Today on truth matters with medical Dr. Cheryl Davis, she examines the reasons for the end time church is suffering a lack of vitality and drifting aimlessly from his true love. Ephesians 525 says that Christ loved the church and gave himself for the church church love Christ nurse Dr. Davis on part one of the last days church in the last days, I'm compelled by the Lord say the church is losing its effectiveness. When I say the church. I mean, the bride of Christ in America is losing its effectiveness. In a recent survey published on CNN, April 13, 2019 in the US.
No religion is in a statistical tie with evangelicals and Catholics of those in the US that consider themselves Christians, only about 18% in 2002, said they attend church regularly.
That is down from 20.5% in 1995 regarding church growth.
The Assemblies of God report church growth over the last number of years, largely due to worldwide growth. Specifically, the Southern Baptist convention which has a more mature data set reported in 2016 that the number of churches grew by 479 1% increase over 2015, the number of churches in the southern Baptist convention has increased over the last 18 years. Although the number of churches, group membership declined by .51% which is 77,796 people baptisms declined by 4.89%, the Southern Baptist convention is currently at its lowest number of baptism since 1946 and the lowest membership since 1990 Southern Baptist convention has lost 1 million people since 2003 Lyford Pres. and CEO Tom Rayner said it this way, it's clear that evangelism and discipleship are waning. I don't believe it is due to the lack of opportunities. The instead it is a lack of engagement, the Southern Baptist convention president open the convention almost 2 years ago with the need for spiritual awakening. The most alarming thing. Overall, is that at the turn of the 20th century. In 1900 there were 27 churches per 10,000 people in the US in 2000. They are now 11 churches per 10,000 people so you might ask the question why the decline is not a reflection of Christ is a reflection of the church.
The church has a heart problem.
It has an inner problem. Ephesians 525 says that Christ loved the church and gave himself for the church. The how does the church love Christ today Paul describes these times in his letter in second Timothy when he describes the last days but before I go on I do want to acknowledge that no more prophecies need to be fulfilled before the second coming of Christ. We are living in the last days. Paul says in second Timothy chapter 3135.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous posters proud blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent fears despises of those that are good traders 80 high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God having a form of godliness, denying the power thereof from such turn away what kind of power do I mean the Greek word, Dumas is used 120 times in the New Testament it means strength, power or ability from Dumas we get our English words dynamite or dynamic. Dumas refers to inherent power power residing in ethane by virtue of its nature, or by which a person or thing exerts and puts forth we find this power many times in the New Testament, Matthew 2229 Jesus tells the Sadducees you are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. Matthew 24 and 30 then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the people of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. This is been truth matters with Shirley.
