The church is a hospital sick people saying you have a problem with Dr. Tony and says the church is here to offer help to anyone who wants real time, to stop this is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evan, author, speaker, seen pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative, God can do amazing thing the church but only when it's healthy today.

Dr. Evans points out how some churches can actually do more harm than good and discusses how your church can avoid that fate.

Let's join him. This charge is namby-pamby's all nice and say this is what John 15 Doris statement 16 when John 17's balalaika when the last time Jesus made you do that. The law of the church doesn't make it dead men will know will be dealing with the Jays's. One of the universe and the head of the church on Miss Baines vision from God and the book of Revelation. Unlike any other book of the New Testament is a special blessing of those reading verse three read any written stamina palpable. Three. Because when you come on, God is not playing games that search a prophecy about the church, said God tells John what you see, Bible 17 the number of perfection. In other words, something seven means complete.

While this was written to the seven churches of Asia complete wanted to give its charge regarding function under the Lordship of Christ. This section of the devil. And that's why he begins the chapter, Jesus is letting you see that that's why 14 white like white like snow were aflame of the line that glowed like Jesus's Jesus church respond to the point of the message to the seven churches submitted Jesus. Only Jesus is the standard by which the people of God function and when the people of God function in accordance with standard church now will see a British person looking at some big clock that's our reflection on the official time of your time on your little plot, one big job and stop other people and say what time do you have Jesus in anyone's charm.

It's ministry it program. It's thinking though a lot of the churches so Jesus had several messages given to one church, and if any church takes all messages church that meets rather than the church beaten the devil now want to know something I want to be going for the seven principles between your standing annual state, 55 said that he would come the Christ, is very important. If you have not tried to make it you already made you the most important thing this church can do for you at one of its members teach you about the position in Christ because you don't think you will, you will not John.

I you already overcome the seven churches there now to pull over, in other words, the opposition, Bob practice possible to have a right relationship with God and never experience the Income down possible because you have not matched your provision with your practice.

What things every write a letter to the angel spiritual warfare is given by angel messages one to the charge at Apple since verse one of chapter 2 charge number one.

It is the lesson of love your perseverance and you cannot do evil. I know you put to the temple, the powerful and are not found to be false that you have perseverance have endured for my namesake and not grow weary.

I know you're pretty good look Bible Church box verse four.

I have this against you, and you have left your first love is the lesson that we must lesson number one is that if we want to see the risen Christ. Revelation chapter 1 operating in our church. We must program replace passion and a great program. This church believe all the right things that had little soundness pictures all of the right of truth, but it did have first love.103 we have here to reply Jesus Christ and it is possible to be a church with every program because we lose sight of Christ miss it is to pursue program and program replace Christ trip Christ if you like to take a stand for the truth but the truth should make no law and are enjoying your last priority of all doctoral program that is marriage. Most people to marry when you are married people do on a date not to get married, they got married they program the program a good time to keep him alive and so we will evaluate everything I do have a charge of valuing what to make sure we have not said why don't love you anymore, but don't worry.

Nothing much change work anymore.

I don't love you anymore, but I'm still not keeping the relationship the first message to the church in the city of Assist with the site center. The Temple of Diana, that was controlling the day's passion for Christ.

Whenever you spend more time doing your program that you do being in God's presence. Your priorities off and that's why the most important thing this church is going to do with the date, become a praying church because we are praying church.

We want to get God's attention to get God's attention don't make sense of the program. The program will produce rather than being in themselves. Dr. Evans will examine how the church even if under persecution can properly function without fear when he continues her study in a moment.

Secondly, to the Church at Smyrna. The Angel of the Lord of the Church in Smyrna Write the Verse, God, I Know Your Tribulation and Your Poverty, You Are Rich and the Blasphemy of Those Who Say They Are Jews and Are Not God. Do Not What You Are about to Suffer the Couple Cast Some of You That You May Be Tested, and You Will Have Tribulation 10 Days and I Will Give You the Crown of Life. It's a Lesson of Faithfulness to the Church at Smyrna When the Going Gets Tough When the Going Gets Top Don't Stop Standing up for Me Just Be a Convenient Chart Made up of Convenient Questions Only Serve Me When That Man Blessed Going through a Tough Time Going through Tribulation and Things Were Not As They Would like Standing in Jesus Christ Job of the Church Is Not to Please Everybody Else Job of the Please the Lord, and Sometimes Everybody Else Will like to Win Friends and Influence People. Chart Content Anyone Popular in Many Areas Church That Jesus Is Proud of and during Times We Will Not Bail out on the Same. We Live in a Day of Quitters People Jump Out Of a Marriage Is When the Time Gets Tough like Little Girls for Grandmother. Grandmother Had a Nice Thick Wedding Ring Wedding Ring. She's a Grandmother Boy Back Then When John Got Married. Those Wedding Ring Sure Were Thick yet Knowledgeable We Got Married.

