10 Signs of a Carnal Church

Finding a worldliness free church these days can be disheartening. There are so many crooks and devils pastoring churches these days, it can be a chore finding a service that will meet your needs rather than tickle your fancy. The bible tells us that the Devil can transform himself into an angel of light and his ministers into ministers of unrighteousness. Why in the world would a person desire to be in a church that is full of unrighteousness and carnality? Why not just club, party, and hang out in the world where that stuff belongs? I don't understand why people even involve the church of God in their wickedness. What is the point? If you are in sin, then why practice sin and claim him?

But we see the church morally declining because of the leaders that are put up by carnal people. It's not just the Pastors fault, but it's the people that heap upon themselves these teachers, desiring to live worldly and carnal while claiming the God of our salvation. Let's explore the 10 signs of a carnal church so that those of you that are really searching for a worship house will not have to sit through multiple takes of foolishness to make a decision. You do not want to expose your family to the umbrella of foolishness that many of these churches are operating under. So, here are the 10 signs of a carnal church:


10. Cash Money Evangelists - When you find out that preachers like the "money cometh man" has visited this church or they are under them in any way, make that your first and last visit! Pastors that want money will bring these thieves in or set themselves under them to be in position to get rich. They will use the pulpit like an Amway presentation and bring in these money stealing evangelist to generate income. This is a trick because while the Pastor gets richer, the people in the church get dumb and poor. Some will prosper because they were already prosperous, but the average person will never get any more than they would have already gotten had they not financed foolishness. Beware, it's a spiritual pyramid scheme!

9. Financial focus - When you hear about offering and tithes before the offering period, beware. When you keep hearing about blessings, season, harvest, destiny, purpose, breakthrough, and especially FAVOR, then know you are being set up. All these things should pertain to soul winning, but when they are used as financial buzz words, then you know the pastor needs cash. The bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil and anytime money is overly emphasized in a ministry, there is evil following it. So, if they have a space on the visitors card to state your income bracket, proceed to the nearest exit!

8. Bad language - Any pastor that will use profanity in his pulpit is childish! That is one of the most carnal things you will ever see and it speaks volumes of the pastors lifestyle outside of the church. The bible says that if the tongue is out of order, the rest of the body is as well, so, you just got your sign on whether or not this is the person to bring your family under. And if the word for every Sunday is "SEX" then you know something is going on. PG-13 is too high a rating for Sunday morning worship. Why in the world would anyone tolerate a cussing pastor? Are we that desperate for a man to be over us that we would allow him to do what many of us don't do in front of our own families? What a shame and yet it is happening at an alarming rate.

7. Divorce rate - You can learn a lot about a ministry and what kind of attacks it is experiencing by the number of divorces that are occurring. When people in leadership of a ministry divorce, it's not the same as lay members divorcing. God hates divorce because it essentially says that people are giving up and not giving him a chance to reconcile them. Don't get me wrong, sometimes, the circumstances may call for divorce based on abuse, or one party not being willing to work it out, but when people just mutually agree that they don't want each other anymore, then that is what displeases God. And a church that is full of divorced couples is dangerous. Especially when it's in the leadership and they can't seem to work out their differences. And you never want to put yourself under a pastor that struggles with marital issues. When a man's focus is his church rather than his family, beware. He is a hound dog on the prowl, seeking gratification outside his own home! Believe That!!!


6. Sinful Alliances - When the Bishop or Leader of the parent organization of your church is brought in by the pastor, check him out. If he has a bunch of homosexuals flying around with him or he is carnal and devilish, then expect the same from your pastor. A man cannot sit under wickedness long, without being affected by it. Psalms tells us that the wicked walk around freely when the vilest of men are exalted. When men come under foul leaders, they are essentially saying that they would rather position themselves for a position in the organization than protect their church from sinfulness. After all, isn't being apart of a wicked organization saying that you are in essence in favor of wickedness? Be careful of this double standard. It's not about the organization in God's eyes, but it's about the people that the Pastor is suppose to be caring for.

5. Homosexuals and Lesbians - If you walk into the building and they are everywhere, leave! Any man that attracts homosexuals is a homosexual. Any pastor that allows homosexuals to roam freely in his ministry is probably a homosexual. Any man that defends the gay lifestyle is most likely gay. Any man that has a tolerance for the lifestyle is probably gay. Any man that doesn't get squeamish when they are surrounded by homosexuals likes the attention. People, why are we playing around with this? Why are we making this a non issue? It's an obvious problem. Homosexuals will not thrive in a ministry that does not condone them. They will repent and be delivered if the power of God is truly in a ministry. If the leader tolerates their lifestyles and uses their talents without delivering their souls, then he is a pimp and should be avoided. This one should be a no brainer.

4. Club Attire - If the Pastor wears an earring, don't get out the car! How can you ever have standards in your home and amongst your sons when the very pastor of the church is modeling vanity and showing he is a playa? Also, if people are walking around sexy in church and no one cares, then you know that church is not practicing holiness. I'm not saying that folks have to have crusty lips and nappy hair, but what I'm saying is that, butt cracks, cleavage, and belly buttons should not be outfit accessories! And please, let's not get on the women and not touch on the men. We see that too often where the women have to look like national geographic natives, but the men can prance around dressed like Superfly! Let's balance this out and just say, the church is not the club. We must not be intentionally sexy in the house of God. Tight fitting clothes and such just don't belong in God's house. God is the focus, so hide your meat!

