What’s A Seeker Friendly Church?
What is a ‘seeker friendly’ church? A seeker friendly church is a Christian fellowship where anybody, living any kind of lifestyle can come regularly and never hear the correctional or reproving aspect of God’s word. As a result of having never heard, the parishioner does not have convictions about any sins that might be prevalent or obvious in their life. The word of God is a two edged sword, it cuts in righteousness and judgment. The word was written for reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. The Holy Spirit is exactly who He is. The adjective describes the noun. He is the ‘HOLY SPIRIT’. This is not His name. It’s who He is. He’s Holy! If a church never addresses the sin and consequences of same sex marriage, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, gossip, lying, verbal, physical or sexual abuse and many other workings of the flesh, that is a “seeker friendly’ church. They are either afraid to lose members, offend people, or they just want everybody to like them. Ezekiel says, “ if you find a brother at fault and not warn him, the blood of that person will be required at your hands”. Ministers cannot afford to compromise the word for the sake of making people comfortable in church. If they are truly operating in love, they will tell the whole truth. To tell the truth in love is not being legalistic or pharisaic, it is a gesture of God’s love in that He would that none perish but all would come to repentance. True believers are set apart for sacred use, not for the perpetuation of sin. Be careful of this great deception that is creeping into the church. When your ministry gift only encourages you and tells you how great you are, and gives nothing but motivational messages, look out, danger is approaching. The dinner plate should not consist of desserts only, we must balance our diet with vegetables as well.
