The dampening of the Spirit
My inspiration for the title of this article came from a video that I watched with the title of "Christianity Must Be Destroyed", this video was ok, but its advice was bad because they were also willing to destroy Christ's advice from Matthew 5, which of course is not a good thing. My inspiration for the article itself came from my visit to an event that was supposed to be about changing the church so that young people are more involved, but it instead turned out to be yet another entertainment deception fest where people were working their flesh in reveling. I was hoping that this event would be a good place to talk to people about changing the church for the better, but when I read the program I realised that the entertainment masters were in control again and that there would not be much chance of this happening. Things went down a bit more when I was greeted by the organiser of the event, I noticed that she was showing a bit too much of her chest and I have to admit that this was a surprise because of the supposed usual dress code for that church and this made me decide to avoid seeking her out for the rest of the day. Now you might think that this is a small matter that does not need to be mentioned, but I had recently finished writing an article relating to the dress code of the church and how it can affect visitors, so seeing her that way made here end up in the enemy camp in relation to that article. During the lunch break things were not too bad because I had the chance to speak to some of the other younger men in the church and we managed to have a good talk relating to why young boys seem to be so easily destroyed out of the modern church by the time they reach 18, while other organisations are managing to attract young men who are in this age range. I could not quite convince them that is was something that the modern church was doing wrong, but I at least got them to admit that our methods are lacking when compared to those other organisations.
The noisy vs the quiet.
Things went downhill again when the the entertainment resumed and I decided to stand outside for a bit to get away from the noise, it turned out though that I was not the only one who the noise was getting to. A quiet young couple were talking to some of the church brethren on the pavement because they were having a hard time getting their young daughter to sleep because of the noise, but I could see that they were having a bit of a hard time convincing the revelers that their reveling was a problem. One of the so called ministers came out and even had the cheek to say that the church building has been here longer than they have been, but the revelers eventually decided to relent and turn down the volume a little bit. Now you might wonder why the church members response was a problem, well in Acts 2:46,47 it says "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved." and we see that these church members were able to praise God while still having favour with all the people, which means they were doing it in a way that would not disturb a young child who was trying to get some sleep. We can also read in I Peter 2:11,12 where it says "Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation." and it was obvious that the complaining couple did not think that the blaring music was an example of good works so they ended up speaking with people who were "Enjoying their fleshy lusts while defending their actions against the Gentiles, whereas the Gentiles were pleading quietly for mercy, but only seeing bad works, therefore speaking ill of God in the day of visitation" which is the opposite of what is said in the Bible. Things picked up again when some other church brothers came outside and we managed to have a long discussion about the happenings in the church, without being disturbed by the loud music, but it had to eventually come to an end, so it was time to head back into the reveling. When I returned inside the reveling was still going strong and the middle aged and old men seemed to be enjoying themselves, while I could see that most of the younger male children were not interested, which seems to be a good sign to me, even though it is likely that they will be destroyed out of the church by the time they are 18. What I was hoping was that they would cancel the reveling for the afternoon and then hold a discussion relating to how the church can change in order to accomodate the young people in a better way, but it turned out that the entertainment masters were always going to have their way so that the revelers could do their works of the flesh. If you are in agreement with anything that I have written then I hope you can see that, in order to give the younger members of society a decent chance of making it to God's kingdom, that the modern church must be destroyed.