3. Secular Remakes - If you visit a ministry and they welcome all the single people with Beyonce's song "single ladies" or they sing "reasons" to the married couples, then you know you are in a den of debauchery. If they had a memerial service for MJ, then you are in punkdom and need to leave! Any church that has to resort to old and new school secular jams to keep people interested is nothing but a bootleg club and they need to start stamping hands. What happened to the "NEW SONG" that David spoke of? Why are people singing the worlds songs in church? The secular artists that wrote them are complaining and they want their songs back on the radio and in the world where they can get paid for them, not in the church. What a shame.


2. Obamania - If you hear about the president every week and your pastor has gone off the deep end trying to weave him into every sermon on a weekly basis, then you know it's time to go! Our president stands for everything that Christ is against. How in the world do we make him a favorable topic for the church? Shouldn't we as a church stand against his policy if it conflicts with the Word of God? But we have pastors that have jumped on his band wagon and are using his fame and popularity to generate income and membership. They feel if they keep him the focus, people that support him will support them! And they will always say "now, i don't agree with all of his policies, but……..praise the Lord for blessing us with a black president!" That's like saying "I know he is a satanist, but praise God I finally got a date!" I'm telling you, this is a true sign of the times when the president gets more time than Jesus in our pulpits.

1. God said stay! - This is not for the visitors, but this is for those that have seen a moral decline in the church you have been attending. You have seen the pastor embrace the world, carnality, television and movie stars. You have begun to hear more about money than about Jesus. You hear more about the pastors wants and desires than the desires of Jesus! You see the youth partying and hip hopping during the service and it just does not agree with your spirit. Homosexuals are everywhere and no one cares anymore. You are being abused spiritually because you are not giving as much as you are told by the pastor or you are not with the new stuff that's going on. So, what do you do? You attempt to exercise your GOD GIVEN DOMINION AND RIGHT TO LEAVE. But when you meet with the pastor, he tells you that God said you can't???? He says that God has told him something that he won't tell you? In other words, you can't leave because something bad is going to happen.

Well, this is witchcraft manipulation in the highest degree. When you are afraid to leave, then you know it's not God. He has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and………..a sound mind. If the place you are worshiping is not spiritually sound, then that's the part that is not God and the fear to leave must be rebuked.

Listen people of God. We are in a bad state of the church right now. It's like the dark ages all over again. People think church is for the sinner and it's not. Church is the collective body of believers assembling together in a unified manner. Those that practice and condone sinfulness are excluded! Sure many are weak and need strength, but you can't draw strength from weak leaders! And for this cause many are not going to church anymore and would rather stay home. But God is faithful and I pray that you will make 2010 the year that you step away from that carnal headship and make a move of faith! Step out and seek the face of God for clarity. He will lead you to a wonderful place where the Spirit of God resides and the carnality of men is not. But you must take the step of faith first. Once you move, God will move on your behalf.

2Cor. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Jer. 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.

2Tim. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Matt. 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Jer. 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.


In His Name,

G. Craige Lewis

This is an awesome post! Very timely indeed. I attend a church where the talk is always on how the women are to dress, but as you said in your post the men are looking fly. I don't know any woman who doesn't want to look nice. Well, this is a post I will share and mark as one to re-read.

Blessings,
Evelyn

Latter Days Ministry said...

I agree with Evelyn. Awesome post! I just pray that those who name the name of Jesus start turning back to God's word for sound doctrine and stop pimping the Lord to make a buck.

Keep spreading the truth!

Nealreal said...

"I don't understand why people even involve the church of God in their wickedness."

Human beings are hard-wired to serve a god - they just don't want to follow the true God, therefore they convert the church and the things of God into their own God. A God that will let them sin and do their own thing. But as for me and my house, we will serve the true God whether we like what he commands or not.

Preach it til the pot whistles! Great message.

Pastor Sean Isaacs said...

Hey Craig, what a great post!

As I read through your points, my heart was sad and grieved, knowing that each point you made is true in so many ways.

These things are predominant and prevelant in many of our black churches; though many of them can be found among other races.

You should develop these points and put them in a book form. I believe this could be a great help to many.

If you need some help, reach out to me. I would be happy to help you get something like this published.

So many in our churches lack discernment because they have not received proper teaching.

Thanks for taking the time to write. May this article be a help to someone caught in this web of carnality and ungodliness!

Jenaee said...

Thank you SO MUCH Pastor for giving us this list and this message! It is SO needed!

Many, including myself, are still searching for a church home because we are encountering these types of issues and observing this UNGODLINESS!

I am going to print this list and keep it in my purse! LOL!

This is definitely a spirit-filled message from the Lord!

God bless you and your ministry!

blogomama said...

Great post - as usual! I would love to hear your view on the money generated from evangelism, specifically. Is it souls for sale? How do we distinguish

Anonymous said...

thank you for that G. Craige, it is a very sad thing when you can't even go to church for people wanting your money, wanting to parade around like a beauty pagent. Nobody wants to hear sound doctrine anymore, all you hear now is feel-good sermons designed to tell you about your "breakthrough", "this is your season" and all this other new age doctrine people preach in these pulpits. Continue to do what you do and expose these frauds for who they are.

