Are you aware of all the spiritual problems the majority of the Mainstream Church in America are manifesting today? I learned in Seminary that church growth has been declining since the "1960's" when the "Me Generation" started to undermine the humility of Christ concept as taught and maintained in the mainstream church at the time. This was when narcissism started replacing humility in the way we look at life. It was shocking news to me when I learned about church growth decline because I wanted to be a foreign Missionary in Indonesia ministering to some primitive tribe lost in the jungle. God quickly changed my mind after learning about this. I thought to myself, what business do I have going to a foreign country preaching the Gospel when we are not doing the job here. It's like, why go clean up someone else's backyard when our own is filthy? I left Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1983 with the goal to find out why the mainstream church (the Body of Christ) is not growing. Former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee went to this Seminary and knows exactly what I am talking about in my thesis describing the reasons for church growth decline. His daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders is our White House Press Secretary. I have a very strong admiration and respect for Brother Mike and his daughter Sarah. Mike, Sarah and I know that God's hand is on Donald Trump. It's a miracle he beat the Vegas odds of +275 to become President. We will support our President and his vision for the future of our country as we participate in this Men's Mentoring Ministry. The mainstream church is afraid to mention the name of Trump in their church for fear of losing members. In other words, the loss of these member's financial support is more important to them than speaking the truth about seeing God's hand on President Trump. The Apostle Paul said that church leaders in the latter days would deny the power of the Holy Spirit. Most Church leaders are devoid of the Holy Spirit and cannot recognize the Holy Spirit at work today. This is why they do not see God's hand at work on President Trump. This deeply grieves my heart and is the number one motivating factor in my effort to get this Men's Ministry up and running to expose the corruption in the mainstream church today. Most church leaders have become spiritually blind as ministers of the Gospel. The mainstream church has left its first love and in dire need of revival. Let's humble ourselves and pray that this will happen very soon.
I have written a 30 point thesis on what God has revealed to me as being the main reasons for the decline in church growth and it's moral decay as we know it today. I believe more points will be added, enhanced and clarified as we work together as a group to study this problem and find ways to confront and correct them in the future. Martin Luther came up with 95 points of corruption in the Roman Catholic Church at the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Jesus was the most objective person who ever lived. I want to be like Him in my objectivity in solving these complex problems that plague the Body of Christ today. Don't you? Please let me know if you agree or disagree with any of these points. I am very open to your input. Please click on THESIS to gain access to my thesis page. I would be most grateful if you would take the time to read this thesis in its entirety and give me a call and let me know what you think. You can reach me on my cell phone. My number is 321-527-9372.
