This post is part of my IN 300 WORDS series. In exactly 300 words I highlight a key issue relevant to God-fearing people who seek authentic understanding of the teachings of the Messiah from Nazareth.
Let’s face it, the Christianity of the developed world has failed to win the hearts and the minds of the people of the Western civilization. Only three decades ago the dividing line between what used to be the free world and the rest of the world, was clearly visible and tangibly defined.
We have now come to a place where Western “doctors” are chopping off the breasts of perfectly healthy girls, social media companies are offering 70+ genders at signup, and jihadists are leading the FBI by the nose (Exhibit A: CAIR-MN).
How did we get here, friends?
It’s because of the failure of Western Christianity. We have been reinventing the God of the Bible since the days of Constantine. We made him Roman-Catholic, then Greek-Orthodox, then Protestant.
We invented monasteries, mega-churches and missionaries in his name. Even though none of these are in the Bible.
We’ve created hundreds of translations of the Bible into English while there are thousands of languages still lacking even ONE!
Annually the US spends more money on teen makeup ($120B) and pets ($70B) than the entire western world on humanitarian aid ($152B) in 2019.
But even that’s a joke because most aid money goes to dictators.
What are we to do?
What if I decided to start a movement that honors THE TRUTH more than the lies of the media, politicians, pastors, academics and corporations? How many people would want to be part of such culture of truth?
Can we even know THE TRUTH?
Let’s begin with Jesus himself.
He declared to Pontius Pilate that the very reason He was born into this world was so that he can testify to the TRUTH! (Gospel of John 18:36-38).
And yet we each have our own “truths”?
Something doesn’t add up.
