Dark Reality of A Physical Rich Christendom and Spiritual Poverty

How can one talk of exponential growth of the Christian population when it is said that 80% believe in Prosperity Gospel in Africa (in fact it is the reason of conversion ) ? How can one talk of the shift of Christendom in numbers to Africa when Western Christianity,the brand that is in Africa has turned the West into an agnostic society ?

Look at the recent Catholic church scandals...minsters have been serving sin and not God yet it is the biggest Christian church ?!! These are days of mourning,Godly sorrow not rejoicing in the success of man made gospel empires.

This irony or oxymoron proves one thing : THINGS ARE AWFULLY WRONG IN CHRISTENDOM AND MANY CHURCHES WHEN MANY THINK THERE IS NOTHING WRONG. Yes many churches in Christendom boast of abundant physical riches and money and assets. But poverty abounds in sound doctrine the word of God and the life and example of Jesus Christ and the early church. Yet this poverty leads to eternal destruction and weeping.

Christendom in the past 100 years ( very short time ) has amassed the largest amount of riches more than all the church ages combined. But these riches have not cured the biting spiritual poverty existing therein. The numerous scandals in Christendom are proof of DEEP SPIRITUAL POVERTY AMIDST PLENTY OF PHYSICAL RICHES.

To add more salt to the wound, these churches call themselves champions of physical poverty,champions of feeding the poor, champions of entertainment industry, International Peace makers

but are Losing the real BATTLE AND WAR OF SIN, THE WORLD AND SATAN. Why ?

The above works are not the works of the Holy Spirit but the works of Satan. Yet through Jesus Christ the works of Satan are destroyed and even if we fall we are more than conquerors overcoming by the word of our testimony (hence mortifying the deeds of the flesh ) and by the blood of the Lamb.

So it seems it is not the Holy Spirit who is teaching Christendom but Satan has taken over Christendom. The riches mentioned are unrighteous mammon and not the spiritual blessings and riches promised to the church first before inheriting the earth at the return of Jesus Christ.

It is sane to say that more money in Christendom actually led to more evil in Christendom and acceleration of apostasy not the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Some Christians are right in saying there is need of a complete overhaul of such powerless Christianity but how can that be when ;

There are more so called Christian denominations/heresies and sects than in Islam, (a false religion)

The number of false doctrines are innumerable and many are killing the spiritual lives of many,taking many to hell.

There are very many different English versions( or perversions ) of the Bible,yet God's word is one and English is one language. Moreover the versions are corrupting the word of God...blasphemy.

There are different interpretations of well explained and open faced scripture yet the scripture is of no private interpretation as Peter the apostle stated. The so called various interpretations exalted in Bible Schools are sign of rejecting the Holy Spirit and proof of private interpretations...APOSTASY.

This is abundant proof that Christendom is one big Babel-dom or home of confusion..a Religious Babylon for God is not the author of Confusion

Jesus truly warned of many Christs, many false prophets many being deceived but also promised that those who endure to the end shall be saved. This is endurance to sound doctrine by doing what the Lord says and abiding in his word no matter the cost.

The call of Jesus Christ is the same to all his flock...REPENT OR PERISH

Luke 13 : 5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Rev 3: 17 -19....Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

The above exposure is not denying the fact that Christians battle with the flesh .IT is an exposure of the losing battle in Christendom yet we have victory in Jesus Christ. It is irony to say you have Christ but the works of Satan are what are manifesting from such a testimony. No remorse ,no repentance or grief only excuses,justifications and covering of sin. Today's Christendom is headed for the dead and destruction because God is holy and without holiness no man will see him.

IT is time to return to the whole counsel of God's word back to the basics; there is no excuse..the first church did it ..they worked out their salvation with fear and trembling..so the same goes for all of us in these days where iniquity is abounding.
