A World Filled With Religious But Lost People

Not everyone that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name have cast out devils? And in your name done many works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
— Matthew 7: 21-23

In yesterday’s mini sermon I said that many churches are filled with religious but lost people. They know how to sing, preach, use Jesus name, pray, shout, dance, etc but they are far from the TRUTH, religious but lost. Jesus said the same thing I’m saying so don’t get mad at me.

Take for example the 3rd Baptist Church in San Francisco. The famous pastor, Amos Brown is leading his congregation in hate and bad theology. They support gay marriage and Amos Brown signed the NAACP document supporting gay marriage. He invited Colin Kaepernick, a lost and converting muslim to speak to his church last Sunday morning. Colin Kaepernick not only disrespects this nation but supports Fidel Castro’s communist government as does his muslim girlfriend. Hey Amos Brown, read 2 Corinthians 6:14, “What fellowship hath light with darkness.” The word fellowship means joint participation toward a common goal. Amos Brown, you have missed the mark. How dare you ask an unbeliever to speak to your congregation on a Sunday morning or any other time. You are a hypocrite. Kaepernick didn’t even show up!

The 3rd Baptist Church is a predominant black church that has a racist history. I would consider Brown a activist but far from a pastor. He is noted for being a great orator and intellectual but that doesn’t make you a pastor or a Christian. Brown is like the KKK when they used the pulpit and church to promote their sickening propaganda and hate. Brown reminds me of Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s former pastor. Remember Wright preached for God to damn America rather than to bless America. Does that sound like a Christian seeking REVIVAL?

I have several friends who are members of CAAP. A pastor from the CAAP (Coalition of African-American Pastors) said he believes that many African-American churches are filled with religious but lost people. He blames activist like Brown who dress up as pastors for deceiving millions of African Americans. The CAAP pastor says the wolves in sheep clothing are more about civil rights than reaching the lost. And, their message is more racial rhetoric than true Bible preaching. The CAAP pastor also points out that a great majority of predominant black churches are following this trend. Then he says, “They had rather lead a BLM protest than to preach the LOVE OF CHRIST. They had rather spew out hate than to preach love” Wow! The first church of Jerusalem was persecuted beyond measure but they didn’t go around preaching social injustices, what has happened to the greatest virtue called LOVE?

Then there are the predominant white, hispanic, asian, indian, etc churches filled with religious but lost people. They sing their songs, listen to sermons, and have a multitude of PROGRAMS! Many of these churches are so PROGRAMMED that there is no room for the Holy Spirit to work! They are the Laodiceans, the lukewarm who make Jesus sick!. Many of these churches are run like a worldly business rather than like a church where Christ is the Head! They put more money in buildings than they do in souls. You better not take their parking place or sit in their seat or you are toast! The pastor’s preach ear tickling sermons so not to offend anyone. They have so many committees. They even have a committee for a committee! They have more JUNK going on in the church than JESUS!

As I’ve said many times. I can make the Bible say anything I want but it doesn’t mean it’s correct. Churches have more false doctrine today than probably any other time in its history. Why? Lost but religious pastors and people. “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name……” What did Jesus say to those who said that? “Depart from me ye workers of iniquity, I never knew you.” Preachers who preached in Jesus name, worked miracles and did many wonderful works according to them. They were religious but lost!

God bless the Churches and Pastors who continue to abide in Christ and His Word even though it may not be popular. Thank God for preachers who still preach the Word in season and out of season, whether it’s popular or unpopular. God bless the CAAP as they stay true to the Word and point out the hypocrites. God bless the Christians who continue to say yes to Christ and no to the Culture! God Bless!
