The church, comprised of all believers in Jesus Christ, is generally pretending she’s cloaked with kingdom power and effectiveness when in reality she has exposed herself in powerlessness to the ridicule of the world.
We can’t blame the devil. It’s just that for the most part, we’ve dumbed-down New Testament Christianity and accepted our reality as theology rather than biblical theology as our reality. We’ve reversed the standard, walking by sight and not by faith. We want to be the best of what we see, but frankly what we see is far removed from God’s best.