Sebio said...

Praise the Lord! Im a hispanic brother who has been following your ministry for quite some time now. I see a lot of people that are in the same boat on there way back to Egypt, if not there already!!, There are Hispanics and whites, who are deceived by the very same tactics the enemy has used in the black churches. The Spirit of the Trojan horse is every where! We need to spend more time on our knees so that God can start dousing this wild fire! God bless you and your ministry in the Name of JESUS!

Chadrick said...

I agree with Pastor Lewis entirely because the truth he provides along with scriptures to back up what he says. I thank God I found me a good church where I am getting feed knowledge and understanding of the Word and being taught and equipped how to apply the word along with faith to my personal life. I had a situation where I was at a church before and I just wasn't growing. Don't get me wrong, none of the signs G. Craig Lewis mentioned was occurring. I just had to leave that's all. God bless Brother G.Craig Lewis and EX ministries.

Brother Lewis,
Thank God for His Word delivered through you. My family is now in the process of searching through churches as we have recently relocated to another state. We are determined not to settle again for a church that is anything other than lifting up Jesus Christ. This really is a timely message for us! Thank God for you and His ministry through you. Keep on keeping on (as the old folks used to say!

mariannette said...

Thank you for the message. Just like medicine, sometimes it's hard to swallow, but you know it's good for you. There are some people who are uncomfortable in their churches right now, I hope they will read your message and make the break. God bless you and your family.

Nette said...

Awesome!!! My constant prayer is that the people of God will repent and turn from their wicked ways so He will heal our land!! The problem is not the sinners, it's the SAINTS! If we get it together we can be a light to the lost and people will be led to the Lord before His coming. Thank God for mercy, but the church is running out of time. Thank you Pastor Craig for not being afraid to speak the truth...keep on keeping on!!

NoHalfSteppin said...

Great post! Thanks for your ministry. You already know the infamous "don't judge" brigade are on the way! Obama said to hold him accountable & we must do so. The problem with the last admin was NO accountability & too many so-called Christian were too scared to speak up. It created is public credibility issues for Christianity. The truth is the truth. We as Christians must stand on it & for it consistently or we will become a public public hypocrites. Both Dems and Repubs have supported or either supports the gay agenda. All we have to do is a little research.

It was a shame when Bush was preached from the pulpit & it is shame to preach Obama from there as well. Christians should have learned something from the love affair over the years with the Republicans. Both parties have the same agenda, just a different animal as a mascot.

This is wonderful and I thank God for you being obedient by educating people who are ignorant to the devices of Satan. Blessings to you man of God for standing for the Truth and voicing it everywhere! There needs to be a large poster board placed all over on the highways of the United States for all to see!

perrygoodfellow said...

WOW!!! This is what I was needing to hear. I am currently in prayer about the church that I am attending. A few of your signs in this blog has really made me think about the need for me to find a church that will help me in my spiritual growth.
I recently purchased "The Truth Behind Hip Hop V" and just like the other 4 DVDs it was a tremendous blessing to my soul. I believe that you are a true man of God and I'd like to encourage you, continue to "Bring It" as the spirit of the Lord leads you.

Be Blessed, Bro Fred

Q. Terrell said...

Thank God for you,Bro.Lewis. the bible is being fulfilled, we have more church folk in the church than saved people, you hear all the time.
"nobody is perfect, everybody does something wrong" and "some people are too Holy" its time to wake up. Jesus is coming back, and he's coming for a perfect church.I believe the true christains are going to go back to going from house to house. From: Q. Terrell

heather said...

I would have to concur with
everything said. We are in a house church where we study the Torah, and yes, the new testament, because the 2 are 1!I keep having visions of there being more and more people out and about on Sunday mornings. Why? They are Not gonna be interested in church Anymore!!! and why would they? it's no different than the world, and worse because of all the 'good' people who are shadey. Thank God He has saved for Himself 7,000 others-as with Elijah. Thank u thank u thank. i have a burning hot heart for youth. I appreciate everything u do.

Bernard C said...

Brother Craige, as I has said many times before, I really wish much of the problems in the black church (why are we still using that term? lol) that you speak of, were untrue. It is sad. I have experienced Mr (money cometh) man while he was visiting a church I was visiting here in Cols, oh. As I was sitting there, I was wondering was I the only person there who felt like running out??!! lol I love what God is doing with you...keep going!!!

kirabo said...

Thanks pastor Lewis, this is the message that the church allover the world needs to hear, thanks for all you are doing for the kingdom of God.....all glory to God. i am in Uganda and i must say that the church is being abused because of our leaders who have lead many astray......many are no longer preaching about Jesus, its now all about money and money, who has the biggest church building, and witchcraft by some "so called" pastors. There are now rumours of pastors engaged in sodomy...,really sad

i always read your posts and i must say am always blessed and encouraged. God bless you and your ministry!

Loise said...

Hi, my name is Loise and I'm from Kenya. I've been having a lot of trouble accepting a 'revolution' that's going on in my hometown. They turn secular music into 'gospel' music by adding Jesus in it...they say it draws people who would otherwise be in the club/people who have before been looked down upon by the church, to church. But i just do not see how you can worship God with those songs...it's just not right!! Another reason they give is that music is from God..was created from God so they are taking it back from the devil. I just want to SCREAM in outrage but i just rededicated my life to Christ and I am quite rusty when it comes to scripture...could you please give me some verses that I can use to advise my friends with...This just has to stop!!

