God, apparently. But glad to see that some churches have caught on. The Hot ‘New’ Church Growth Method notes that more conservative churches are growing faster than Leftist ones.
We must remember that religions can grow or shrink with bad doctrines or good. If growth was the sole arbiter of soundness then Joel Osteen, Steven Furtick, Mormons, Muslims, etc. would be good people to go to. But in our culture today, the “Christian” Left churches are doomed to shrink because they are indistinguishable from the world. Why go to them for “doctrine” that is indistinguishable from the perversions, radical feminism and political correctness of college campuses, the mainstream media, and entertainment industries? People can get God-mocking heresies for free 24×7. Why waste time and money going to the “Christian” Left for more of the same?
1 John 2:15-16 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.Jude 4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
James 4:4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore, whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Revelation 20:15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
