“Tear Down & Destroy”

September 19, 2008

Deacon: Usher, I got a call, a very threatening one I might add, claiming that you are seeking simply to “tear down and destroy” the church.  No church is perfect, so why do you go to such ends to derail an imperfect vessel?

Usher: Everything is imperfect Deak, so are you saying one shouldn’t speak out against anything because it’s all imperfect?

Deacon: Be reasonable Usher.  You are attacking people and their attempt to obey the word and follow God in the best way they know how.

Usher: So if they are being led about by those who are simply out for your money to pay for their exravagant lifestyles (as in Creflo admitted he lives an extravagant lifestyle but see no wrong in it), we should just let them keep on giving while their houses are foreclosed on and they end up being a ward of the state and its social system?  Tell me what scriptures ratify that type of thinking?

Deacon: But people don’t see it as an attack on the church, they take it personal.

Usher: If the shoe fits, wear it.  If you’re the pastor taking their money, then fess up and stop! If you’re the sheep funding their preposterous and often lascivious lifestyle, then you fess up and stop!  Both parties are wrong, the system is wrong and so let it be challenged.  And about your “best way they know how”, here’s my response – “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”.