Sabrina said...

AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! I pray peopIle will stop tolerating these foolish churches. I am so greatful that there is a church somewhere for those that are tired of this. For those that desire a real place of worship please check out Arlington Bible Church in Arlington, TX. You don't have to stay at home every week in misery and you don't have to give up on God and His people.

Anonymous said...

As I was reading I was reminded of a scripture I'd read previously:

Malachi 1:6, 2:17, 3:15
A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am the Father, where is my honor? And if I am a Master, where is my reverence?

You have wearied the Lord with you words; Yet you say, "in what way have we wearied Him?" In that you say, "everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, And He delights in them," or "Where is the God of justice?"

So now we call the proud blessed, for those who do wickedness are raised up. They even tempt God and go free.

My prayer is for ALL of us who label ourselves Christian to come to see God's truth! The eyes of our understanding being enlightened, that we may know what is the hope of His calling, and the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe.

I’m extremely blessed by your strong position on homosexuality in the church, but I’d also like to make a reference from my own church experience. Before the proliferation of homosexuality was as profound as it is in the church today it was heterosexuality. The adulterous deacon was replaced by the homosexual, the hoeing choir director was replaced by the homosexual, the molesting pastor was replaced by the homosexual and the lusting usher was replaced by the homosexual. I believe the Lord has given you great insight into the allowance of the sin of homosexuality in the church. But please let’s not replace the homosexual with another sexually perverted demonic sin. Let’s deal with the source and the not just the manifestation. Keeping doing what you’re doing, we’re praying with you that the kingdom of darkness will be destroyed.

Grace & faith be unto you,
LaJuna

G. said...

LaJuna,

Of course there is "heterosexuality" going on in churches and that's not a good thing. However this blog is the 10 "signs" of a Carnal Church. That means there are obvious things that can be "seen" to alert you that more is going on. You can't see the things you mentioned as clearly as you can see homosexuals and lesbians that are open with their demeanors in public. Of course if you spend time there you may notice it, but we are discussing obvious signals and flags to keep people from even committing to these dens of debauchery.

God Bless You,

G.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for this bit of godly wisdom. This is so needed today. It is as if people have lost their minds (literally) when it comes to some of these obviously carnal churches and leaders.
Although I know you can't address every sign of a carnal church, I would like to add that if you notice during your visit that the pastor is flirty with you or others, or if he boasts that he's does not answer to anyone but God (not trustees, not other godly leaders, not anyone), then run for your life. He means it, and he and the church are headed for ruin. God bless you Pastor Craig.

KParks said...

This is a great post...since I have been following your messages, my eyes continue to open. I sometimes find it hard to believe that people can stay in these churches or continue to follow the pastors that indulge in all of this.

Pastor Lewis, you are a true man of God and I appreciate you. Your ministry has truly changed my entire thought process and my walk with God. Thank you. You are always in my prayers. God Bless!

Elder Lewis,

Please make a video on this! It needs to be videotaped! I'm praying that we can get you to come to our university and speak to the students. I've been showing your videos for the last 2 months with tremendous attendance and responses! Praying for you!

Interesting and informative. Thank God not all blacks in America think Borack Hussien Obama is a blessing to this nation.Obama and his administration compare the civil rights movement of Pastor Martin Luther King to the homosexual movement.This president supports abortion, socialism, homosexuality, does not recognize America as a christian nation,participates in Ramadan but not in National Day of Prayer in America.Thank you Mr. Lewis

ihsallthetime said...

Brother Craige, thank you for allowing the Holy Spirit to use you in standing up for the truth. This is second confirmation for me. Those who are filled with the Holy Spirit cannot be fooled. 1 Peter chapter 5 speaks of being lords over G-d's heritage, which many are doing right now. Also 2 Peter chapter 2 speaks of the false prophets among the people, privately bringing wrong teachings. The bible warns people, yet many have fallen privy to these people and are feeding Satan through these ministries. Well, no one can say G-d did not warn them. Again, thank you.

G Craig Lewis,

Holy Matrimony vs Marriage!

Alot of false preachers out there are preaching and showing example that marriage is something that means nothing. They are preverting what sex is for with "SEX" conferences, Baby Mama's, Wifes, and Girlfriends (All Members In the church), and Countless Divorce Rates.

I have been to two weddings and sad to say that both couples marriage was for selfish reasons!

I wanted to know if you were going to teach the church the real purpose of Holy Matrimony vs Marriage?

As one of Christ-Ones singles I would like an biblical explaination of what's the purpose of Holy Matrimony is. And If Marriage is what GOD planned.

Thanks Be Blessed

Great Post! I just wish you would post more frequently:) My co workers and I always get excited when a new post appears. Keep it coming, and God Bless all your efforts. I praise God I'm in a church that calls out sin, and preaches holiness and not money every Sunday. Thanks for being a true man of God who isn't afraid to cry aloud and spare not!

