Are Churches More Worried about Mon

Are Churches More Worried About Money Than Holiness?


I believe many churches are in

a “spiritual darkness.”

As many “run away” from

God’s call for holiness!


Scripture says; “Without holiness… 

no man shall see God above!”

Many churches are more focused on 

“preaching on his love.”


God is a God of love, but requires holiness too!

What…  In the name of Christ…  Are you going to do?


You can put money in the offering that passes you by…

Or you can focus on Godly living and give Jesus a try!


You can go to church on Sunday and try to feel “good.”

 But God’s purpose for your life needs to be understood!


Heaven…  Not some building…  Needs to be your goal!

Allow the blood of Jesus to cleanse and make you whole!


Religion is really not the answer that you need to seek.

Get right with God!  And seek him each day of the week!


Forget all of the “religious gossip and chatter!”

Living for and obeying Christ is all that matters!


He is and should be your main source and supply!

Come and drink of his eternal water that never shall run dry!


Give him your love, heart and all of your attention!

May his word be the focus of your life’s direction!


Allow his spirit to create a hunger for holy living within…

He can give you the power

and victory over sin!


Time for “playing games” with God

needs to be in the past.

So you can enjoy a freedom in Christ

that will always last!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
