Motar of Ignorance and Non-Commitment

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord [is] gracious. To whom coming, [as unto] a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, [and] precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe [he is] precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, [even to them] which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:1-10

Government demolishes church in Malaysia.. ASSIST News Service

This article was posted on Journal Chretien on 06.20.2007 and speaks to the persecution that our brothers and sisters live in the midst of everyday.

The article quotes the Salem Voice Ministries News Service as saying…..

“This is the latest in a string of incidents involving the demolition of places of worship of religious minorities in Malaysia. It goes without saying that this is a worrying trend despite public outcry, there seems to be no indication that this will end anytime soon.”

In America we see a similar demise, churches are crumbling before our very eyes, yet there is little or no outcry, and there seems to be no indication that this will end anytime soon. The demolishment of the church in America is not the work of the bulldozer, but the enemy of the cross. That same crafty serpent that spawned the first lie in the garden and has been evidenced as the father of lies every since. He faithfully works his wiles while chiseling away at the living stones that make up the spiritual house. Unlike the bulldozer his demolition is not with loud noise and fan fair, yet just as effective.

With a body that is ignorant of the Word of God and fuels little or no commitment to her Lord that gave His all the she might have life and have it abundantly, the church in America is fruitless and literally drying up on the vine. A church with no power nor testimony, to which condemnation without measure.

Pray for our brothers and sisters that are living in the midst of persecution for their faith in Christ and pray for the Church in America, that we would find a faith worth being persecuted for.
