This is a disturbing example of the “church” evolved.
I am sadly convinced that the focus of many churches in the United States has been “self help” and cultural approval rather than the celebration of Jesus and His Gospel. They have more in common with humanistic atheists than anything the Bible really teaches.
The Christian message is one of restoration; God recreating us back into what we were supposed to be and sealing us with the gift of Holy Spirit. That is made possible only through the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Paying lip service to God and Jesus without, promoting “cheap grace” through the belief and message that people can be “Christians” without becoming obedient disciples is a heresy. It presents a god that exists for our pleasure. That at its core is just a trumped up version of humanism.
There is no forgiveness of sins without the shedding of blood. Would we have the gospel message if it weren’t for men and women who allowed their blood to be shed as martyrs? They gave their lives so we could know the One who gave His life for us.
