Once I attended a Summer youth seminar and Christian concert that attracted a number of college students and young Christians. The atmosphere was fun and festive. The pastor speaking to the congregation was equally youth oriented. However, the message was at times vulgar, and even contained enthusiastic cursing, something which I have not been familiar with in any Church environment. The theology taught was often contrary to the Bible, and the songs sung during praise were worldly and secular. This I learned was the increasingly popular branding of entertainment churches spreading across the United States. The goal of many of these ‘new age’ church groups is to entertain masses and make money. At these seminars there hardly ever is the message of the Gospel.
In English Gematria ‘Mega Churches’ = 666
The youth concert was in someway connected to one of the myriad of newly minted ‘Mega Churches’ that is currently sweeping the globe.
Mega churches across the United States are becoming increasingly popular which is not only bringing thousands of worshipers together, but also billions of dollars in profit. From self-helo books to CDs and DVDs. Mega churches are becoming big money makers for the pastors and ministries they are apart of.
Scott Thumma, professor of sociology and religion at Hartfor Seminary estimates: “the mega church on average has about $6.5 million in income a year.” – Waronsatanblog
Christians today are filled with a hunger for knowledge and the truth. What many new Church groups arising in America, and globally, are offering these people are ‘get rich quick schemes’. Feel good now messages. Godless testimony.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
