Reflection. The lack of fear of God. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translate.

Week 70 shares with us: "The lack of fear of God."

The lack of fear of God in the church is reflected in the attitudes that siblings have towards God himself:

1. Many do not study His Word, not even a culture of reading the Bible.

2. Many do not exercise the priesthood (pray, intercede and teach the scriptures to his wife and children, Rev. 1.6) and it shows when we see in the cult that parents are following the Bible preaching in hand, while the boys of eight or nine years playing with tablet or are reading a comic. Or worse, while the cult develops, young people sitting together, are busy sending messages wassap arranging the output of Saturday night after Worship (which obviously were totally absent) ... Keep in mind that many of parents of these young people are the leaders and workers of the Church.

3. It is common that many members falling again and again into the same sins, giving the pattern that are not born again.
4. A clear interest to receive the blessings without taking over responsibilities as a Christian.
5. There is a constant laziness on the part of leadership (starting with the pastors), that does not correct for not losing members.

Because of this is that Sunday sermons are constantly talking about the basics again and again, how the author of Hebrews 5.11 to 6.2 NIV said at the time:

11 On this topic we have much to say but difficult to explain because you what they go in one ear leaves them on the other. 12 In fact, at this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word. In other words, need milk, not solid food. 13 Whoever eats only milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness; It is like an infant. 14 In contrast, solid food is for the mature, for those who have the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, as they have exercised its power of spiritual perception. 6 Therefore leaving the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity. Not laying again the foundation, such as repentance from acts that lead to death, faith in God, 2 instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.

But this situation is due to the policies adopted by most pastors in this Postmodernism:

1. People do not study because pulpit are given all digested, ie you can not teach people to "think / ponder" the Scripture, but given the "Truth Revealed" in a simple prayer book. As a result, the faithful do not know just remove the food from the Bible, constantly needs someone would of been resolved. Many also carry their Bible Worship, Total is a mega screen where the text appears.

2. Because the weight is put on the music rather than preaching.

3. Most men do not exercise the priesthood, because in all these years have been told that "serve God" is in within the four walls of the church, when in fact the Church come to learn to live as Christians elsewhere, starting his ministry at home.

4. In an effort to "Growing the Church" methods "Church Growth" that focus on the "Love of God" and the preaching of Evangelism Quick solutions are used: "Come to find his miracle", "Campaign Milagros "," Stop suffering "and other slogans on. But Jesus said, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."

That is, what is the fruit of bad policies of Church Growth, lack of self criticism and put more emphasis on the amount of people in the amount of Salvos.

It's time to change, Week 70 is getting closer. While "Christians" here do not read the Bible, the Middle East prefer decapitation to apostasy. And the worst thing is that silence on this is done, do not talk, do not pray and not taught.

 Lack of fear of God, religion, Evangelism Prosperity, lack of repentance.
