Christians: Do you agree that the greatest failures in the church today is...?

(1) we are disobedient to the command to "STUDY" in 2 Timothy 2:15 (indicates lack of faith in what is best) - AND - (2) too many "christians" do not trust the Scriptures as authoritative and all-sufficient in the world today?

My takes as I see it...your comments ???

    true very true they just want someone to tell them what they want to hear:

    1Ti 4:1-3 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (2) Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; (3) Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

    Not really,for the real reason is because most of my Christian preachers want things their own way and not my way is the real truth.-Jesus Christ

    For greater fullness of graces and greater glory in heaven,

    Explore and discover the many gifts of APPARITIONS that God has sent for your spiritual guidance, enjoyment and enrichment ,for as in Gods PIETA PRAYER book, great are the heavenly treasures within these gifts.

    Pray the holy rosary for world peace and for all of Gods children to pray the holy rosary, and here is a blessing and a our father prayed just for you, with a loving hug from Jesus Christ for all of gods children.

    Carry a Holy Scapular on you at all times and you will be saved.

    When Paul wrote that most of the Christians even the devout ones could not read. And the bible was not completed. J/W's study and study and study and still don't know Jesus. I think the gospel is pretty simple and easy to understand God wanted to make it easy. We complicate it with the doctrines of man they change like the wind. God never changes. Jesus is The LORD.

    I think the greatest failure is that they're following a dead religion that predicted the world would end in the 1st Century AD, and was never intended to be followed for thousands of years...

    to rewrite the bible to make more sense.

    Many OT books were written almost 4000 years ago.

    Most NT bookswere wrttien 2,000 years ago.

    Time is ripe for a new sets - TMNT "the modern new Testament" (not "The Mutant Ninja Turtle".)

    completely a wrong approach.. Church itself is a great failure.

    To trust the so called scripture, you first need to cheat yourself.

    So, I say failure of church is your success.
