JESUS IS IRRELEVANT
Modern Christians seem to always be in desperate search for relevancy. Grasping at anything to make what they believe somehow fit with current trends. This couldn't be a more daft pursuance. Christ's crucified, risen and substituted life for His people is in fact the most irrelevant event in all history. Here's what I mean: it is impossible to make this relevant to anyone in todays current thought process. Furthermore, Jesus has never been a relevant idea since the creation of the world. Everyone resists that truth. But truth doesn't have to be relevant. In all actuality, the most truly irrelevant thing is our corruption of making His Gospel less important than our church services, our giving, our various styles of worship, buildings, spiritual gifts and maybe most sadly, our behaviors. The list could go on and on. The church, overall, has gotten rid of preaching Christ centered messages in hopes that they can reach more people and create more community so that they can be relevant. Which really means they can have more numbers show up! Look around your church. If you see a large group of people, your pastor probably doesn't preach the Gospel every Sunday. Because if he did, there would be less of you there.