This is absolutely AWESOME. God Bless you Pastor Lewis for standing up and not being affraid to preach the truth. The church is under attack "Black Church". Keep preaching the truth about these hidden agendas. These Gays pastors and their gay agenda is out of control. Female Pastor/Bishops (1 Tim. 3:2) is not Gods order. Hip Hop/worldly music (1 John 2:15) in the church and ect. We are just doing what we want. We are flat out not following the word of GOD.... What happen to demons being casted out, deliverance taking place. Thank the Lord Jesus Christ for men like you and my Pastor that still preach the true gospel.
God Bless,

Thank you so much for this. A blessing indeed.

Brian C Thomas said...

Great post as always. The apostasy in the Church is prophesied in the Bible as one of the signs of Christ's return. With the way the church tries to justify homosexuality, supporting Obama (who supports gay rights, abortion, division of Jerusalem), we are certainly living in the last days before the return of Christ!

Michael said...

Hi Craige Keep up the good work of exposing the unfruitful works all around us. I have been listening to some of your older podcasts and do regularly read your blog and i pray that you dont stop getting deeper into the Word. Thanks for the encouragement and exhortation to righteous living.Ouch...the words have been hard but hey we receive the chastisement of the Lord with eagerness. Bring it on. You may probably agree with some of the truths in this article on "Gospel-Lite" http://7drizzles7.wordpress.com/2009/12/13/gospel-lite-shake-before-you-drink/

May the name oh the Lord be magnfied!

Indeed
True and sad
As about "Obamamania": it goes in the other direction, too. The evangelicals are viewed as a voting bloc, not as God's church (among others, not just the evengelicals, of course) on earth. Our Gospel has become too "American" and it shouldn't.
I am reading right now "Christless Christianity". The evangelical world is in big trouble

Yes this is what God has lead me to. I Live in DC. There's so much religion here. I just disassoiciated myself from a mega church and have been look at as a troubled person, cause of all the debauchery, worldliness, moneymongers,homosexuals,and 7th avenue fashion overtention. So this is what I'm an advocate for, Jesus the Christ! Oh yea' is his message being water down, and at an alarming rate. The real Alarm is about to Sound!!

I thank God for using you to expose the things that are going on in the church. Your article brought this thought to my heart; "Instead of people asking what must they do to be saved, they are running away saying they are better off on the streets." I used to feel the same way about how people view the church these days.

Again. I thank God for Ex Ministries. Stay prayerful and strong soldier. May God's blessings continue to girt your efforts and supply your ministry in Jesus' name.

The post was sent straight from Heaven. I was in a church once, that were full of women and a handful of men (you could count them on your fingers). I knew something was wrong, I just could not put my finger on it. I tried to find the Spirit of God in this church, but it was very dim. Lets just say...God will not leave you ignorant in any nonsense situation...ever! Oh by the way Craig, this is your cousin from Lubbock, Texas...Karen Austin. I love your ministry and your faithfulness to do what God has called you to do. May God continue to bless you and the ministry.

Pastor, I thought I was loosing my mind to see all the ungodliness that was creeping into the so-called church, because I know from the Word that most of what we are seeing is not of God! Divorce and re-marriage, loose dressing, homosexuality, earthly prosperity over eternal salvation? I didn't believe I would live to see it in the "church" but, there it is. I am in constant prayer for our pastor, congregation and the body of Christ at large that not many more of us will soil our garments and fall prey to this end-time deceit.

Mr Lewis, God has truly blessed you with the word of truth to tell his people. I 19 years old and my family doesn't agree on either side. I told my aunt about Deut22:5 about how men shouldn't wear women clothes like tyler perry and she said that the holy spirit can purify our thoughts. But I don't believe this I know your word that God has you speak is true and I want to thank you for following God's will so that we all who chose to listen may be blessed with this word. I also would like to know is their a college you went to to help further your knowledge in this because I want to learn more. Please let me know

Thank you for standing in God's word, and thank you for this post. I recently had a conversation about the RFID chip that is to be implanted in humans in the coming years. This has already been passed by the FDA as being safe. This chip is to be implanted IN the right hand or IN the forehead. I spoke about how no one should be getting this and I referred to Revelation, and a CHRISTIAN responded to me "we are to work WITH the world, this is what Jesus wants us to do to evolve." and I just felt my heart sink. I felt so sad that someone taught this to them in church, and they were decieved. Please continue to do the Lord's will. Bless you.

Lord Help us, our people (black)are perishing because of lack of knowledge. It was so disturbing to listen to the church followers applauding this man before he spoke. We keep looking to men instead of God.Keep up the excellent work G. Craig and yes it is lonely when your truly seeking the Lord unaltered. It's so refreshing to read and see your other supporters it confirms that I'm not crazy.

