Five Types Of Church You Must Avoid In 2020 If You Don’t Want to End Up In Hell.
1. Club-Like Church
In such Churches, social activities have taken the place of Sunday school teachings, prayers, rooted sermons and thereby have lost focus on what the body of Christ should be. Most Churches today are been based on (Miracle performance, Deliverance, and Breakthroughs), all these are good though. but when the teaching of God’s word becomes scarce in any Church, people are bound to be misled. Songs sang in such churches and clothes they put on have almost no different from that of the Clubs.
2. Church That Teaches Wrong Doctrines
Wrong doctrine may lead someone to quoting the scriptures wrongly. It’s important to receive the messages that you hear in a church with eagerness, but it is also vital to examine the Scriptures yourself to see if what was spoken was biblically true or not (Acts 17:11).
3. Church That Has Lost Its First Love
The primary role of any Church is to help you grow and strengthen your faith. It has now become nearly impossible for Churches and its leadership to focused on helping members of the church draw closer to God. Churches today have lost their first love. Politics has become the business of the day in the church instead of sharing God’s love. Gaining numbers in money and attendance becomes a prime concern. You must Run from this type of Church.
4. Churches That Never Convicts You of Sin
There are quite a number of Christians who have no conscience, they don’t know when they are wrong or right, everything they do seems good to them. When the word of God is preached, you should feel uncomfortable at times. We all fall short of where we should be. Remember in the bible that Nathan the prophet convicts King David of sin; (2 Samuel 12).
We all need a Nathan in our lives to show us Sin that we either don’t see or have pushed down so we can avoid it. Anytime the word of God is preached, it should be able to point out the times when we’ve acted wrongly.
5. Churches That Do Not Preach the Death And Resurrection Of Jesus:
God’s only son came to earth purposely to die on the cross for the sin of men, in other to redeem men back to there root. But as it is today, there are Churches that do not believe the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. After Jesus’ crucifixion, he was laid in the dark tomb. but three days later, both the cross and the tomb were empty. The Resurrection is pivotal to all Christian faith; if Jesus didn’t rise again, we might as well bulldoze all the churches because preaching and faith would be useless. Check Mathew 28:1-20 in your bible.
Avoid these churches in the year ahead. Relate back to the bible to affirm any kind of teaching. Let the bible be your center reference.
