Me and my lovely wife have walked the deserts looking for the Truth of the Word perhaps 30 yrs or more. The deserts are a figurative expression of travel in our journey to find out who we are in Christ and our purpose in life. The journey took us from church to church never finding the Truth. Needless to say it was an objective failure. However I learned the Word on my own and it bore fruit after years of searching for the Father.
Along our journey I have come across numerous folks who are disillusioned with the church. Does not matter what church you go to, they feed the congregation a watered down gospel. Day after day and year after year, the hurt and the emptiness in our heart does not go away. This especially impacts the women because they are the weaker spirit and man destroyed them in their younger age. The wounds are deep and their cries are not heard.
They want to rid themselves of the wounds and stripes that men have caused. Adam in the Garden was told if he ate from the Tree of Good and Evil, he would die. Man was supposed to protect the woman but he did not. So, since the beginning of time women have been subjected to sexual immorality and other abuses. What really bothers me is that they blame themselves and carry that guilt for a long time. Sometimes the pain of guilt never heals and the wounds hidden in their hearts are never healed. So they search for Christ and all they find is milk and more milk year after year. They sit in the pews and are never taught who they are in Christ.
The Pastors do not teach that the woman is the church, nor do they teach the men who they are in the Word of God. Do not be disillusioned, please spend time reading and studying the word on a daily basis and the hurting will disappear in time. Be faithful and obey His word. The church has no empathy, most just want money for their buildings and warm bodies in the pews. Do not let them tell you that you don’t have enough faith. I have been around people that have been in the church for 40 yrs, some do not even know what it means to be saved. That is a tragedy.
