New Mexico and Minnesota and all of America is living proof of George Barna’s research: Just 4% of Americans have a Biblical Worldview and just 37% of Pastors have a Biblical Worldview. This is reflected by the state of affairs here! One of the top reasons Sharon and I get when we are out on the streets from people as to why the do not go to Church: “The Church does not doing anything for me, it is no longer effective in our country.”
Billy Graham puts it this way:
Down deep, men and women want peace in their souls and will desperately try everything except Almighty God. Why? Human nature rebels against humbling itself before the One who came to save lost souls. Many people search for fulfillment while ignoring God. Some will spend a lifetime searching for something, never willing to acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ who said, “Search the Scriptures … which testify of Me” (John 5:39)(John 14:6).
All Christians, including myself, need to look into the mirror and ask ourselves: Are we being effective for JESUS? The solution is carrying out The Great Commission , bring down the walls, the kingdoms of men, denominations, tear them down, leave the power, the money, the ego……..go out for JESUS, not your agenda! We are to be the BODY OF CHRIST! NOT INDEPENDENT IN OUR WAYS! There is power in numbers! Why is there a Church on every street corner in New Mexico and all over America, and we are still going to hell as country? Get out on the road, hear from people.
