There are so many churches here in Tennessee, they say you can actually find one on nearly every street corner. Now, I do not know about that, but I do know there are quite a few here. One that is just up the road from where I live, made headlines a few years ago, when they put a huge cross on the parking lot of their church. There was alot of time, and money spent on this endeavor. Well, after the cross went up, they started sending letters out to try to get new members for their church. Lovebug, and I received one of the letters. It truly saddened my heart to read the letter, all it mainly was, was an attempt to raise funds for the payment of the cross. It stated clearly in very detailed words, that they were in debt to their bank, and needed believers to come together to pay this debt. I, in no way wish to be disrespectful to the people of this church, but people wake up. My God is no longer on the cross, my God is very much alive. Instead of spending excessive amounts of money, and putting yourselves in debt, to erect a cross upon a parking lot, you should have taken the time to go out on visitation to the neighborhoods surrounding your church, knocking upon doors, asking people to come to church. Which, prayerfully, would have lead to people hearing Jesus knocking upon the door of their hearts, and with your help, they would have answered His knock, and been saved. Jesus paid our debt already upon the cross, now we are to share Him with others. We should be pointing the way to Jesus, not to the bank to make a payment. Thank You Jesus for forgiving us when we mess up. Help us to get our act together, before it is too late.
