SATAN'S TIPS FOR MINISTRY SUCCESS!!!

  1. Just preach God's love; don't mention His sovereignty or His judgment of sin.
  2. Amuse. Use jokes and plenty of music, especially christian rock! Don't go deep into the word of God.
  3. Don't preach separation from the world and its pleasures.
  4. Don't preach holiness; God knows our weaknesses. We can't be just like Him.
  5. Don't preach Bible prophecy; the return of Christ and coming judgment. It frightens people.
  6. Preach that there's a large revival just around the corner here in our nation and around the world (although the Bible clearly teaches the opposite).
  7. Don't preach sound doctrine. Major instead on emotional experiences, spiritual "highs," and feelings.
  8. Don't teach the Genesis record of creation. Educated people won't accept that.
  9. Don't press for Bible study or prayer meetings; instead give them plenty of fun and entertainment.
  10. Don't teach the Lordship of Christ; that's taking things entirely too far.
  11. Don't talk about the blood of Christ, repentence, or santification.
  12. Teach them that all denominations and religions are heading down the same road to Heaven.

Bro Jim you hit that right on the head. That is the church in a nutshell today. Satan has done a great job of getting people's minds off the cross, sin, hell, death. Appreciate the thought this morning.

Bro Jim,

Thanks for another great post. Too many churches are falling for this type of preaching.
I have never attended Antioch Baptist Church. I go to Mount Pisgah Baptist Church in Oliver Springs.

Thanks,
Rod

Bro. Tim and Bro. Rod,

It's sad that the number of churches falling for this is growing each and every day.... someone needs to stand for the truth!!!

Bro. Rod,

I have heard of Oliver Springs, but I have never been there....