Time to bring in a professional
I will now go into a hypothetical situation that I hope will further show you why the destruction of the modern church is the only solution to some of these problems that we have. Imagine that a mercenary came along and asked what is the best way of him making it into God's kingdom, I would give him all the advice that I could, but would eventually have to take him along to a modern church where he would see what was happening. If it is one of the churches that I visit, then he would find a place with people that like to satisfy their flesh with loud music, then he would hear a tame preacher speaking one of the usual messages and then people will leave and go home to the joys of the world, as if being with God was too boring. I would then advise him to go home and read through his Bible, if he is a true mercenary then I would expect him to get back in contact with me to ask what on earth is going on. He might say something like "When looking in your church all I could see were some old and middle aged men, who were not even close to mercenary quality, while there were a lot of women of all ages, but they did not seem to talk much about your God when I could hear some of their conversations. The children seemed to be a bit ruder than I would have expected and their parents did not seem to be at all concerned about this. On the other hand the people that dealt with God in the Bible seemed to be more at my level, some of them even seemed to be above mercenary level, because they were fighting for God without being paid. I especially liked David because he was being guaranteed victories by God, which is something that a modern day mercenary could only dream about, while having to live like a Gypsy, but he did not complain to God about his situation. I noticed also that the later people were fighting without physical swords, but they were using God's word like a sword and even getting killed because of this. The women in the Bible also seemed to be a lot more excited about your God than the women that I saw, I especially liked Ruth who seemed to prefer having your God over getting another husband. If the people in the Bible are this exciting then why does the modern church seem to be filled with people who seem to be on life support?" I might then reply "I am not sure but it seems as if the Devil has somehow managed to only convince ex dancehall people to start up churches in the 50s and 60s, which means that you will find a lot of old men who seem to prefer their entertainment over being a mercenary for God. They all seem to be too scared or have no interest in going out into the streets, like Christ and the Apostles did, but seem to prefer sitting in their dancehalls for God, while pretending to serve God and honouring Him with their lips. This then also means that only other ex dancehall people will think that what is going on makes any sense, which explains why it seems like nonsense to you because you are not an ex dancehall person." The mercenary might then reply "So what can be done to fix this situation and bring the mercenary level people back into the church?" and my answer might be "Well I don't think that it is possible to change anything in the churches that I have visited because, imagine if the ex dancehall leaders stood up and announced that they are changing things so that the entertainment will be replaced by all day teaching, like Christ did, they would then have a mass exodus of the people, who like their flesh to be entertained, which would then cause their illegal tithes to dwindle and they would then have to shut their church buildings down due to a lack of money. You also have to realise that they can't suddenly just tell their congregations that everything is changing because someone sensible might ask why they did not work this out 49 years ago, when the church had been running for a year, when they noticed that they had only managed to attract other ex dancehall people rather that mercenary level people. They could also have noticed something was wrong at least 29 years ago, because they would never seem to be able to retain the 18-25 year old young men in the church, what would instead happen is that these young men would leave the church, have their fun in the world but then get burned out by it and then they would return to the church in their burned out state, leaving them at a dancehall level, rather than them staying in the church and getting to an almost mercenary level. So the only option that I can see is for the images of these churches to be destroyed so that young people can know that these places are not for them if they are trying to get into God's kingdom. Are you up for helping me with this?" Hopefully the mercenary will reply "Sure count me in, it sounds like a battle worth fighting so that more people can realise that these fake churches are just getting in the way and it looks like their destruction is needed in order for people to be freed from their restrictive teachings."
How to get through to God
Now what you have read above might seem a bit extreme but I feel that the seriousness of the situation might have never been explained to you properly. If we read Acts 10:1-4 where it says "There was a certain man in Cæsarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God." we see that giving alms to people, because of the kindness of your heart, and praying to God as often as you can, are activities that can be recognised directly by God Himself, so you would think that the churches would be explaining to you that these activities are the most important things that you can do. The singing and music playing should not even be close to being an important thing that church members should be doing because it is possible for God to get fed up with them as we can see in Amos 5:21-24 where it says "I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream." and we see here some of the activities that God can get seriously bored with if judgement is not performed, like controlling the way that the women in the church dress so that the brothers do not get distressed, and if righteousness is not done, like instantly turning down the loud music, while saying sorry, so that a young girl can get to sleep. I also decided to put in the first two verses so that the cleverer people will try to say that it does not apply to them because of the context, well we know that God does not change and that His word stands forever, so I get the feeling that the modern entertainment church is still in the same trouble that the Israelites were in the past.
Let the destruction begin
So who is up for it, my mercenary friend is ficticious so he won't be able to help, but I could certainly do with some help in this seemingly impossible mission, but remember that if God is against us then the entertainers will get their victory and I am not sure what is going to happen then, but if God is with us then the outcome could be quite a scary one. Remember that we will be doing this for the younger people, who want to get into God's kingdom, and for the people who mistakingly think that the entertainment means something, but have this suspicious feeling that they are being scammed. You will also be helping the other people in the world who are being scared away from God because of the seemingly crazy people that seem to inhabit some of these churches, if these people can be exposed properly then people can finally that our God who seeks professional level people, who can even be above mercenary level, to go out into the world and convince the masses of their impending doom. We can also see why it is worth doing good works for God in this life in Revelation of John 14:12,13 where it says "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them." and we see here that they will follow the doer over to the other side and will relate to the treasure that Jesus went on about while he was here. Hopefully you have also realised that Cornelius, who we talked about earlier from Acts 10, had his prayers and alms giving recognised by God before he died, which means that it is possible for the same thing to happen to us now, therefore making it obvious that the Bible is the word of God because it is the only holy book that has a God that will actually make contact with you in this life; all other holy books expect you to just believe in them and then die without their God ever getting in touch with you before you die, which is certainly a convenient thing for the people that push those religions. I hope I have said enough to convince you of the mission and I hope to get in contact with more people who know for certain that the modern church must be destroyed.
