Is Jesus Knocking on the Door of Churchianity Americana?

  • Jesus loved Peter & praised him highly (Mt. 16).
  • Then Peter tried to help Jesus through pragmatism.
Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.” — Matthew 16:23

#ChurchianityAmericana needs to be rebuked, not unto destruction, but for the sake of repentance & restoration.

  • The prodigal pragmatists should return to the Father w/o excuses.
  • The Father is gracious & his ways are wonderful.

Jesus offers this loving promise in Revelation 3:14–22

As Many As I Love… I Rebuke & Discipline

As Many As I Love… I Rebuke & Discipline

As Many As I Love… I Rebuke & Discipline

Yes, it may will mean great loss of wealth & power & safety… but as Jesus did for the joy set before him, so go we.
