We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"...I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead." -Revelation 3:1
These are hard words for us to hear from our Lord. They are hard to swallow, and can leave a bitter taste in our mouth. However, we know that He is a true and faithful witness. His words are not intended to wound, but words like these certainly leave a mark, as they should. He loves us as a Father. He loves His church like an expectant groom. "Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful -- open rebuke is better than love carefully concealed." (Proverbs 27:5&6) Our Lord warns us, and corrects our course because His desire is for our eternal souls. Who better to give life to a dead, false, or fraudulent church then THE life-giver, conquerer of death - Jesus Christ. Hear and obey, church.
