Bible-based Christianity is dead. Well…at least to listen to some it is. Society wants us to believe that. Churches are closing their doors (and not for good reasons).  Recently several high profile evangelicals have left the faith-some to go to false religions and some to defect.  It is not unusual to read about some who have turned from God completely and have declared themselves atheists or one of the “nones.”

So that begs a question: is the handwriting on the wall? Is the church almost done? Will it go the way of the dodo bird? The movement afoot seems to be either change or become irrelevant. (Which by the way is not a new movement at all).  Many, afraid of irrelevance, have changed and given in to the secular media, Hollywood values and the LGBTQ+ thrust.

As you can see my theme for 2020 is TRUTH. I thought the best way to start is to ask and try to answer the question “What is truth?” For a forward glance check out Romans 1:16-17.  I want to lay the groundwork for this series by trying to answer the question.  My approach is to ask whether truth is really all that important or then whether truth is a reality. I’m going to share some of my thoughts in blogs next week.

Meanwhile, I would greatly appreciate your prayers for us this week.

    Truth can hurt, but that is why it should always be given with love. Unbalanced in either direction can lead to a message that Jesus did not intend. Truth was never meant to brow beat someone into submission.

    Praying for you all this week!

  2. This will be a compelling series, Bill, and I’m looking forward to hearing your ideas about truth and the church. It so saddens my heart to hear of so many Christians leaving the faith. Makes me wonder if they ever really had a relationship with Jesus, or if the church has made that relationship irrelevant for them. Praying for the Body of Christ in the new year.

  3. Praying for you.

    God bless.

    So often we don’t really want to hear the Truth–especially God’s Truth. Sounds like a great place to start your series and to start the 2020, Bill.