#10 sin is a body that dies, and shines no light needing the light of the world to be in you to save you so you will love all including the zoosexual#9,Christ never asked for money to preach at any time. #8, say you follow Christ, and do bad to your neighbor is swearing taking Gods name in vain.#6 Satan wants us to be offended about body parts. Swearing is not doing the things of Christ. The world is all about sex.#7,teaching a god of war that is unequal sending humans to eternal hell is evil. Hell is the absences of all things for humans who do not love their neighbor choosing the absence of all things, and death of the soul.We should not be divorced from Jesus who is the bride which is death. #6 sin it is not the sex.Churches not reaching the truth that is in the KJV, Satan wanted eternal burning for all of humanity. Thoughts of Satan in many churches including the Catholic Church. Catholic Church does not have the book of revelation keeping humans in the dark.#5 nothing wrong with homosexuality, zoosexuality ether, what is wrong is hatred which causes murder. Galatians 5:22-23KJV, you will know who is of God, and who is not. Those against the sexualities, public nudity, etc, does not portray the fruits therefore are not of God.#4,Sexy is not a sin.Being a body that dies is sin.Not have Christ in you loving your neighbor as yourself doing good to your neighbor even as you want good to be done unto you is sin,have no faith in God not pleasing God or your neighbor. We could go to church or anywhere with out a stitch of clothes on except a pair of shoes. God would still love us. Humans should still love too. We should have balanced teachings. Give Jesus all the praise, and glory for getting us ready to live in his father’s house keeping heaven peaceful, and joyous for all of eternity.#2, We should not make an idol out of anything.#1 The carnal mind comes from a body that does not have the Spirit of Jesus in us doing good to our neighbor. Moral decline is thievery, deceit, condemning; accusing hateful words creating murders hurting destroying. Sex, nudity is not moral decline. Humans that are talking more about money than Jesus are going in the wrong direction not laying up for ourselves treasures in heaven. To talk about Jesus is to teach his character, and have that everlasting loving character in us. When we do we will not condemn the zoo ether. A pastor who has you stay in his church through fear is of the devil. No pastor should say God said something to me I should not say to anyoneor say to whoever they can’t leave for that is denying freedom of choice. Fear is used by pastors, and fearing nudity is witchcraft too. Witchcraft is pharmaceuticals too. Fear is used to get humans to take all kinds of things they would never otherwise eat,upcspine, much better for whomever and best for all right now. All of us have sinned, and fallen short of the kingdom of God because we die makes us a sinner. Christ in us the hope of Glory, and we should work out our own salvation with fear, and trembling. That means we are responsible for us, not anyone else. Yet we are our brother’s keeper. We should do good unto the least of these our brethren and that includes the furries gays zoosexuals too.2Tim. 3:2 without natural affection wants to harm and not love, accuse humans and not give kind loving words. Wishing ill will saying all kinds of false accusations with fierce words to humans that are good not doing any of those things like the zoosexual who only have sex, and are keeping the whole law of God by being good to their neighbor .Legalize zoosexuality, bestiality whatever vain name you want to call it. The scribes, and Pharisees are the once after the meek zoosexuals furries, gays, nudists, third gender, etc, they are not wanting to break down anyone door but the writer of this page sure would like do that. I hope he would reconsider, and make peace all of them, and Have him tell me and the world when we does

Absolutely needed. A radio station stopped playing my song because he saw me post something on my facebook about homosexuals. A record company executive told me that i need to be sure that I watch what I say so that I would be liked. Had I been their pawn. I would have had the biggest song in the nation this pass year. However I told the executive and the radio announcer that I'm called to live right and tell the truth and if the don't promote my record and play it then oh well. God is my Father

Thank God that someone is standing on the watch! This is most needful and intelligently written with the bible as your source. It is informative and godly persuasive to turn some who have adjusted to the darkness as a reminder of what light and truth really are! God is the same yesterday, today and forever will He always be holy!

Keep Truth Coming!

Thanks so much for the 10 signs for a carnal church. I thought I had found a home church and was enjoying the praise and worship as well as the sermons. I happened to go to the 12:30pm service one sunday and it was full of gays. I've stopped going to this particular church because it just did not feel right. These 10 signs have opened my eyes more so I know what to look for in my search for a home church. May the Lord continue to bless and guide you.

i am a Ghanaian, and in Ghana we having the same situation here. we have pastors who are just interested in fame, money and power and because of that these so called arch bishops, bishops and prophets are not preaching the truth. the poor have become a victim in the Ghanaian church because they are always deceived that God will give them visas to America. every preaching that goes on in our churches is all about getting a car, visa to America, promotion, money, marriage, babies and whole bunch of lies. these people are deceiving us and no one seems to say anything because if you try to say it you will be a threat to them. these wolves in sheep clothing are enriching themselves and their families.

i agree totally with your post.we are desperately looking for someone -godly - to identify us and we are not looking at what spirits that ministry might spill into our lives and families.my husband is a minister and he has been sucked into a ministry where the pastor and his wife are divorcees.i have watched this man whenever a woman walks into the room mock the holy spirit and start speaking in tongue to give notice that the woman was "fine" and have watched my husband laugh at this mockery.needless to say, my husband wanted dearly to be a part of this ministry and i had second thoughts.he went ahead and joined an now he has left me for another woman in the church and brags of his upliftment that he is experiencing under this pastor as well as the pastor that he is under..my husband has fallen into the mentally that position in the church is what is defined by how blessed a man or woman is.thank you for telling it like it is in this post and if you could , add us to your prayer list for i am still praying for the salvation of my husband , that hopefully god will bring him out from under this man and detach him from this ministry.

Jhughes said...

You are right position in a church makes no one higher or lower in the sight of God at all, and he should know that.

He should also know Because humans shine no light,and die means all are in need the spirit of Jesus in us to keep the whole law of God by doing unto others what you would want others to do to you, and love your neighbor as yourself. If position in a church determines rank that is idolatry , and whoever is wise should get out. That is the military way of thinking.

Dear Pastor Lewis,

Great man of God, may God bless your ministry...

I have one question.

