Churches Of The Dead

21 May

Churches 0f The Dead…

Proverbs 21:16 says this: The man who wanders off from the way of understanding will dwell in the congregation of the dead.”

The Hebrew here is fascinating. The word for “kahal” which, translated into Greek, becomes “ekklesia,” which means “church.”

So it could be translated as this: The man who wanders off from the way of understanding will dwell in the church of the dead.

This is relevant to our day as we witness more and more churches and denominations wandering away from the Word of God in order to follow the ways of the world and the dictates of the times.

In doing so, many have even embraced what the Bible clearly calls an abomination. They’ve wandered off and so it’s no accident that these same denominations have largely become the churches of the dead.

It’s true of churches and true of people. All the more, in a day of wandering off and apostasy, you are the one who holds to God’s Word in everything. Be that person of no compromise, and you will never end up dwelling in a church or life of the dead.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

Have you in any way wandered off the path of God’s perfect will for your life? Today take the steps you need to get back in the center of His will and calling.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
