THIS IS WHAT OFFENDS THE AVERAGE ‘PENTECOSTAL’ BELIEVER….
It is very easy to annoy and offend the average member of a Pentecostal church:
1. Say ANYTHING contrary to what his pastor has said
2. Say ANYTHING that will constrain him to THINK biblically by himself (particularly, this causes them a very bad headache!)
3. Say ANYTHING that will burst his deeply-engrained DELUSION that Jesus will soon make all believers rich and happy in this world (especially believers that PAY Him the various monies prescribed by the pastors)
Sadly, in our days, most Pentecostal believers have NOT been raised on the words of Jesus Christ, but on the words of their pastors. Thus, most of them do NOT know Jesus Christ DIRECTLY, they know Him through the lens of their pastors.
This is why most of them will nearly burst their blood vessels if any man dares to speak AGAINST what their pastors have said or done (they do not react the same way when men speak against Jesus). For pastors are the ‘gods’ they know, the ‘gods’ they love, and the ‘gods’ they serve.
No wonder God has turned His back on most of the pastors of today!!! For He is indeed a jealous God.
So, if you do not want to incur the wrath and curses of the average Pentecostal believer, please say NOTHING against what his pastor says! Evangelise men to the church of his pastor – even if such men do not know Jesus Christ Himself.
This is how to maintain the friendship of the average Pentecostal believer. Please take note.
Thanks for reading, God bless you.
(The problem of STEALING God’s sheep actually started in the early days of the church. It is just that it has reached its climax in our days as the world speeds to an end.
Speaking to the elders of the Church in Ephesus, Apostle Paul said in Acts 20:30: “Also of your own selves SHALL MEN ARISE, speaking perverse things, TO DRAW AWAY DISCIPLES AFTER THEM.” So, we can see that men that have been entrusted into leadership positions can INDEED DRAW AWAY sheep after themselves. That is the sad, rampant situation we are witnessing in our days. Don’t be a victim! And please remember God’s sheep in your prayers.)
