“I think the church is a sleeping giant that needs to wakeup.” My view of this statement


This quote is from Greg Laurie. Personally never hear of the man, nor do I know when he made this statement. All I can say is that if the church is still asleep today, it is dead.
Why do I say this?
No true Christian would support a group that denies God. This has been documented to be where the Democratic Party stands, yet there are those that call themselves “Christian” and still vote and support Democrats.
Matthew 10:33 – “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
No true Christian would support Abortion, especially after the videos that came out last year stating that Planned Parenthood was cutting up babies and selling their body parts. This IS human sacrifice and any that would call themselves “Christian” and support this are an insult to God every time they say they are “Christian.”
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 – “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
No true Christian would tell sinners it is ok to live in sin because God loves them. It is true that God does love them, but per Proverbs 13:24 – “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.” So yes love them, but in that love tell them that if they do not stop living in sin, no matter how painful it is for them to stop, then they will not make it into heaven.
1 Corinthians 6:9 – “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived….”
If we are awake we will do what is right in the Lord and put away from us those that deny God.
2 Thessalonians 3:14-15 – “And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.”
2 Timothy 4:1-5 – “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
Matthew 5:10-12 – “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
