Judgment Begins with the Church

 image Here’s another prophetic word by R. Loren Sandford:  “Recovering Our Lost Influence

Loren has some right-on counsel for the church here and points out that Christians lost their political and cultural influence in America because of hypocrisy in high places(failing Christian leaders) and because of a ‘religious’ pharisaic attitude towards unbelievers:

I don’t see judgment falling on the nation yet but rather on the church—God’s people—and it has only just begun. 1 Peter 4:17 clearly indicates that judgment begins with the house of God.

The first stage of judgment—already in motion—is that we have lost both our power as a voting block and our cultural influence. We have lost these things (1) because we have presented ourselves to the nation in the religious spirit rather than the Spirit of Christ and (2) because our integrity in high places has been badly compromised.

The second stage of judgment on the church in days to come is that the culture of this nation will continue in the direction it has been choosing to take for the last 40 years. The judgment is that we can do nothing to stop this slide into lawlessness and immorality because we’ve sacrificed our moral authority.

Sandford ends with good counsel for the American church—well worth reading.            *Top

    I am beginning to feel that if the Church is coming under judgment, it is not due to our religious spirit or lose of influence on our culture, but because we have shifted our emphasis from proclaiming the Good News of Christ to a dying world, and in its placed tried to bring governments and cultures under the Laws of God, rather than under the Grace of God. God help us.