Wedding Rings Were Made. The Last Day Where I Didn't Know He Would like to Quit but Come Back at the Place You Want to Know You Cannot Just Times Are Tough. Just Because Things the Hard Just Because Time Is Now.

The Day We Live in This Consumer Generation. People Come to Church When Anyone Leaves to Leave the Church and Join Another Church While That Church Is Not Ministry My Needs. Or Maybe Somebody Else's Needs. God Would Let the Church When the Going Gets Tough, Rather Than Be Submitted to the Authority of Christ.

That's the Call to Faithfulness. Thirdly Church at Pergamum. Verse 12 to Be the Church at Pergamum Right the Third Thing Is the Lesson of Compromise Where You Dwell, You Dwell with Satan's Army.

This Was Referred to the Throne of Zeus Throne Is Loose Was on a Hill in Pergamum.

And Remember, behind Every False God Is a Demon so He Calls It, Rather Than Calling It the Throne of Zeus. He Calls It the Throne Because Every One of the Last of My Name and You Did Not Deny My Faith Is My Witness, My Faithful One Was Killed among You, Satan Dwells against You Because Some Members of the Teaching of Bail Teaching Batlike Startling People of Israel and to Commit Immorality. You Also Have Some Little in the Same Way Hold the Teaching of the Nicollet Cultural Church Is One of the Compromising Church. The Church That Would Preach Sermons Verse Two. Expect to Live Right Lives Charge That the Project Temperature but We Don't Have To Live It Lives in Church. One of the Reason That We Are Not Saying the Compromise Want to Make When You Stand. People Are Going to Be on When You Say That Sex outside of Marriage, Sex, Marriage Is Something Popular Especially Today the 21st Century, but It's What God the Teaching of Promoting Trade and It Was Called the Church to a Standard, They Were Preaching the Truth Know the Basic Truth, Not My Name. Compromising Ministry Get Me Wrong Chart to the Hospital Sick People. Well, All Saying That If You Have a Problem. You Should Come to Church with Your Problem I Am Saying but like a Hospital Job of the Church That the Perform Surgery Not to Make You Feel Better about Being Sick. The Job of the Church Is Not Let You Occupy Will Let You Skip Surgery Because You Just Want to Be a Good Job of the Church. The Perform Spiritual Surgery.

People Want to Bring False Doctrine and Get It Set up in the Church and so Belo Destroyed Israel by Compromise by Lowering the Standard View, the Time, but, with an Attitude.

I Don't Mind the Scalpel to Say Amen Nice Things, Big Ben, I Heard a Man That's All a Man What That Means I'm Not Preaching Right Because Some Sermon Squirming Some Sermon on Make the Sweat Did Not Think That You Do That Some Some of the Mobile People Is a Well Well I Don't Think the Preacher Should Make If You Have Something about Your That Is Exactly How You and One of the Things We Must Compromise.

I Must Address in My Life. You Must Address It in Your Life, Because God Has Called Us to a Higher Standard and Everyone Is We Must Deal with the Issue of Compromise. The Church Is to Be Visibly Different Is Not a Popularity Contest for 20 to 50 for What Fellowship Has Light with Darkness Simulated You Want to Marry a Non-Christian Man Committee Only Man You Can File You Want to Save Them after You Get Married.

Bible Call That Compromise the Biblical Standard Is Not Radical of the Biblical Standard Is Singleness before, Stand, You Say, but That Is Not Known, but We Talked about Heavenly Places. We Thought Most of the Supernatural. When I Try to Be Normal with Front of Biblical Everybody Else When You Tell Your Kid When I Tell You, Everybody Else I Feed Everybody Else Not Provide a House.

Everybody Else. Everybody Else and You Know My Nerves like You Know Everybody Else. This Is Joshua Would Say That House.amounts of Your Compromising in Your Life Soon Stop Calling It Culturally Acceptable Stop Calling It Everybody Else Does It Say That Compromise the Debt Ceiling by God's Grace I Have Been Made over, so on. So We Want to See Christ's Body and Start Defeating Satan's Will, Dr. Tony Evans with a Call for All Believers to Stand Firm in Their Devotion to the Lord.
