Our guest in the 8 am ET hour writes this: “As a Muslim convert to Christianity, the crisis of many megachurches is beyond the hypocrisy of celebrity pastors who preach what they do not emulate. More troublesome for people like me is that many celebrity pastors fail to teach the whole counsel of the Gospel; the obsession with social media fame, personal popularity, and wealth accumulation leads to an intentional omission of the hard truths of Christ's message. Repenting and turning from sin, not conforming to the patterns of this world, and facing persecution for our beliefs is a constant theme in the Bible. Without these truths to guide our behavior, a church body ends up more like a self-help group or a social club than a place of discipleship.” Powerful! Don't miss her story... and her wake-up call!
