The Word of God is alive, teaching us everything we need to know about who God is and who we are before and after saving grace through the blood of Jesus Christ alone. And as believers we have been given the Holy Spirit and the grace of God to teach us and when necessary rebuke us.
But turn on the television or radio and you are apt to find Christian teachers claiming a special revelation from God as a message to His people. From “God is doing a new thing” to “God wants you to give money to my ministry” these “special revelations” are all over the place.
This morning, Pastor Gary Gilley joins us to discuss what the Word of God has to say about “special revelation”. We’ll also discuss how church “marketing” may be adding to the ranks of churches but actually harming the true Church of Jesus Christ. Have we attracted people through our own efforts just to grow in numbers and tithes by following a corporate model? Or have we obeyed Jesus’ commission to make disciples and preach the whole gospel rather than simply swelling the ranks of self-centered Christians occupying comfy seats on Sunday mornings?
