Christianity in Crisis
by Joseph Y. Lee
To the Brothers and Sisters who are faithful in Christ
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord
The Universal Protestant Christian Church is in a crisis.
Here is a list of problems:
1) It is my observation that there is no more church
growth in the United States and South Korea. Most
churches basically steal other members from other
churches, and I have seen this happen when I was
an undergraduate student at Berkeley and a graduate
student at Irvine. Also, the members in the church are
guilty of church-hopping. Sadly, there is a lot of
competition among other churches.
2) The church is compromising in terms of its moral
standards regarding issues like homosexuality, abortion,
and divorce. The church is becoming more guilty of the
no-Lordship heresy. 80% of all Americans will say that
they believe in God, and yet 50% of American men say
that they are willing to sell their wives for $1 million. The
no-Lordship heresy is the biggest heretical threat to the
Universal Protestant Christian Church.
3) The church is facing fierce competition from Mormons,
Jehovah's Witnesses, Muslims, Catholics, Buddhists, Hindus,
the Boston Church of Christ, and the Unification Church.
4) The church appears unintelligent and inane. Other words,
most Christians do not know the Bible. Sadly, most believers
do not know how to defend their Christian beliefs intelligently
5) The church concentrates on entertaining people instead of
actually worshiping God.
6) The people in church do not work as hard as they should.
They do not seem to care about the church. Some go to
church only once every two weeks.
7) The church is divided and is not united in one spirit. See
list #3 and #1.
Let's pray for the church.
Thank you for your prayers.
Grace be with all those who incorruptibly love our Lord
Following the will of God,
