IOA- SUNDAY, SEPT. 14, 2003 ........ Your church can make big difference against nation's violence, moral ihave a problem with orga- nized church- es, said the troubled baby-boomer, who in better days had been part of a IbfledJons on church going faJ~ family. He then went on to explain R0ge Campbell that he has found no fault in God but has seen many inconsistencies in members of churches so he rejects orga- nized worship. Are there hypocrites in churches? Absolutely - no question about it. Jesus said there would be tares growing among his wheat (Matthew 13:25). Since the tares represent counter- felts of the real thing, they symbolize hypocrites. When hypocrisy is revealed in churches it should remind us that our Lord's prophecy was true. Churches are made up of imperfect people: sinners who have become the undeserving recipients of God's love and grace. Still, the gatherings of these feeble forgiven ones are part of God's plan to enable them to reach the world with the good news of his love. It is, then, hypocritical to hide be- hind the hypocrites, claiming we are for God but against churches. "I will build my church," said the Lord (Matthew 16:18), so we should not be surprised to fred church officers named in the Bible: pastors, deacons, elders, etc. The plan for effec- tive ministry in the church in- cludes divinely revealed orga- nization. Some feel order in a church service is too restrictive, too formal for faith to grow and express itself, arguing that one is better off worshipping alone or in small groups that aren't bound by any fixed or- der such as is usually found in churches. But this view ig- nores the fact that God is orga- nized. Have you noticed that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west every day?. That the seasons Come and go with precise regularity? That the universe functions so orderly that the laws of mathematics and other sciences can be ob- served and used to make com- puters and other wonders of invention work? "God is not the author of confusion." - Paul "God is not the author of confusion," wrote Paul to the members of the disorganized and unruly church at Corinth (1 Corinthians 14:33), calling them to a more orderly pattern of worship and life. Tyrants know the liberating power of faithful people gath- ering regularly to worship, where pray and encourage one anoth- ple meet er, so they have historically tried to stamp out such prac- tices. Dictators always fear dy- namic faith. In her article, "Caesar's Seminary," Mindy Beiz, World Magazine's reporter in Nan- jing, China, exposes and con- demns the government-im- posed restrictions on preach- Ing, prayer and hymn singing in campus meetings at Nan- jing Seminary.. Why restrict preaching, praying and singing?. Because these acts of worship enlist And the power of socieW. There are the tide of both here and world.
