    More Sermon Details:   
    Study historical theology and one of the trends you
    will notice is that churches and institutions almost
    always drift into apostasy and spiritual decline.
    Earthly organizations seem to have an almost
    unavoidable tendency to degenerate—and if they
    continue to exist at all, they will for all practical
    purposes become totally secular. The ones that
    continue as religious institutions (like the papacy
    and the eastern orthodox church) grow corrupt, both
    doctrinally and often morally, and wherever they
    remain dominant they produce spiritual blight.
    
          I suppose that's because human institutions
    are built and populated by people who suffer from
    total depravity. And it usually takes only a
    generation or two before the founding principles are
    abandoned or amended beyond recognition.
    
          My faith is not shaken by that. The Lord is
    not building an earthly temple or a worldly society,
    so the dissolution of human institutions, while sad
    and deplorable, is not a disaster of eternal
    proportions. The only Christian institution God is
    building is the church of Jesus Christ, and the gates
    of hell will not prevail against her. Individual
    churches may fail; the church universal will
    ultimately be the Church Triumphant...

    Phil is my favorite expositor when it comes to trends in the church.

    “ Strong Sermon! ”
    Phil gives a great, detailed presentation of some of the liberalizing factors that are moving into our churches and giving the listeners weak Gospel messages.
