Worldly Pleasures in Churches are Schools of Crime

In Bible Truths Unmasked, Rev. Dr. Finis J. Dake wrote: Worldly Pleasures in Churches are Schools of Crime

When children see the world in the churches they are many times turned against Christianity and go into the world when they leave home. I was one of those that rejected Christ for years because of these conditions, and things are infinitely worse in churches today than when I was a boy.

I was brought up in a nice, dignified church where I saw church members participating in activities that were not appropriate for followers of Christ. Many is the time I said, “If that is Christianity, I do not want it.” I saw my friends join church, get baptized, and formally accept Christ. I never would join the church. I first wanted to see if religion changed my friends. When I saw them live as they did before, I turned from such hypocrisy and sham and rejected the church for years, until I saw real Christianity in practice. Then I was not long in getting saved from my sins. Sinners are hungry for real Christianity and they will soon accept Christ if men live Christian lives before them.
I wonder how many great Bible teachers and scholars never came to Christ or fell away from Him due to the same reasons that Dake, himself, almost didn't become a Christian?

Good topic SB.

In my opinion, the numbers are high and not often talked about. As a child of God in these times, today's church repels me. Many are about boosting the emo "feel good" quotient and preying on that aspect. If you think about it, they no longer have to reject the church (small c) because sin is allowed there and becoming more the normal today. Many pastors simply allow sin in the congregations and don't deal with it.

As long as sin is taught as being accepted practice, you will have problems because that goes against what God teaches. After all, what is there to be saved from if you are a sinner. Why would you desire to become part of them because they really aren't different from the world? You can go to today's church and continue to sin all you want and feel good while you doing it.

Consider that today with lesbians and homos being ordained and preaching from the pulpit, how much more will those that seek be conditioned to partake and allow such activities that are not appropriate because the preacher is condoning the hypocrisy and is working part of it.

Mine says movies are schools of crime, too, in a nearby section.
