Building Blocks 4/14/19
THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2019
Posted by: Lee Creek Baptist Church | more..
I picked up the TV remote in my hotel room anticipating catching up on my favorite shows. We don’t have satellite or cable TV at our house so I rely on motel stays to keep me up to date. This usually works out because they air reruns all day before the new episode plays in prime time. If you add up what we save by not having a satellite, it basically pays for 12 hotel rooms each year. I was disappointed to find out that none of the 2 or 3 series that I binge watch were on that night. With 120 channels, surely I can find something else...

Oh, and find something else I did! I found 19 religious broadcasting channels. Yes, I said nineteen because I counted them twice. The first thing I noticed was that the prosperity preachers don’t have enough faith to reverse the effects of aging. Many of the same old charlatans were still on the air twisting Scripture and stealing money. Only now they do it with bent backs, wrinkled faces, gray hair, and glasses. Their were some new faces which gave me the hope that at least one of these 19 channels would have a solid Bible teacher. Sadly, every new preacher I encountered was hawking the same old falsehoods for his own personal gain.

I turned it off after an hour or so of going back and fourth between those “Christian” broadcasts. I thought to myself, nearly one in every six channels in this cable market is a Christian channel. Are Christians around here demanding more channels or is Christian television marketing a very lucrative venture? Well, I’ll let you be the judge of that. Then I got to thinking that about one in six Americans are practicing some form of the Christian faith. So maybe 19 channels is about right? But none of these channels would be considered biblically sound. All but two Catholic channels were preaching some form of the self help prosperity gospel. That means that the average Joe just flipping channels probably thinks this is what Christianity looks like. And I would say he’s right, this is what American Christianity looks like.

That bothered me for a while, what I saw on TV is just a reflection of where we are as a nation. Then a light bulb went off! We’ll start a real Christian TV network! RCTV! We’ll air nothing but solid Bible preachers 24/7! Now all I need to do is find some sponsors. Let’s see, who would pay a God hating media network to air these unpopular preachers who are delivering offensive messages to an uninterested audience? Yep, that’s where my dreams for RCTV ended. We have 19 channels of false gospel for the same reason we have small churches with the real gospel. The gospel of Jesus Christ has never been popular but it is still being proclaimed as it should, in His Churches.

About 4 or 5 years ago a preacher approached me after I finished my sermon at a conference and said “You’re a big God preacher.” At first I thought he was accusing me of arrogance. I had to stop for a minute and repeat what he said in my mind. He...

As I sat at my computer reading the back and forth arguments of two guys I went to high school with it dawned on me: They are comparing facts with feelings! There was nothing new about their discussion, it centered on two opposing political view...

If there were a way to draw the blood from American Christianity and send it off for a lab test, it would come back with extremely low levels of doctrine and discernment. The test would also reveal elevated levels of emotionalism and...

There’s a certain level of anxiety within the heart and mind of a preacher ever time he deals with a controversial topic. The topic may be instructed throughout the bible but viewed as improper throughout the culture. The preacher knows what he is...

The words of Christ in Mat 23:11 “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant” have been ringing in my ears ever since I preached on that text back in January. Every time some little trivial issue gets under my skin and I start to...

You could almost hear the sighs of relief from many local Methodist when the news broke. They finally had the vote on same sex marriage and gay clergy in the UMC. I was tired of hearing about it and the fact they put it to a vote says a lot about...

I can’t help but chuckle at the inconsistencies of so many professing Christians these days. When the news broke that Satanist of Arkansas have adopted a one mile stretch of highway to keep clean, people went nuts. The rowdiest opponents vowed to...

Why do we attend church? I really want everyone consider what motivates them to attend church. Take some time and reflect on why you roll out of bed on your day off and travel to church. I’m not asking this question so that I can learn what you...

The average church member in America could care less about Bible doctrine. These days it seems that churches are shallow in doctrine and deep into emotion. Now I will be the first to confess that teaching Bible doctrines will make the masses bored...
