All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others
Can you imagine what it was like when Jesus cleansed the temple and told the Pharisees, "Stop making my Father's house a marketplace!" I have wondered what would Jesus do if he came into the churches of today. What would He find?

Thank you both Kay and Richard for your responses. Kay, do you mind if I share what you posted on my Facebook page?
FOR STARTERS, I'VE SEEN SOMETHINGS OVER THE YEARS, I HAD A PREACHER ONE TIME, BACK IN THE 80'S TRY TO COUNSEL ME IN THE MOST UNGODLY WAY YOU CAN THINK OF, AND I WILL LEAVE IT AT THAT!!!!!! AND COME TO FIND OUT, I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE. THERE WERE 2 OTHER YOUNG GIRLS. NOW TALK ABOUT YOUR WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING!!!!!!! AND MOST RECENTLY, ABOUT 6 YRS. AGO, I WENT TO THIS CHURCH AND THE PREACHER WAS AS GIFTED IN TEACHING THE WORD AS YOU COULD WANT, FUNNY MADE HIS POINT AND YOU UNDERSTOOD IT. HE ALSO HAD A TREMENDOUS TESTIMONY. BUT OVER TIME THE LORD STARTED SHOWING ME THINGS THAT JUST WEREN'T RIGHT. I ASKED HIM ABOUT A COUPLE OF THINGS; I AM HAVING A PROBLEM WITH WHO TO VOTE FOR, TO MAKE IT SHORT, HE TOLD ME IF I DIDN'T VOTE FOR A CERTAIN PARTY , I WASN'T A TRUE CHRISTIAN!!!!!! WAIT A MINUTE , THE LAST TIME I CHECKED, EITHER YOU ACCEPTED JESUS IN TO YOUR HEART, BELEIVING GOD SENT HIS SON IN THE FLESH TO DIE FOR YOUR SINS, AND BY GRACE YOU ARE SAVED!!!!!!!! NOW EITHER YOU ARE OR YOU AREN'T!!!!!!!! I KNOW CHRISTIANS WHO ARE REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS, INDEPENDENTS. PERSONALLY I HAVEN'T SEEN MANY OVER THE YEARS RUNNING THAT I WOULD CALL GODLY. 2ND I ASKED HIM WHY DON'T PREACHERS HIT HARDER ON ALCOHOL, DRUGS, IMORALITY. HIS RESPONSE WAS, IF I PREACHED HARD ON ALCOHOL, THE MAJORITY OF MY CONGREGATION WOULD BE GONE, BECAUSE THEY ALL DRINK(INCLUDING HE AND HIS WIFE!!!). I KNOW THAT FOR A FACT, NOT TO MENTION USING MARIJUANA. I'VE SEEN SO MANY PREACHERS FALL AND ARE AFRAID TO STAND FIRM ON WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS , IT'S SO SAD. GOD MUST BE SO SAD AND DISAPPOINTED. WE MUST ALL LIFT OUR PASTORS UP AND BATHE THEM IN PRAYER. THEY ARE SO UNDER ATTACK!!!!!! BEING A PASTOR, THE DEVIL IS GOING TO ATTACK THEM MUCH HARDER. SO LET'S REALLY DO SOME SERIOUS PRAYING. WE AS CHRISTIANS MUST BE ON OUR TOES AND SEEK GOD DILIGENTLY. ASK HIM TO SHOW US IF SOMETHING ISN'T RIGHT AND HE WILL!!!! HE WARNS US ABOUT WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE. IF GOD WALKED INTO SOME OF THESE CHURCHES TODAY, ALL I CAN SAY IS, THERE WOULD BE A SHAKEUP LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN!!!!!!!!
Another good post.
This one gave me an idea for a discussion on the Forum.
I'm sure you'll recognize it when you see it.
Grace and Peace.
