It’s not WHAT’S SAID in today’s churches… but many times WHAT’S NOT SAID is more IMPORTANT to pick-up on.
Don’t be Hoodwinked by slick talk and imagery; think with your head and heart, let not your heart be deceived. Speaking from experience; SAVED by GRACE ALONE… FAITH ALONE… hook, line, and sinker… during a 2003 Forty Days of Purpose campaign.
Since then, understanding differing BIBLICAL THEOLOGIES & DOCTRINES MATTER A GREAT DEAL when attending any church, just remember it is a “public arena” and therefore may not be a safe place. Guard your mind and heart from false teaching and thinking (including GOSSIP) no matter how religious the (inner/outer circle) appearance portrays.
No matter what, don't let anyone question your salvation (no one) this is between you and Jesus aka GOD only by HIS Saving Grace and Faith alone. #180
The Christian journey is not for the faint-of-heart, one must take the effort to study biblical scripture and doctrine for understanding and clarity.