Living in the city of Amsterdam, probably the gay capitol of the world, I see many homosexuals. It seems very much that often times they are attracted to me. So for this matter I would like to ask you this question:

As I found in your article named '10 signes of a carnal church' you stated the following: "Any man that attracts homosexuals is a homosexual"

Please confirm this with the Word of God.

Thank you for enabling me to comment, and for your interesting blog.

God Bless you,

Gary from Amsterdam

I'm glad you addressed this. I am 24 and I'm glad to hear someone telling the truth. Juanita Bynum visited my church and she made the statement (paraphrasing) that everybody say beyounce is the devil and all this but she is making her money and that everybody is hating on her, she said why don't we get businesses or sing than like beyounce; Are you serious? A devil worshiper? If I had not been listening to you I would be fooled like some others who was agreeing. I just could not believe she said this.

I want to praise God for the ministry He has blessed you with. 2 years ago, my wife came from Holland to the states with two of your vidoes. She put in Pt.1, maybe 20 minutes went by, and something attacked me by grabing on to my throat. Then later, she put in Pt.4, my lights went out for 2hrs in the house. I knew that was satan with his bigheaded self trying to discourage me after giving at least 12yrs of my life trying to get into the music world and almost my whole life for Hip Hop. I believe you have a beautiful ministry and I hope you continue to be obedient to the Lord to follow His will. I do have something I wanted to clear up though. I believe in your podcast #48 and the latest (10-31-10)you have mentioned about the hebrew isrealites that they call themselves gods, but their are hebrew isrealites that profess the name of God and Jesus Christ in hebrew also and they do not affiliate with the other group of "thugs" who use the same name as them. This is a site where the Lord lead me and my wife as to just to learn where we come from as his people www.hebrewisraelites.org. I know that you are a servent of the Lord and I will not doubt it because I know that the Lord would of shown me. But I felt in my heart that this I had to clearify. It's like you said "You Love Diversity",LOL. Please don't put me on blast because of this, but if you do, it's all good. I still love you in Christ Jesus. -TheBourneVictor-

Anonymous:You have Gods spirit in you,and the principalities of darkness in high places is infuriated like you would not believe hating every person who loves whoever like God loves. Jesus can fight, defeat Satan with the blood that he shed for us. This is why gays, and zoosexuals ,and many others are assaulted with words, and harsh actions like what is seen today, and throughout history.

I was hoping that you would also talk about those in leadership who follow after the Spirit of God and direct their sermons according to His will rather than their own will. Are there any courageous Pastors out there who will ditch their pre-planned sermons for ones that the Lord wants them to preach instead? This takes guts to fly by the seat of His pants rather than staying with one's own plans, and it will please the heart of God much much more...and that's WHO we are supposed to be serving right. Otherwise we might as well all stay home instead!

Jhughes said...

For you to discern the spirit of God one has to know the loving spirit of God. Not to know this,and whoever will follow any wind of doctrine. we are a vessel,and God is the maker of that vessel,and with Christ in us we have life in that vessel,and the spirit of that vessel is going to survive the light of God with that vessel being turned to dust. To many are relying on the vessel with out the spirit. These are the once who are lost not knowing within themselves who to follow.. When the light of the world is in you, You will know Jesus,and Jesus will know you. Jesus is lowly,and gives comfort to the soul. He preaches liberty to the captive, and breaks the bonds of those that are bound. He saves condemning no one. those that reject him condemn themselves. We must have him for Satan can externally look like Jesus in his brightness,but not be Christ at all. If one does not know how to discern Jesus in whoever, how will humans know the ultimate counterfeit? Christ did not give many sermons. Christ interacted with who he was talking with too. I do not see this in the way things are done. The sermon on the mount is the major one. I have supported Eddy Long. His heart opening up toward the gays means the love of God beyond understanding is in him, and devils are after him as a result. Devils will cause humans to lust to have humans want to devour another human in a cannibalistic way, judging others, circumventing Gods judgment. It is more than a prepared speech, it is what they say. If humans have not been taught to love their neighbor as themselves no matter what, and seek to teach others to judge when God alone is the judge,and neglecting to tell humans to seek our own salvation with fear, and trembling,and not teaching whoever to be right with God, and man not laying up treasures in heaven-is not doing the will of God in ,and not seeking peace on earth to live peaceably as far as it is possible with all men is not of God. Test the spirits to see if they are of God or not. If they go schizophrenic on you if you mention homosexuality or zoosexuality they are not of God.

I recently quit the church i was going to here in Zimbabwe. I was frustrated at the continuous mention of money, success, favor as you mentioned.

Jhughes said...

You have God in you to see this prosperity thing as evil. Those humans are seeking after a vain thing laying up for themselves treasures on earth, and not in heaven for it will be difficult for a rich man to get into heaven.

We should lay up for ourselves treasure in heaven,and pray that Gods will be done on earth even as it is in heaven,and Gods will in heaven is peace.Therefore Gods will is for us to seek peace on earth living peaceably with all men,and lay up for ourselves treasures eternal in heaven.

Jhughes said...

You have the everlasting love of God in you doing his good pleasure in you.Those that say they do his will and do not the will of God are the once who take Gods name in vain cursing.
You are glorifying the name of God.

