DEVOTIONAL ROUNDS FOR SQUARE CONGREGATIONS. BY FABIAN MASSA.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.



A well-made "Devotional" is the corollary of a thorough study, it is the final conclusion, which sums up all of the above.

But in Pentecostal churches, "Devotional" is generally a teaching that is drawn from the first reading of a biblical text, something simple, a truth of immediate application in the life of the believer. The devotional treated in this way is the fundamental tool of the Pentecostal Churches, where it is sought that all the teaching be for "daily life". From this perspective, everything that exceeds "the minimum that the believer needs to walk as God commands" is unnecessary and redundant.

Then instead of "Extending the Tent" of the mind to bring more knowledge of Scripture, teaching is simplified to fit into a small square.

From reducing rations, from reducing reading, from not deepening the study, people have become accustomed to resisting only a few verses and a simple, straightforward, simple conclusion ... something that falls from being mature.

Speaking with my friend Leo today of these things, I asked him how do you do to say this kindly? I acknowledge that I am not very popular, telling my friends (the few that remain, some of whom are pastors) to stop preparing "Round Devotions" (simplified - super simple) because that way their congregations will not grow, like In fact they have not grown for decades. But I have assumed the role of saying these things, against all expediency.

Week 70 is about to begin, while most of you are still with the Bottle Cults, without distinguishing the Times and the Signals. Awake you who sleep, you who slept and also your pastor, you sleep.
