Where Are the Christian Churches When We Need Them Most?


One of the most important functions of religious faith, observed St. Thomas Aquinas, is to allow people of limited intelligence and people with limited time for study to know important truths about God without having to investigate them personally. After all, few ordinary people are in a position to spend years rationally investigating the tenets of their faith, so, if they are to have any chance at finding Truth during their lives, they need to have it prepackaged for them to swallow on faith alone with the assistance of the Church.

This infinitely wise observation is just as true today as it was in the thirteenth century, and the Christian churches would do well to remember it during these especially turbulent political and economic times. In fact, with the world’s masses aflame with revolutionary ideas at the very same time that governments are going bankrupt, the need has never been greater for the Christian churches to remind their unthinking, gullible, and emotional flocks of what is true and just and good. If they fail to do this, and right quick, there is a very real and dangerous possibility that the Christian masses will get swept away by exciting and profoundly immoral ideas that will doom Western civilization for the foreseeable future.

Here is the answer for Christians... if they will only follow it. 

The ONLY place that tells about Christianity is the Bible. The Old Testament does so for Jews, and the New Testament for all Christians.

Find out what the Bible says for you. Get Bible tapes or CDs. Put them into their respective players and turn the players on.

Listen for an absolute minimum of 30 minutes every day. EVERY DAY! Never stop... until you get to Heaven where you can hear it direct from The Great King Himself.

And don't forget to read it now and again, as well.

What utter garbage and nonsense. The churches have failed because none of their members have been "Born Again." Religious belief, based on gullibility, is worthless and counterproductive. "Ye must be Born Again." The churches have always equated this rebirth with belief in a story or membership in a group, rather than the complete transformation of consciousness taught by Christ. No wonder their record is so full of murder, genocide, hypocrisy and self-delusion.
