WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?

I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

This is "Church?"

Recently I was considering the modern church and I've concluded that this simply cannot be what Jesus had in mind when he said he would build his church. I suspect it must be disappointing for the Lord to see what the "church" has become. Club members. Consumers. Christianity lite. Un-converts. Judgement Day will no doubt be quite a surprise for many! The more ecumenical among us like to say that we'll be surprised by who is in Heaven, but I think we will be more surprised by who is not! May God have mercy on us!

Dude, I hear you and give you a hearty amen. I was just reading on the InternetMonk about how other cultures look at how we live in America and then the way we treat church and really wonder about us. As you know, I rant about this all the time. But, when someone points out that the American church is like the Emperor with no clothes, they are treated like they are insane.

Just keep on keeping on, bro. Really enjoyed visiting at your church, it's good to see people still doing things the right way and preaching from (and in your case, on) the bible!

Thanks much. I appreciate you. I hope our paths will cross again this side of eternity.

How many times can you say amen. I'll just start amen, amen, amen, amen, amen.........
