I Think God loves… Simple.

“This is what the Church should be doing.”

Was the basic premise of the blog I read recently. They author was trying to explain, how the church has gotten off track, and in the first short paragraph he used these words…

  • Missional
  • Spirituality
  • Abstraction
  • Enlightenment
  • Rationalism
  • Reductionism
  • Utopianism
  • Consumerism
  • Programism

I don’t think it’s that complicated! It can’t be! How could you explain that to a pastor with the equivalent of a 3rd grade education in the up country of West Africa? Answer…You couldn’t.

I think God love the Simple

I think the purpose of God’s church and His plan for His people is simple. Simple people are the one’s He uses. So, it must be simple for the simple (Like me) to get it.

  • Love God with all you have
  • Love others with all you have
  • Help People..Find, Follow and Be Like Jesus

Now, if what you are doing is making that happen. Go back, and check how you are doing it, and change it. But don’t complicate it. Just feels like the simple God, gets lost in all that.

Just my view…From the simple spot!

  1. No argument on this end Artie.  I do think we have made things so complicated. we have programs out the yazoo when all people want to know is “do you care about me?”  Love God…Love People…Make a Difference. That is our mission.  In reality, there is nothing wrong with being simple.

      Thanks Bill. We have to remember, the Gospel and the church is for every tribe, nation and tongue. If it’s to hard for a 3rd grader to understand, then it’s too hard!

  2. Amen. People want to know they are loved…it is so easy to get caught up in all the activities of the church and forget the simple reason why we are there…love on people.