You, in a body that dies will be good to whoever having your soul safe by the grace of risen Lord God Jesus Christ,and no one will be able to pluck you out of his hand.

The nature of the carnal mind will have armies willing to shed innocent blood in an instant or arrest whoever for whatever in an instant. They love what God hates.
KJV, Pro; 6;16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren,
I can say a lot about this. Want to see more, ask me.

Learning how to recognize Pharaoh pastoring:
You remember the Pharaoh of Egypt? You read about him in the book of Exodus. But there is a very interesting fact that many of God’s people, and many ministries don’t recognize within this story, until it’s unpack-aged for them.
First let me give you the context. Pharaoh is said to be the “OVERSEER” of all Egypt. This word in Egypt is “episcope “ or “episcopal" and its Egyptian meaning was “the ancient pagan stargazer”. Now interestingly enough, the writers of the New Testament use this very word, and here its meaning is “one who looks over”. The New Testament representation is of one who is a *TRUE* shepherd. This is where we get our word for ministry in the Greek N.T. Don’t you find it a strange coincidence that the same word the N.T. writers used for ministry was the same word used in Egypt to describe Pharaoh? Perhaps God wants us to understand something from this? Let me suggest to you that God is revealing that there is a demonic OVERSEER, represented in the nature and character of Pharaoh and a Godly OVERSEER represented in Jesus, who is the *TRUE* shepherd who gives his life for the sheep. God is showing us that we will find in the nature and character of Pharaoh, the dark side of ministry. But it gets better!!!
You see, it was the custom in Egypt that all animals, all cattle, all horses, all slaves, in fact all of peoples in Egypt were nothing more than *ASSETS* to Pharaoh. They were there as *ASSETS* to facilitate Pharaoh’s building program. And all Pharaohs had building programs. Now what you need to know is that there was one single individual in Egypt that Pharaoh did not see as an *ASSET*. And that was his first born son. When Pharaoh looked out over all of the people of Egypt, what he saw were *ASSETS*. But when he looked at his first born son, what he saw was the heir of his inheritance. That inheritance was to rule and reign. So now you know that in Pharaohs mind, there is only one person living who is not an *ASSET*, and that is his first born son.
Now here is where it gets interesting!! You see, God dictates to Moses, a very special message to give to Pharaoh. The message is in “coded” language that only Pharaoh will understand.
Its found in Exodus 4:22 “Then say to Pharaoh, 'This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son”….Thus says the Lord God to Pharaoh “Israel is my firstborn son”.
Now you have to understand that there was only one person in all Egypt who would have understood that message. And that person was Pharaoh. God was telling Pharaoh. “The way you see your first born son is the way I see Israel! Israel is not your *ASSET*. I have established an inheritance for Israel. The inheritance I have for them is that they are to rule and reign.
Now here is the golden nugget of revelation that God is providing in this story. There are OVERSEERS everywhere in the church. But the way you can tell the difference between the *TRUE* ministry vs the false ministry is to discover what that ministry see’s when he looks at God’s people. When the *TRUE* shepherd, with the heart of Jesus, looks at God’s people he sees the inheritance that He has for them. And he is dedicated to sacrifice his life, his personal advancements, his prestige, his everything to do he whatever possibly can to see God’s people reach the inheritance that Father God has for each individual person. The *PHARAOH* Pastor on the other hand, looks at God’s people and he sees *ASSETS* for his building programs. Now you have the ability to discern the difference between a ministry operating in God’s self-sacrificing agape love, vs. a ministry that is (in Jesus’ words) working to add cubits to his own stature. The *TRUE* ministry wants YOU to reach your God given inheritance in Christ Jesus. The *FALSE* ministries assume that YOU will finance their programs, because YOU are simply an *ASSET* to them.

Peace and blessings to you Pastor Lewis, I have been reading as well as watching your messages, all I can say is Aaaaamen. I thank God for raising up someone who is not afraid to expose the works, traps and tricks of the enemy.
People tell me that i am disrespectful when I get up and walk out of a church that I have visited. When something doesn't sound right I ask the person to show me where it is in the word.
I don't keep my mouth shut when I know something is not in line with the word. I thank God for the truth, God bless you for not holding back, or sugar coating the truth.

Good Morning Pastor, As usual, I enjoyed your blog! I have been listening to you/reading your posts for about 2 years now, and I have never heard anything that I disagree with. However, I have left my church, and I did so in 2012. Something doesn't sit right with me. I'm a young believer, and my life is still a bit worldly since I left, but when ever I went to my old church I didn't feel like I was Healing, I felt like I was being judged. It is a family church, almost my whole family goes there, but I do have a sister and a few cousins who agree with me, and say this church isn't right. Do you have a way for me to contact you, so that I can email you, and you could tell me if what this church does is acceptable? I don't want to be leaving a good church, but i also do not want to stay at a evil one. Maybe I am just offended by the truth? I need an experienced outsiders opinion.

I have been listening and following your preaching. Hip-hop truths, Biblical based teachings.
I come from Nairobi, Kenya in the Eastern part of Africa. All the things you say are true. What horrifies and saddens me is to see new and talented gospel artist in their ignorance confess to christian/gospel hip-hop. Our churches are also fast becoming cash minting businesses and prosperity preaching a thing to envy.
I welcome you to Nairobi to preach to our youth especially. there is a lot of devil following in the name of being trendy.
