Attention Word Slingers readers: Beginning December 11, 2019, all posts will be available at Thank you for reading Word Slingers!

Recently, a friend sent me a sermon and asked what I thought of it. It was from a demonization that has had a lot of upheaval in the past decade.  Nevertheless, I watched about 10 minutes of this message.  That’s all I could stomach.

In 10 minutes this “pastor” told adults in the congregation that children have a better grasp of morality than they do.   He said the morality of 60 years ago has vastly changed from the morality of today, and hurt feelings is a bigger sin than sexual sin. He also eluded to the idea that only certain sections of the Bible is truly inspired and the rest is just the interpretation of men.

This pastor talked about how important polls were.  He gave polls more credence than the Scripture itself.

And to top this all off, he went through the percentages of their church, and out of 17,000 active members in their church 742 of them lived in a homosexual lifestyle of some sort.  There was no data for how many were living in heterosexual sin outside the marriage relationship.

I finally had to turn off this broadcast. My heart was so full of anger and sadness all at the same time that I could not handle it.  My whole attitude changed because of this.

This “church” spits in the face of the commands of God. It made a mockery of the Scriptures, and the thing that hurt the most is that tens of thousands of people are blindly following this church’s teaching with no thought for truth. As a result, they very well could be headed straight to the pit of hell.

Here is why this is happening.

Parents:  You are not leading your families well.  More particularly, MEN, you’ve neglected your responsibility so, therefore, you’ve allowed wolves to creep in and take captive your families.  We need our men to move back into the role of spiritual leadership. Yes, I’m talking to you and me both! We’ve got to stop!  Stop focusing on so many other things. Your kids are right in front of you.  Here is the best place for me to start.

LEAD THEM. Be the servant that will give up your life for them.

PRAY WITH THEM. Take time each day to pray over them. They need it.

TALK MORE. Phones are going to be the death of us! I know. I’m guilty. Just ask my kids. They want to talk more, and there will come a time when they won’t want to talk. What’s wrong with me?

GET IN THE WORD MORE. My tribe needs me to be in God’s Word more! They need to see me in it. I need to lead by example.

BE MORE INVOLVED IN YOUR CHURCH. What is happening at your church is going to matter in years to come. Good or bad. And if you’re involved, you can help make sure it’s good stuff that is happening at your church.  Be PRESENT.

My prayer is that my heart changes. I need Jesus more than I need anything else. I really need to be focused on things that are eternal.

I am my biggest problem!  You are your biggest problem! We need to stop focusing on me and start focusing on Jesus and what HE WANTS!

God help me!
