3:08 PM - Purpose Driven Apostasy
by Steven Garren
The Churches of today,
Don't like the old time way,
When truth was preached,
And souls were reached,
With Christ's life changing ways.
Hymns are so refreshing,
They are from God a blessing.
But now the worldly beat is neat,
The product of the devil's deceit.
Pastors now refuse to tell,
Warnings of an eternal hell,
Lest members turn and go away,
To a church where they will feel okay.
In scripture we do learn,
Those with itching ears will yearn,
To turn away from truth that fulfills,
So they can please their own selfish will.
But also we are told,
To preach the Word so bold,
To rebuke and expose,
Those that oppose,
Sound doctrine the Bible holds.
It should come as no astonishment,
That Satan's lies may feel heaven sent.
An angel of light he can be,
With very great duplicity.
The Bible plainly tells,
We must not please ourselves,
Lest we believe and be deceived,
By what the devil has conceived.
True Christians must not love,
Those things not from above.
For Jesus did not come to unite,
Holiness with self-centered delight.
Christ's true Church can never be,
Popular to the world you see.
So if you find a church that way,
You better leave without delay.
Light and salt a church should be,
Not a social club for you and me.
If all you want from church is fun,
Then God will never say well done.
And on that great judgement day,
You may sadly hear Him say,
Depart from me and go away,
Because you never loved me anyway.
