Time To Stop Playing Church

Every Sunday, churches are filled with those who are simply” playing” games with God. They line up in rows to watch the “show”. If it is good enough, they stay and even come back occasionally. However, if it is not entertaining, they will drift off. Stop with the plastic smiles, the fake clicks, the backbiting, parading around with that Sunday mask and every time the church doors open mask.  Wake up people! You need to stop, we need to stop” playing church” and get serious. Good works cannot even get you into heaven!! Many in churches today are just playing church, pitting churches against other churches, have ministers hating on others, etc… Churches are becoming a playground. We have gotten so skilled in pretending, that we are not allowing the church to be a church. Truth be told we are playing church. Just because I didn’t mention your habit, that doesn’t mean you are exempt. The reason I say this is we are all human with flaws. Just look in the mirror. Jesus came for the sick…the broken…and the wounded. Who are we coming to church for?

Mark 2:17 ” When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

We have to do better. God is not please with ignoring the broken. We talk about the worldly people, but how we better if we don’t act? How can we expect them to come to Christ when they see we are faking it. If each one of us truly examine self for a minute instead of looking at someone else making judgment, we would understand.

I’m truly done…no more limits.. no more boundaries…no more plastic smiles.. no more playing church…I’m done. Jesus did not die so His people could play church and be comfortable doing it. How long will we ”play church” while there are lost souls to win.

There is no limit to God’s power displayed through His people if we could just stop playing church and start being the church!!!

  1. Great message. We do need to be serious about who we are and what message we are sending by our manner of life in and out of the church.

  2. I think you outdid yourself in this beautiful, touching indicting dialogue. So true and to the point. Congrats
    to you. Great job.

  3. Excellent! We are to reflect the love of Jesus and “stand in the gap”.

    Ezekiel 22:30, the prophet says on behalf of God, “I looked for anyone to repair the wall and stand in the gap for me on behalf of the land, so I wouldn’t have to destroy it. But I couldn’t find anyone.”

    Thank you for being you! Blessings to you!

  4. You are correct in saying those people are playing church. All we have to do is read the Old Testament and look at the prophets from Moses tell Isaiah Jeremiah etc. and see when the original Christians the Jews were playing church the real problem here is that most of the pastors in America Are preaching man, morality, word of faith, prosperity gospel. If the head is sick, the body is sick that’s what the Bible teaches. Yes, we’re all responsible for ourselves on the I can make my own self responsible to Jesus Christ but the problem in America starts with poor pastoral leader ship , and there’s only a few strong pastors. They’re willing to call out these people. A lot of this problem started with the building of these big buildings with the rock ‘n’ roll bands, which by the way, I love the music but when you have a huge building you become a slave to it, and TR all the responsibilities along with it, and then the word of God is not preached because most people don’t want to hear the truth and the real word of God , Francis Chan is right tear down the big buildings which you will when you preach the truth because people are not gonna come to hear the truth most people the gospel of Jesus Christ start smaller churches where the guy whole gospel is preached then you’re not playing church thank you for your article You are correct most people are playing church but let’s get the solution in the real problem correct thank you so much .
