One of the saddest comments that is heard, even today, is by people who do not trust the church because its ‘leaders live by a double standard’, or ‘all they want is my money’, or ‘they are just as immoral as the rest of the world’.
In the next few blogs, I want to review Paul’s standard and position on each of these issues that often ‘put off’ persons from being attracted to Christ. Remember, we must not be trying to attract people to a building, but Christ. Shame on us if we are using gimmicks to get people to listen to some famous speaker, or dare I say, a performance that exalts the talents of people.
Our sole purpose for all we do as Christians and the church is that we attract people to Jesus and His saving power! Anything we do that does not exalt and glorify Christ as Savor and Head of the Church should never be done! That means, all we do, all we say, has Christ at the center, NOT OURSELVES!
In preparation for this mini-series, please read 2 Corinthians 10 and 11.
