The message the world hears from the church in America is confusing. Many of us have drifted so far from biblical teaching that those seeking our help cannot find it in the church. The picture of God we present is so removed from biblical truth that even our own children are without foundation and are leaving in great numbers. I do not believe the non–churched world has rejected biblical truth, but rather have never heard the compelling, unfiltered gospel truth preached with love. When we discard the biblical text and do not teach it to our people we give away the power to truly help those needing the church. The church must make Her own peace with God before the world can hear the voice of God from the church.
