuasion come from?

Unfortunately, this has become a disturbing trend across the country in many churches. Church worship resembles a rock concert performance (honestly, even Charismatics and Pentecostals know so little about true worship). Singers and musicians are like celebrities. Some of them even lead gay lifestyles and nothing is ever said.

Robotic predictable services are the norm. Being nice to everyone and tolerant of anyone living a sinful lifestyle is promoted. This is now the pop culture of a multitude of churches.
One honest question: What happens when youth discover the real Jesus, the real gospel, and the raw power of God? Let me inform you now before it all comes down. There will be a mass exodus from these apostate churches.

Any church that has left New Testament Christianity, which hinges on the demonstration of the Spirit and power of God, is apostate. Any church that has left the wisdom of God and put their faith in the wisdom and philosophies of men is a traitor to the highest cause.

Pastors, it is high time to openly preach the entire message of Jesus Christ, including the cross, the blood of Jesus, and hell. Youth want raw truth. They know they need something eternal that will never fade away. They want rock-solid ground to stand on, not fantasy-land sinking sand. Read the full article here from the Charisma News…

Jesus said, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit” (Matt. 15:13-14 ESV).
