When I was much younger, we were usually frightened by the teaching of rapture. I remember the day my mom stepped out of the house without informing me. I searched the rooms but she weren’t there. I became afraid and started crying. I thought she has flew to heaven and left me behind. I cried profusely until she returned. That was the effect of the rapture sermon we heard consistently at that time.

Nowadays, no one talks about rapture anymore (of course it’s scary and sounds like a fairy tale). The new generation sermon is PROSPERITY – How to get rich quick without stress! Recently, it has degenerated to a contest between the heavy weights of Christendom – Who’s gonna build the largest Church?

How I wish the size of a Church can take people to heaven! How I wish our so-called men of God will stop competing with Church size but souls won. If truly there is a heaven and rapture is truly going to happen very soon, as predicted, why spend billions on earthly properties when most of their followers are poor, hungry and unable to pay their children’s school fees? Jesus was known for going around doing good. He performed genuine miracles. He fed people. But today, what we have are men of God bragging with the size of their properties and pocket. Pathetic!

“I shall build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail over it!”

This scripture is referring to the real Church – the souls won to Christ. Church in Christ’s context is ‘You and I’, not a physical building. ‘Our body is the temple of the living God’, not a mere building. ‘The Kingdom of God is within You’, not in a building. ‘Ye are Gods’, that means everyone of us, not a selected few. These are scriptures. But of course, we’re not supposed to forsake the gathering of the brethren!
