Repost: Going Far Afield For Fresh Meat

Alert: Busy week after the car show. Can’t take time to write. Just Re-Runs. Business as Usual here in Calvarytempleland.

Definition of Fresh Meat: innocents and con-artists we lure into our church under the propaganda banner of Love/Virtue/Integrity. The further afield We go, the godly-errr we think Us are.

Ahem. Realistically, we are tokens on the table of the Gambling Man. Who is in need of Fresh Revenue for his coffers. Fresh Bodies to help turn the cogs of his giant Meat Grinder. Fresh Meat for sale at:

  • Local community events
  • Our basketball games here and in PA
  • Prison ministry
  • Juvenile detention system
  • Africa
  • DC: the cosmopolitan area filled with far from home folks

But God says, “Righteous art thou, O Lord, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously…For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee…Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart” (Jeremiah 12:1,6,10-11). “(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:18-20).

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
