Spiritual Integrity Tools

We are Christians, not Churchians

Most of us have spent a good amount of time in institutions called churches, which are for the most part organizations struggling with how best to implement that thing Jesus called “Church”.  As we have become more advanced in our understanding of the things Jesus said, we understand that being a “Christian” happens by 3 ver simple and straightforward things:

  1. believing in your heart that Jesus is Lord, that He died for your sins, and that he offers your total and complete absolution for all of those sins
  2. confessing these things with your mouth
  3. turning your back on sin and living the “new” life you have been given

The Apostle Paul puts it most succinctly in this passage from the Bible at 2 Corinthians 5:17; “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Unfortunately, most of the Churchian public is quite happy to see Christians become slightly modified versions of the old creations, not new ones… The message of the “new creation” has been dumbed down so far that Christians are barely recognizable from the rest of the population. In fact, the Barna group tells us that they have now become virtually indistinguishable from the rest of the population.

The Journey and the Destination

The operative word in this verse above is “become”, the “become” is both the journey and the destination. As long as a Christian is breathing he is on the “become” journey. There are 3 important elements of that “become” journey:

1-reading God’s Word, that book called the Bible.
2-talking to God, otherwise known as praying
3-meeting up with other Christians

And so how is that working? Well, we know that the average “Bible-Believing Christian” reads the bible a total of 12 minutes per week, and prays for a total of 2 minutes per week. The results show that this is not sufficient

So where is it falling down?

The fact that it is falling down is not up for debate, but the fact that there are great solutions available is also not up for debate, it is simply a question of whether Christians will make the decision build the critical path to follow that Christ who gave His life as payment for their sins. We postulate that the problem is really two-fold:

  1. because people often do not experience the power of the Christ in them and through them, they become distracted and fall away
  2. people do not have sufficient or effective tools to know how to effectively read God’s word so that it changes their lives, know how to effectively pray and talk with God so that He changes their lives, know how to meet with other Christians so that Christ can work through their lives…

What do we offer to help with this?
