    I’m reminded of Isaiah chapter 53.

    “He is despised and rejected by men,
    A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
    And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
    He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.”
    (Isaiah 53:3)

    Editors: I didn’t mean to make a sweeping, generalized statement about mega churches as I have attended many excellent ones that are preaching the whole counsel of God. I should have prefaced with those that are ‘Seeker Sensitive’. When the Gospel isn’t preached but only an ear tickling ‘sermon’ followed by an invitation to come forward then the end result of false conversion.

    Pray for all of the Gospel Preachers, the street preachers, the Missionaries and the newly saved Christian that is on fire for the Lord. Pray that the Lord will protect them while their is is still time to see souls saved. America is in great danger of losing our freedoms, Constitution and way of life. Satan wants our souls and he iwants our obedience and worship. He is making his move to change Gods Creation that will worship him. Pray And tell the world about The Love of God. (John 3:16) oh how He loves us! Even so, come Lord Jesus!

  5. Jen,
    Of course, altar calls, in and of themselves, are not wrong, nor are mega churches (in and of themselves); but if the Gospel is not presented, as you stated, then true conversion may not happen. The problem here isn’t about altar calls or size of churches (which can be good or bad) but about whether God’s Word is taught and the Gospel is preached.

    Well unfortunately, this is how I have observed altar calls in mega churches. It has nothing to do with substitutionary atonement, repentance and grace but everything to do with the attitude of ‘come join the party’ thus creating a multitude of false converts.
