3 stooges

Amos 8:11-12

English Standard Version (ESV)

11 “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord God,
“when I will send a famine on the land—
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,
and from north to east;
they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the Lord,
but they shall not find it.

 

IS IT ALREADY HERE?

 

 

THAT’S THE QUESTION, SOME WOULD ARGUE THAT IT IS, THAT THE MAJORITY OF CHURCHES ARE ALL FLUFF AND NO SUBSTANCE; ALL SMOKE AND NO FIRE. MAYBE SOME OTHERS WOULD SAY EVERYTHING IS FINE, AND OF COURSE YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THOSE IN THE MIDDLE THAT SAY; “IT’S REALLY HALF AND HALF”.

 

 

THE PROBLEM IS THIS, IF THE VERSE ABOVE IS ACCURATE FOR TODAY, THEN MOST WILL NEVER KNOW AND WOULDN’T BELIEVE YOU ANYHOW.

 

 

I GUESS THE MOST TELLING QUESTION WOULD BE; WHY DO YOU GO TO CHURCH? IF YOU SAY IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER, I GUESS THAT WOULD BE A WRONG ANSWER, HABIT, NOPE, WORSHIP, NO AGAIN.

 

BUT IF YOU WERE TO SAY THAT YOUR CHURCH DELIVERS THE WORD OF GOD, ACCURATELY AND CORRECTLY, YOU ARE DEAD ON.

 

 

BUT AGAIN, HOW WOULD YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE GOING FOR THE WRONG REASON, AND IT’S A SPIRITUAL PROBLEM NOT AN INTELLECTUAL PROBLEM.

 

 

WOW, I CAN SEE THIS GOING IN CIRCLES FOR EVER.  I’M GETTING A HEADACHE JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

 

 

OH YEAH, I GO FOR THE FELLOWSHIP, WRONG AGAIN, OK, I GIVE UP

 

 

WHY DO YOU GO TO CHURCH, OR WHY DON’T YOU?

 

 

INSTEAD OF CHURCH HOPPING FROM ONE CHURCH TO ANOTHER, PRAY ABOUT IT, THEN GO TO ONE CHURCH WITH THE IDEA OF STAYING THERE AT LEAST 4 MONTHS. NEVER MISS A SERVICE AND THEN DECIDE. BUT WAIT, YOU CAN’T LEAVE UNLESS YOU TALK TO THE PASTOR AND YOU’VE MADE AT LEAST 4 NEW FRIENDS THERE.
