Christian Men Behind the Church Pulpit
“Of the World” Preaching by Christian Men
I first wanted to start out by saying that I do not mean to pick on Steven Furtick too much with this blog. I disagree with his teaching and think he tends to preach like a pharisee. He focuses on the worldly pleasures instead of empowering the massive flock that he leads. He, along with many others, are leading Christian men to a sissified form of the gospel. This movement reminds me of the trendy Christian cringe I stumbled upon while on vacation.
The mega church pastor has feminized the average Christian male. This epidemic starts with a simple cardigan and ends with skinny jeans with worn seems.
Furtick is falling behind quickly on the “culture-style” attire he wears on stage each Sunday. I refrain from saying the stage at his “church” actually has a pulpit.
But Carl Lentz has replaced Furtick on the “woke” scale. Lentz is famous for his answer (or lack-thereof) to an abortion question on The View.
Christian Men Lacking Biblical Discernment
Christian men that fill the pews on Sunday mornings at these mega churches are obviously lacking Biblical discernment. I say this because if you actually studied the Bible diligently you would realize that these churches are filled with filth and leave.
These pastors have created cult followings that are leading sheep to the slaughter. Thousands of men are being led to hear, “Depart from me…” at the day of their judgement because of mega pastors like Lentz and Furtick.
I am in no way saying that these two pastors are the sole reason for this epidemic, but there are a slue of false teachers on Christian television every day. It is important for the true men of God to stand against this movement in evangelicalism and call it for what it is.
Changing the Feminist Backslide
If we call out these false teachers, then we can begin to repair the churches that they have destroyed. The “un-tuck” shirt movement that has invaded the church stage has degraded the gospel to an alarming state of health. Christian men no longer see it necessary to promote themselves in a manly manner, but instead apologize for their masculinity.
Instead of following pastors such as Voddie Baucham and Paul Washer, Christian men are following false teachers that tickle their ears. The issue with Baucham and Washer is that they call us out for our sissified culture and what we need to do to change and repent. Yes, the Bible clearly states that our wives should submit to us in marriage. But what is even more important is to love our wives like Christ loves the Church.
When men in the church leave their wives or watch pornography, it destroys the home. Then the foundation of the local church weakens. When the local church weakens the disease spreads to the community. Finally, when the whole community erodes the national movement starts.
These false teachers invade communities with their church planting and change the community from the inside out. True, Biblical doctrine is seen as too “old school” and must be changed. They bring in non-believers with their coffee and keep them because of their wussy gospels.
We all have loved ones that are trapped in this movement. This movement is most likely making its way into the church you attend. First it is Jesus Culture music and soon enough your pastor will wear a t shirt instead of a suit. The Holy Spirit is evicted from these churches. This is due to true Christians leaving for another church. We did it! But it is even more important that strong Biblical people stay at that church to fight this disease. The great commission calls us to go and make disciples.
God bless you and your witnessing to these men lost in the movement.
