For Ministers Only
You Messengers of God…why are so many of you, failing at your Calling. If you haven't been mentioning Jesus very often in your sermons, it's probably because you know they'll see enough about Him for themselves, if they'll read their Bible. Don't you know that too many of them are leaving God's messages for you to preach.
And you're failing in the same way about their having to be "born again" to go to Heaven. It's there plain as day in the Bible, in John 3:1-21. so you're leaving it for them to search and find. But you're failing, just as they are, and yours is the greater failure.
And some sins…including sexual sins…are sometimes not given in plain words, and you take that as an excuse to not only fail to warn them, but even allow it among themselves and even yourself. For example what do you think the Lord meant when He said in Romans 1:26-27, "women did change the natural use unto that which is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men, working that which is unseemly; and receiving to themselves that recompence their error which was meet." And that’s only one warning among many in the Bible, against homosexuality.
You and they are failing, and you have the greater sin. They follow your lead, and both will fall into the ditch. Do you think that your message is 1st Corinthians 14:40; to "let things be done decently and in order?" If your congregation is quiet as a mouse, Someone is missing. Is it Christ?
