This we have heard …

“This we have heard: “I am a born again Christian and I am happy that my sins are forgiven and I go to church on Sunday because I like the fellowship!” We ask:
“Do you not go to put yourself in the way of spiritual blessing?” The answer: “No, I am saved and I do not need anything!” We ask: “Have you offered to
witness, to pray, to encourage, to assist, to participate in your church’s life and outreach?” The answer: “No. My church seems to get along very well without my
help!” Brethren, this “non participation” kind of faith is a strange parody on Bible Christianity. Men and women who say they are believers just cancel
themselves out. Is it something we have learned from the sporting events?-the great majority are spectators. They come and sit! If there is any true spiritual life
within us, God will give us a gift of some kind and the humble soul will find something to do for God!”
