  • In this letter, I wish to address the issue of why the church in America is not growing but rather seems to be fading before the rise of humanism and materialism. This is because many christians here in America have forgotten or ignored our basic calling or structure of what we're supposed to do, the is to bear fruit. This is a universal law for all that is in existence in the universe and the kingdom of God.
    In Genesis chapters 1 and 2, Father God created the heavens and the earth and all that therein is. Each form of vegetation, trees, grasses, flowers, bushes, each form of animal, bird, reptiles and water creatures was created to specifically reproduce and increase its own kind. This is referred as the law of seed time and harvest. This is because Father God's desire is for all of nature to increase and multiply.
    This is to be one of the foundations of the church. Many Christians in Asia, Africa and elsewhere have caught on to this and are watching their ranks increase. This principle is found in Matthew 13:1-23. This is why the church in places likes Korea, China and Indonesia is growing and expanding. This reason is also why Christians in northern and central Africa are being killed. They are not asking us for help but only that we pray for them.
    We here in America are being seduced at an alarming rate into complacency and materialism with the philosophy of 'Christians keeps your mouth shut' and be respectable. Don't upset the nice dead little social world. Then we wonder why our ' nice little church programs' are not drawing anyone and why all of our laws and social programs are ultimate failures no matter how much money we throw into them. This is because human nature is a fallen nature and cannot rise above itself.
    Christianity as we know it in America as long as it follows this course is on its way to the sleep of death. This will not be allowed by Father God and must not be permitted by us. Let me say that not as long as I'm around. I've got a big mouth and I'm going to talk about Jesus long and loud and I really don't care who likes the music.
