Behold the sea. A sea of churches.
Satan need not give out false words, but only a sea of trivial ones. Above is a map of his trivia-production in Kansas City. Each red dot is a location marker. These locations are factories. Here they manufacture downloadable sermons, worship bands, altar calls, fresh commitments, tangible changes, youth programs, parenting classes, mentors, life coaches, summer camps, motivational speakers, integrated families, party platforms, spiritual leaders, devotional materials, social causes, ministry opportunities, pooled resources, city projects, urban renewal, coffee shops, church leagues, life applications, driven purposes, quiet contemplations, Jewish roots, Bethe Moore studies, bible highlighters, committed dads, hope-filled mothers, promise keepers, third world trips, loving communities, service projects, food pantries, gymnasiums, gardens, day schools, support groups and small groups — all of which is consumed weekly by hoards of hungry worshipers. The billowing waste that is pumped from these factories goes directly into the atmosphere and leaves the world swimming in an antichrist smog. This is the air we breath. Our air comes from billowing stacks of antichrist trivia.
In this sea of antichrist trivia, the follower of Christ seeks the location where the words of Christ are clean and pure. It really is not so hard, for in this sea of noise, the voice of Christ stands out. He is heard easily, for his sheep hear his voice. They hear him clearly, unmistakably and acutely with keen ears (ears wrought by the Spirit).
Jesus is the air of heaven, he is that Word, and the Word of Christ fills the lungs of his kingdom people and they sing out from their chest the Trinitarian doxology. In this antichrist world, the Spirit of Christ is not undone. Christians do indeed find Christ-centered churches. They survey the sea of Satanic-Trivia and hear through it. They do not use their eyes, they use their ears. The voice of our King is not hard for us to hear. But it takes ears–ears that have been made for hearing.
