Reader, good Wednesday morning I'm praying everyone has a marvelous and wonderful day on today let's make it great in Jesus name. Even secular Artist Kendrick Lamar thinks that todays churches are watering down their messages. If your church makes you feel good every single Sunday and you never walk out feeling convicted of your sin, then you are getting sugared water down preaching and it will damn your soul in the end. I really like this pattern of secular musicians being open about their relationship with God, Kanye, chance, and now Kendrick.
Kendrick Lamar is thinking about theology and his distance from the church of his childhood. It was missing the idea that faith and God don't just comfort, but also confront--that Christian commitments involve obligations.
"I’ve finally figured out why I left those services feeling spiritually unsatisfied as a child. I discovered more truth. But simple truth. Our God is a loving God. Yes. He’s a merciful God. Yes. But he’s even more so a God of DISCIPLE. OBEDIENCE. A JEALOUS God. And for every conscious choice of sin, will be corrected through his discipline."
